Check Please

Mercy Flight of WNY accepted a check for $7,000 during the NFTA’s Board meeting, Mon. Oct. 22. The donation was raised at the Airport Noise Mitigation Symposium recently held in and around Buffalo Niagara.

The Airport Noise Mitigation Symposium is held annually, convening airport professionals, community groups, consultants and manufacturers from across the country. They compare ideas and experiences with regard to reducing noise around airports.

This year, the ANMS wanted to give something back to the host community. Donating to Mercy Flight was an easy choice. Instead of the usual party to kick-off the symposium, the ANMS decided to have an event right at the Mercy Flight hangar, with all of the proceeds going to the not-for-profit organization.

The BNIA’s own Mark Clark helped to organize the 12th annual conference which, by all reports, may have been the best one ever.
