The Veterans Airlift Command has formed an alliance with Mach 2 Management to seek out corporate sponsorship for VAC’s ongoing work providing free general aviation transportation for wounded veterans and their families.
“By partnering with Mach 2, it allows me to remain focused on what I am most passionate about—recruiting volunteer aircraft owners and identifying the needs among our wounded war heroes,” said VAC “Air Boss” Walt Fricke. “I have seen the excellent results that Mach 2 has provided for clients like Ford, Jaguar, and the EAA, and we are confident that they will deliver the same kind of results for VAC.”
Mach 2 will soon begin contacting companies, business and organizations in an effort to tell the VAC story.
