RENO, NV – Care Flight, northern Nevada's non-profit community medical helicopter service, has announced the second annual “Flight for a Good Cause” fundraising event. Care Flight is giving the public a unique opportunity to experience first-hand what it is like to ride inside a medical helicopter without the emergency.
Care Flight will spend Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 2 and 3, offering flights at two of its three base locations as part of a fundraising campaign designed to generate funds to go toward lifesaving equipment. Flights will be 20 minutes long and are $145 per seat with 3 seats available per flight. Each seat on board will be a window seat and the flight patterns will be pre-set depending on the location of each base.
The fundraising flights will run from 8AM – 4 PM on the following days and locations:
• Saturday, Nov. 2 at REMSA, 450 Edison Way, Reno (fly over Reno)
• Sunday, Nov. 3 at the Carson Valley Medical Center, 1107 Hwy 395, Gardnerville (fly over the Carson Range)
The first flight of each day is scheduled for 8AM with flights running at the top and bottom of every hour until 4PM.
