DONATIONS & BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS

Help Aviation Sans Frontières to continue to fly where others do not fly or no longer fly !
We, the ASF Family, never hesitate to use ASF planes to deliver humanitarian aid directly to isolated people and villages. Like any humanitarian association, ASF operates thanks to the generosity of its donors. What ASF pilots are most afraid of is being stuck on an airbase, unable to answer a call for help, because they cannot get ASF planes off the ground due to a lack of money. Although ASF pilots and field staff are volunteers, ASF needs to buy fuel and to maintain its aircrafts often under extreme conditions.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEMBERS & SECRETARY GENERAL

Mr Charles F. YETERIAN, President
My passion for aviation goes back a long way – in my days in Graduate School in the US, I enrolled in an amateur flying club to pilot light aircraft. Later on in my career with a New York-based bank, I was a member of a team, along with other Colleagues, who helped establish a leasing activity for jet aircraft with airlines worldwide and launch a dedicated aeronautical financing activity to better service aircraft / engine manufacturers, their suppliers and airlines at large. Since then, with two operational leasing companies, I participated and managed numerous financing structures, joint ventures, and investment funds in the commercial aviation field.

My motivation is to combine my vast experience in the aviation industry with my desire to help people in need, with the objective of serving the humanitarian cause through cooperation with NGOs and other associations active in the humanitarian space. I find that ASF is the most suitable way to deploy my efforts.
