Did you know that dogs like to fly, also?
Veteran pilot Greg Lawrence, who is deaf, has been involved with service dogs for the past 20 years and has recently started to cooperate with »Pilots’N’Paws« – a program to save dogs from being euthanized by delivering them to their forever homes by aircraft!
Pipistrel already wrote about Greg and the dogs he helps to save: http://www.pipistrel.si/news/four-paws-get-wings-on-their-way-to-freedom

Greg and his service dog Tee, who is used to co-piloting and loves to travel around in the cockpit, will be present at Pipistrel’s booth and Greg will also hold a lecture about dog rescue on Saturday, July 30 at 2:30 PM on Forum Stage 1.
Be sure to drop by for more information about how pilots can help save lives of innocent animals!
