Volunteer pilot Jack Schuler of Hilton Head Island has been named the winner of the S.C. Pilot of the Year Award.
Schuler was one of a dozen pilots from six states honored Nov. 11 for his involvement in Angel Flight Southeast. AFSE is a nonprofit organization composed of volunteer pilots who fly patients to distant medical facilities to receive treatment. Schuler and the other pilots pay for all flight costs so the patients can fly for free.
