Does your employer offer a matching gift program? If so, you may be able to increase the power of your gift to Pilots to the Rescue!
Many employers match your personal donations – some 1:1 and others as much as 3:1. Companies with matching gift programs include GE, Soros, Gap, ExxonMobil, CarMax, BP, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Pfizer, IBM, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Amex, and thousands more. Employer matching gifts may also be available to you if you are the spouse of an employee, a retired employee, or the spouse/widow/widower of a retiree. Check with your company for more information.

When the manager at the Fairfield, NJ airport where we keep the PTTR plane asked for help with a Beagle in need, Top Dog pilot Michael Schneider didn’t hesitate to help out. He quickly reached out to our friends at A New Chance in Bedford Hills, NY who agreed to help, and then made sure the little guy got to them safely.
Speaking of A New Chance, check out the 2020 Happy Tails page on their website – you’ll see some familiar faces from previous PTTR flights!
Southeast pilot John finished the first leg of the flight without incident, but just before Top Dog Pilot Michael and the PTTR plane landed in North Carolina to transfer the pets from one plane to the other, the alternator in the PTTR plane failed.
They landed safely, but again, we weren’t about to let the pets down! Instead of flying them to Philadelphia, Michael drove them all the way.
Everyone made the trip to Philly safely, just a bit later than planned.
