New Smyrna Beach, FL – Several Epic instructors and students flew in three of the flight academy’s Cessnas this past month up to Kennesaw, Georgia for Epic’s second rescue mission for non-profit organization, Pilots N Paws. Satisfying their cross-country flight training requirements with the trip, the crew stayed overnight in Georgia and attended the banquet for all of the rescue volunteers.

As the sun rose the following morning, all of the volunteers filled their airplanes with dogs of all ages and breeds, and they transported the pups to their designated rescue locations. The Epic crew was assigned to fly their furry friends to St. Augustine, FL where they were met by a team that then re-homed the canines.

Pilots N Paws strives to “provide an environment in which volunteers can come together and arrange or schedule rescue flights, overnight foster care or shelter, and all other related activities,” according to their website.

Only the second of Epic’s rescue missions, there are already plans for future trips to continue joining the volunteers from around the world in showing their support for saving the lives of innocent animals and their passion for aviation.
