Wheels up’s new King Air 350i to be used for ‘Feeding America’
Wheels Up, the leading brand in private aviation company in the USA, last week unveiled its first-ever orange Beechcraft King Air 350i aircraft in partnership with Textron Aviation in honor of Feeding America's Hunger Action Month.
"We are grateful to Ron Draper and Textron Aviation for once again donating the design and livery of the Orange Plane to shine a light on this important cause. We are excited that Textron Aviation has joined the Meals Up movement and we are energized by their generous donation of 500,000 meals." - Kenny Dichter, Founder, CEO of Wheels Up
Wheels Up and NFL star quarterback Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks teamed up for a US$ 10 million meal donation to hunger relief organization Feeding America to help support the growing levels of food insecurity during the COVID-19 crisis.
This mission has already raised and inspired the equivalent of more than 47 million meals for Feeding America.
