GrandView performs first cancer flight
GrandView Aviation has partnered with Corporate Angel Network to provide free flights to cancer patients. The first patient has been flown home from NYC following treatment.
Nine-year-old Guy was treated to LEGO on his return trip after cancer treatment in New York City.

US operator GrandView Aviation has partnered with Corporate Angel Network (CAN) to provide free flights to cancer patients and their family members and caregivers who need to travel for treatment. Every week, GrandView gives CAN access to empty leg flights in the hope of matching a flight with a patient’s treatment travel needs.

CAN is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to help cancer patients access the best treatment centres in the US by arranging free travel on corporate aircraft. Business jet travel makes it possible for patients to travel to specialised medical centres, especially patients in locations with minimal airline access. Whether they are travelling for surgery, clinical trial or a second opinion, CAN aims to reduce a patient’s physical, emotional and financial stress by providing a seat on a corporate flight. Over the past 40 years it has transported more than 66,000 patients.

“We were so pleased to be able to fly nine-year-old Guy, his 13-year-old brother and their father home from treatment in New York City,” says GrandView president Jessie Naor. “When we found out Guy loved LEGO, we gave him a set to enjoy assembling during the trip. We are honoured to join many other corporations that support Corporate Angel Network’s mission to help cancer patients access treatment through the use of business jets and look forward to providing many more patient trips in the future.”
