Alan Purwin was a great man, a world-renowned aviator, and a brilliant entrepreneur. At Helinet, Alan was known for his passion, generosity, and ability to make us all feel as though we were a part
of something much bigger than ourselves. We are deeply saddened by the loss of our heroic founder and our thoughts and prayers go out to the Purwin family.
Alan was both a pioneer in the film industry and committed philanthropist. His legacy includes many feats such as, conducting the first vital organ transplant mission in Los Angeles, supporting the first
response rescue efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and being the only American Hollywood Movie Pilot to fly throughout the People’s Republic of China.
Alan will be missed by everyone who has had the pleasure of knowing him. His entrepreneurial vision will be remembered by everyone who has had the pleasure of working with him. There are no
words that can express our heartache for we have lost one of the world's greatest helicopter pilots and one of aviation’s greatest leaders.
