Pilots for Patients

Pilots for Patients:   An introductory meeting was held Wednesday morning at Landmark Aviation. President and CEO Philip Thomas, along with Senator Mike Walsworth and other Pilots for Patients members flew in from Monroe. Although less than ten private pilots attended the meeting, Thomas said he was hopeful and will return to Lafayette to continue to recruit.

"This is just setting up the network. I'm going to keep coming back, so that we can spread the word, and finally begin to build a small network of patients to begin helping."

Steve Broussard, a private pilot, said he will help spread the word in Lafayette, and believes Acadiana is a deserving area for the cause.

"People in Acadiana are so giving and want to help their fellow man. There's no doubt that we will get some interested parties here that would help."
