Pilot N Paws Flyaway event during Southeast Aviation Expo

On Saturday, September 27, 2014 a special air caravan containing rescued animals will depart from the Greenville Downtown Airport in S.C. as part of the Southeast Aviation Expo. Their Destination? The cargo’s new homes and non-kill shelters throughout the U.S.  Each year, Pilots N Paws, holds a large rescue event. This event has never taken place in Greenville.  Last year, when it was held in Hinesville, GA., 50 private pilots volunteered to fly 400 animals to safety and others joined in with vans for shorter, over land travel. “Many healthy and adoptable animals are put down each year.  While, neutering or spaying animals is the ultimate goal because it helps reduce new births and overpopulation; there are animals that are already here that need to be saved,” stated Pilots N Paws President & Co-founder Debi Boies.  Throughout the year, Pilots N Paws, a 501 c (3) registered charitable organization, connects pilots and animals, in jeopardy of being “put down” due to the high number of animals needing homes being far greater then the number of families looking to adopt a pet. Unfortunately, many animals aren’t “fixed” so they reproduce and the offspring are eventually dropped off at shelters. In other regions of the country fewer animals are available for adoption. Pilots N Paws was formed to help get animals from areas of high animal euthanasia to new homes in other regions.   Once a year, volunteers come together for a huge transport effort to help raise awareness of the problem and finds others willing to step in to help on the ground, through a donation or of course, up in the air!

Aviation Touches Lives in South Carolina

Aviation touches the lives of countless South Carolinians in ways that might surprise you. In honor of Aviation Week Aug. 17-23, the South Carolina Aviation Association and the South Carolina Aeronautics Commission will showcase the impact aviation has on the state, its people and the economy. With more than 100 aerospace-related companies in South Carolina, aviation is a multi-billion-dollar industry and supports more than 70,000 jobs. Aviation and airports in the state contribute millions each year in tax benefits to state and local governments. A seven-minute video will be released Friday, August 15 showcasing businesses across South Carolina that rely on aviation, both commercial service and general aviation airports, for the efficient transport of people and goods. Among those featured are the Medical University of South Carolina’s MEDUCARE, Columbia resident Tia Sumter, the Greenville County Sheriff’s Department, Charleston Florist and Landrum-based Pilots N Paws. The video will be distributed via Facebook and YouTube and aviation-related web sites. Gov. Nikki Haley has recognized the week of Aug. 17-23 with a proclamation honoring the state’s six commercial service airports, 61 general aviation airports and four busy military airfields. All are essential underpinnings to South Carolina’s diversified business base, growing population and growing tourism industry. Airports in South Carolina support recreational flying, provide a gateway to communities and tourist attractions, accommodate agricultural spraying, support air cargo and air freight shipments, help law enforcement, support the military and its operations, provide access in times of emergency and support medical needs and the medical profession. Also during Aviation Week, the South Carolina Aeronautics Commission and the South Carolina Aviation Association will hold the third annual Aerospace Industry Dinner following the Inaugural South Carolina Aerospace Industry Conference from 7:00-9:00 pm at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. For more details on the activities during Aviation Week around the state, contact Katie Koon at 877-359-7222. Visit scaaonline.com and the South Carolina Aviation Association Facebook page.  ...
