The 2017 hurricane season is rivaling the most active ever. Unforgettable hurricanes, such as Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria, will be remembered and compared for years and years to come. There have been a great number of Atlantic locations that have suffered directly from these storms, but what is most impactful is not seeing how our locations picked back up after the storm, but instead how our Atlantic family has come together to help others.
Atlantic Farmingdale (FRG) has had the honor of not only watching but also being part of a true lifelong friendship between two tenants. Mike P. and Neil M. have been friends since childhood. In their early years of flying, Neil made a model airplane of Mike’s first aircraft, a Piper Dakota.
Atlantic CRQ recently had the pleasure of hosting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Carlsbad for an aviation learning experience they are sure to remember. There were 25 aspiring aviators between the ages of 6 -10 that enjoyed touring our CRQ location, as well as, having a meet and greet with locally based aviators.
Atlantic El Paso (ELP) recently hosted an event for the El Paso Diabetes Association (EPDA) in their hangar. Every year in the last week of June, Camp Lydia Mann takes place for kids ages 5 to 12. This is a summer camp designed for kids with diabetes or at risk to develop diabetes.
Atlantic Aviation in Reno (RNO) has made it a point to be more involved in giving back within their community this year. After several employees threw around some ideas, they chose to come together and donate their time and efforts by volunteering for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada (FBNN).
