FREEPORT, Maine —
Patient Airlift Services (PALS) is a non-profit organization that provides private plane transportation for those with serious medical conditions at no charge. The family of a Freeport boy battling a rare genetic disease said when it comes to traveling hundreds of miles for medical treatment, they were happy they had PALS.
WINDSOR LOCKS — Brian Lisoski and Joe Howley are pilots and after witnessing what natural disasters can do to a community, their time in the sky gave them a chance to realize that their plane isn’t the only thing with wings.
“When Joe and I talk about flying we really talk about helping others,” says Lisoski.
Howley helped create “PALS” or Patient Airlift Services.
The organization connects volunteer pilots with patients suffering in natural disasters and flies them to area hospitals.
