To recognize those who gave their lives for our freedom, Wheels Up flew two families of fallen heroes to Washington D.C. this past weekend
Wheels Up provided a private flight yesterday for two families of fallen heroes to Washington, DC for Memorial Day Weekend in partnership with TAPS, a nonprofit that provides comfort and resources to those grieving the death of a military loved one. It’s part of the private jet provider’s extensive philanthropic efforts.
Wheels Up partnered with Golden Harvest Food Bank to provide 100,000 meals in the 25-county service area surrounding Augusta, Georgia
Kicking off its annual presence at the Masters, Wheels Up partnered with Golden Harvest Food Bank for a volunteer day. The country’s second-largest for-hire private aviation provider also made a grant providing 100,000 meals across the Food Bank’s 25-county service area.
Wheels Up Cares’ King Air 350is are spicing up the tarmacs at private aviation airports and bringing awareness to some very good causes
For folks who love airplanes as well as flying privately, it’s always fun to see some of the unique exteriors.
Of course, just like birders, it’s the rare breeds that cause the most excitement. Frankly, most private jets have white exteriors with minimalist gray, brown, or beige cheat lines.
It’s the fourth King Air to be painted as part of philanthropic initiatives from Wheels Up Cares
Wheels Up yesterday unveiled a camouflage-painted Beechcraft
King Air 350i aircraft as part of its Wheels Up Cares philanthropic initiative.
The Wheels Up Camouflage Plane has a custom livery that was
created and painted by Textron Aviation Inc. and honors those in the military
who bravely served and continue to serve our country, while benefiting the
Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a non-profit organization that
offers compassionate care to those grieving the loss of a military loved one.
The Camouflage Beechcraft King Air 350i will remain
indefinitely in the Wheels Up fleet to serve as a flying symbol of TAPS’ mission.
