Patient Airlift Services (PALS)
Patient Airlift Services, or PALS, returns for the second year for its annual fly in event. Based in Farmingdale, New York, Patient AirLift Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that arranges free air transportation for individuals requiring medical diagnosis, treatment or follow-up who cannot afford or are unable to fly commercially.
PALS also arranges volunteer flights for family members of patients as compassionate missions, to ensure patients have support when they are away home for long periods. PALS is proud to assist military personnel and their families with free flights to aid in the recovery and rehabilitation processes for our wounded veterans.
The Fly-In event allows both PALS’ pilots and employees to get together and celebrate the past year’s success.
The NJ Ninety-Nines, hosting their annual Poker Run, returns to MMU for a second consecutive year of using the airport as the terminus location for the event.
