ElectraNet has a responsibility and part to play within our general community. We strive to work within the community in the areas where we are working.
ElectraNet have sponsored Angel Flights, based out of the Aldinga Aero Club since 2007. Angel Flights is a service that provides a vital link between city and country hospitals via air. Transporting seriously ill people and their families when required to and from hospital for treatment.
ElectraNet’s sponsorship for 2008/09 covered fuel costs for 26 flights. These were to and/or from Mt Gambier, Jamestown, Port Lincoln & Robinvale. Arriving flights are met on land by the equivalent on land group, the “Earth Angels” who transport the patient to the hospital. Landing fees are waived by the airports as a good gesture.
Aldinga’s Aero Club currently has 5 pilots who are qualified and who own their own planes, capable of conducting the state’s Angel Flights.
These flights can save hours in transport and travel time, critical when you are seriously ill and not up to a full return trip by car or bus.
An ongoing issue for Angel Flights are the ongoing rising fuel prices.
ElectraNet are proud to continue our sponsorship of this valuable community service for the year 2009/10.
