“You All Are the Pilots?”

Angel Flight passengers often do a double-take when they first meet volunteer pilot Zach Kilgore. Zach, 23, is one of the youngest pilots flying for AFSC, but don’t let that youthful face fool you. He has more than 1,000 hours of flight time under his belt and is a certified flying instructor. And he has an ageless care for his passengers, keeping water and blankets on board and nearly always bringing his friend Will Kyle along as a flight assistant to make sure passengers are comfortable during their journey.
