*A 35th Anniversary celebration for a very special organization:

Corporate Angel Network, based at Westchester County Airport, arranges free transportation for cancer patients to specialized treatment by coordinating the use of empty seats on corporate jets by matching the flight itineraries with the patient destination requests.

Since its first flight in 1981, CAN, a 501(c)(3) organization with Public Charity status, has provided nearly 50,000 flights to adults and children whose best treatment options are often thousands of miles from home.  Volunteers and a small staff coordinate the medical travel needs of patients with the scheduled flight activity of more than 500 participating corporations (including half those listed in the Fortune 100), and arrange approximately 225 patient flights each month.

Who Are We?

The Westchester Aircraft Maintenance Association, also known as WAMA, is a professional association that advances the arts and sciences of aircraft maintenance, management, and ground support.

Founded in 1960 and based at Westchester County Airport, WAMA membership provides opportunities for ongoing learning and professional networking. The organization promotes the public welfare by educating members and industry about issues concerning aircraft maintenance and management operations.

Our mission is to promote increased safety, efficiency and economy in aircraft maintenance work, and to encourage the exchange of information and provide member education through monthly meetings with planned programs.
