The IRS has classified the Corporate Angel Network, the nonprofit organization that provides free air transportation for cancer patients using empty seats on corporate aircraft, as a "public charity." The classification, which is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2001, means CAN donors receive the most favorable income-tax treatment for their donations, and that CAN may accept funding from private foundations. For additional information on CAN, call (914) 328-1313, or visit its Web site at

“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
