Jim shared the following when reflecting on Angel Flight NE and assisting patients:

“Flying Angel Flight NE missions over the years have grown to become an extremely rewarding and meaningful experience.  The feeling of gratitude that I get from helping people in need with transportation comes together with the passengers’ grateful appreciation of the service to create a very positive energy that is not often experienced.  Being able to complete four missions in two days last week was a rare and particularly rewarding opportunity.  I feel blessed to be part of an awesome team of mission coordinators and pilots.”
