Hurricane (Florence) Help Available from GA Pilots


SCAA has been contacted by Nathan Wilson, a volunteer with AeroBridge.   This group organizes general aviation resources to fly supplies and support to communities who find themselves cut off and need emergency assistance.  To clarify they are not EMS, but we can help fly them in if they are needed.   AeroBridge has resources on hand and actively work with other relief supply organizations.

PLEASE contact AeroBridge if you find your community in need of assistance.  They can transform your airport into a local distribution center.   All they need is an open runway and a list of what is needed.

If you are connected with your local government pass on Nathan and AeroBridge’s contact information.   After an event it becomes very difficult for AeroBridge and their volunteers to reach out to you, so please contact them.   They want to help.

Our hope is that our resources will not be needed, however if they are AeroBridge volunteers are ready and waiting to respond!

All of our support and services are volunteer, our assistance is free.

 

How can you help them help us?

1.)    Introduce AeroBridge to your local emergency management team as a readily available resource.

2.)    Contact AeroBridge with information on your runway/airport conditions so we can disseminate actual conditions to our pilots.

3.)    Tell AeroBridge what is needed.
