Why I'm a PWAP Charity Champion: Why Angel Flight? To be hard up for money can be bad. To be hard up and seriously sick is extra tough. But to be hard up, seriously sick and hundreds of kilometres from help is worse than you can imagine! Angel Flight, launched as an Australian charity in April 2003, is the initiative of Bill Bristow AM a successful businessman, experienced pilot and very proud winner of the Australian of the Year Award – Queensland 2005. Angel Flight is a charity which coordinates non-emergency flights to assist country people to access specialist medical treatment that would otherwise be unavailable to them because of vast distance and high travel costs. All flights are provided by volunteer pilots using their own aircraft or aircraft they have hired at their own expense. All flights are free and may involve travel to medical facilities anywhere in Australia. Your donation will be well spent. 85% of your donation will be spent, hands-on, operating such flights. It will pay for aviation fuel, for coordination staff and for communication costs. Only 15% will go on overheads like power and rent. all our advertising, accounting and legal costs are donated free of charge by wonderful professionals and the media. We will not bug you for more. We sincerely humbled that you have chosen to help us and will not abuse the trust you have placed in us by putting you on a mailing list and asking again and again. To give again is entirely up to you. If you would like to stay a little more involved with Angel Flight, the website, www.angelflight.org.au has lots of mission stories and activity updates. You may even want to register as an Earth Angel. We'd love to have you! In 2009, Bill Bristow AM was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia for service to rural and remote communities through the establishment of Angel Flight Australia and as a supporter of charitable organisations.
