AirCommand I recently added itself to the long list of airshow professionals donating their skills and expertise to the Cecil Field Airshow. The event, to be held April 18th and 19th in Jacksonville, FL is in support of the Alan Henley Foundation — a charitable organization whose sole purpose is to benefit Alan's treatment and his family. Alan Henley is lead pilot for the AeroShell Team. Tragically, he was paralyzed from the chest down while playing with his children at home in July, 2008. AirCommand I will be stationed at show center, serving as show control for the event. More information about this event is available at http://www.cecilfield.aero/index.html.
