Leonard Greene, pilot and corporate jet owner, knows that most aircraft fly with no more than two or three passengers. With his aviation connections and original charitable donation he founding the Corporate Angel Network, a network of planes and pilots dedicated to relieving the financial burden of flying to cancer treatment centers across the country.
