Review for Wings of Mercy, Zeeland, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In the past I have been quite active with this organization and can state unequivocally that they do a great service for people who otherwise would be wiped out by the cost of transportation for medical treatment or simply would have to forgo the treatment and suffer the consequences, which often would be death.
All involved with Wings of Mercy will go to great lengths to fill the needs of suffering people. It is a caring organization and it exists for all of the right reasons.
Many passengers have sent me heartfelt Thank You cards and letters that I will keep for the rest of my life as a reminder of the lives that WOM has touched. One time while walking down a sidewalk an approaching woman suddenly cried out "My pilot!" and ran to me. I had flown her husband for repeated cancer treatments that allowed him a chance to spend a few more years with his young family that included children under 5 yrs old. She won't forget it- neither will I.
None of the 100+ pilots get paid for their time or dedication to Wings of Mercy and the scheduling office runs as lean as it gets. Good people all around.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

both as a pilot and through long conversations with organizers, board members and flight schedulers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Wings Of Mercy is put together in such a way that it is constantly under review from within. Any changes needed are ongoing.
