SKYTRAC Systems Ltd. (SKYTRAC), a global leader of intelligent connectivity solutions for aviation, announced they will be co-sponsoring the NASCAR Fleur-De-Lis exhibit at SHIFT Air Medical Transport Conference (AMTC) 2021 taking place in Fort Worth, Texas, from October 31st to November 2nd, alongside partner Mercy Flight Central, an independent and not for-profit provider of emergency air medical transport services.
In June of 2020, Mercy Flight Central was called to rescue a patient from an accident at a construction site. The patient, Craig Partee, happened to be an owner of the NASCAR team Fleur-De-Lis Motorsports. In support of Mercy Flight Central, Craig Partee and his team dedicated his number 66 Chevrolet Camaro with Mercy Flight Central livery for the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. The 66 Camaro was named “2nd Chances”, symbolic of Mr. Partee’s second chance at life, and carried the Mercy Flight Central tail number of the helicopter that transported Mr. Partee from the accident to the trauma center.
In the wake of Mr. Partee being nominated for the 2020 MedEvac Foundation Patient of the Year award, Mr. Partee’s NASCAR team will be exhibiting at SHIFT AMTC this year. The Fleur-De-Lis race car painted with Mercy Flight Central’s colors will be exhibited to reflect Mr. Partee’s continued support and appreciation of the emergency medical services that saved his life.
“I am honored to have been nominated and selected for the MedEvac Foundation Patient of the Year award,” mentions Craig Partee. “It is important to me to bring awareness to Mercy Flight Central and their essential work. Featuring them on the Xfinity car at Watkins Glen International was part of that. I am pleased to have SKYTRAC as a co-sponsor to help transport the number 66 Chevy Camaro to the SHIFT AMTC 2021 to be displayed in the exhibit hall and continue to raise awareness.”
“Working with partners like Mercy Flight Central epitomizes our vision here at SKYTRAC of creating customer value through intelligent connectivity solutions, and clearly beyond,” says Luke Billington, Regional Business Manager at SKYTRAC. “Co- sponsoring Mr. Partee’s NASCAR team exhibit is our way of recognizing the tangible and lifesaving impact that our solutions play a part in creating.”
SKYTRAC supports Mercy Flight Central’s mission to ensure the rapid, safe, and cost-effective delivery of expert response teams by enabling mission-critical capabilities including Automated Flight Following, Flight Data Monitoring, and Satellite Voice, Text, and Push-to-Talk communications.
