Rusty Lavergne is the founder of Flying Wings of Louisiana along with his wife and co-founder, Kelly Lavergne. Rusty is a former Army Blackhawk Helicopter pilot and has been fulfilling his passion of aviation by flying helicopters for the past 24 years. Rustys love of aviation has led him to flying fixed wing airplanes where he has acquired many ratings. Having raised their 3 sons, Rusty and Kelly are ready for another chapter in life of giving back. Cancer has affected both of their families and they decided to help by supporting the smallest victims, the children. Flying Wings will serve pediatric cancer patients and their families living in the south. South Louisiana is Rusty and Kelly's home, and Flying Wings is their contribution to the community. The organization may consider expanding its geographical reach in the future, but while it's still growing, the organization will focus on serving children in the local communities.
