Grateful adopting family

Post by marshallsmith » Sat Dec 19, 2020 12:57 pm

We are so very thankful for pilots and paws bringing our puppy to her forever home from Texas all the way to western KS. Aside from donations to all the organizations involved, is it ok to tip the pilots or compensate them in any way for their outstanding service?

PNP has a general fund donation account that is on our website, pilotsnpaws.org. Due to FAA regulations our very dedicated volunteer pilots are not permitted to receive direct compensation so we assist them with the items they need for transport, i.e. crates, harnesses, cleaning wipes, ID bands, co-branded shirts, etc., all they need to do is ask for the items. There are multiple other ways in which we assist as well and by flying via our program, they are permitted to use portions of their flight as a tax deduction.
