BAC and Danbury Aviation Customer Appreciation Party
This year we will once again be having our Customer Appreciation Party at Danbury Aviation on July 1, 2011 from 6:00 to 10:30PM.
As in previous years, we will be enjoying the celebration with good BBQ, refreshments; including, soda, beer and wine — and of course we will be watching the fireworks display from the Front Row!
We will also have TOMMY TUNES as our guest DJ playing all of your favorite songs before AND AFTER the fireworks. Plan on spending the final hour with us while traffic dissipates as we host “Venetian” hour — coffee, deserts, music and dancing!

We look forward to seeing you!
Pilots Flying Wounded Vets for Free
This month, Veterans Airlift Command volunteer and BAC friend, Andre Bohy allowed wounded Iraqi war vet, Sgt. 1st Class Frances Montes Crawford the chance to fly to Florida to see her son graduate high school. Learn how Sgt. Montes discovered that through this very special nonprofit organization, there is such thing as a free ride. Learn more about her story and the wonderful organization that gives wounded military personnel the ability to fly free of charge for medical care, special occasions and other compassionate purposes in this article from The Fay Observer, June 19, 2011 issue.
If you're a pilot interested in donating your time to our wounded warriors, learn more at the Veterans Airlift Command site.
