HALO-Flight Welcomes New Pilot! - A non-profit helicopter emergency medical service for south Texas.

HALO-Flight is excited to announce that we have filled our line pilot position and welcome Walt Rose to our team. Mr. Rose began his career in the Army and afterward began flying for emergency air medical services, of which he has ten years’ experience. Walt holds an Associate degree in Applied Science majoring in Information Technology, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Professional Aeronautics. He has extensive experience piloting aircraft and will be an excellent addition here at HALO-Flight!

Walt enjoys motorcycles, wood working, and yard work. And is looking forward to working with the men and women of HALO-Flight!

We are excited to announce that our most recent fundraiser, the 2013 Una Caja Dove Shoot, presented by CITGO, was very successful! It was held Wednesday, October 16, at Laura Berry’s Lonesome Dove Ranch. We were very pleased to have such a great turnout and such a great time! We grossed over $83,000 with net proceeds helping to protect over one-million people living in the 28,000 square miles of HALO-Flight’s 26-county service area.

We had 15 teams participating, along with over 50 silent auction items, shooting games, food and drinks, and almost 90 dove shot! We had beautiful weather, great sponsors (CITGO, Riviera Telephone Company, Coastal Land Drilling, American Bank, L&F Distributors, Diamond B, Americana Arms, and Ainsworth Trucking), and many helpful volunteers. We could not have asked for more! Our only hope is that everyone returns next year and has just as good, if not better, a time as this year!
