Key Air President and CEO, Greg Kinsella recently visited Walter Reed Medical Center and presented wounded veteran Master Sergeant Cedric King with a model replica of a Gulfstream 650 in conjunction with the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and its support of the Veterans Airlift Command (VAC) Organization.  The Veterans Airlift Command is a charitable organization that provides free air transportation to wounded warriors, veterans, and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes through a network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots.

As the keynote speaker during NATA’s BBQ Dinner and Raffle at their Air Charter Summit event held in June near Washington, DC, Mr. King raised awareness about the VAC and gave a moving presentation that included how the VAC has aided in his recovery.  Wounded by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) during his tour of duty, Mr. King lost both legs above the knees and is now walking by use of his new ‘bionic legs’.  Truly an inspiration to all wounded veterans, Mr. King plans to attend Duke University to pursue a JD/MBA Law Degree and will be participating in a two month long jog from Washington, DC to his home state of North Carolina.

Through the generosity of the Summit participants, NATA’s raffle event raised nearly $50,000 in support of the VAC, more than twice the amount as raised in 2013. Key Air was proud to be amongst those who participated in this most worthy cause.
