Flying with Purpose

Jami Ray

For Skip and Victoria Moore of Seagrove Beach, “723 Whiskey Bravo” is more than just a catchy name for their top of the line restaurant off of 30A — it’s a way of life.

723, or July 23, is the Moore’s wedding anniversary. The sentimental digits also grace the back of the Moore’s Cirrus SR22 single engine composite aircraft. Shortly after retiring from their native Atlanta, the duo became avid aviators and partnered with an organization known as Angel Flight ( — a charitable group that arranges free air transportation for people who have a medical need that can’t be filled in their local area. Five years and over a dozen flights in, the pair just can’t get enough. “Having an aircraft is one thing,” admitted Victoria, “but Angel Flight allows us to fly with purpose.”

Successful entrepreneurs even in retirement, Victoria and Skip have known their fair share of charitable organizations. But nothing has resonated with this compassionate couple like Angel Flight. “The results are absolute and immediate,” said Skip. “It’s such a tangible charity. It’s touched us deeply.”
