When natural disasters strike, the business aviation community snaps into action to deliver relief to people and communities. Often, financial or in-kind donations of aircraft and flight crews are offered to transport specialists and supplies into disaster-stricken areas.
Business aviation's help now is needed to assist relief efforts targeted to the Northeast U.S., which was hit by “Superstorm” Sandy on October 29, 2012.
In the aftermath of the Hurricane Sandy, people and organizations from across the business aviation community mobilized to coordinate pilots, aircraft, flight-planning services and other assets to move relief and supplies into the disaster area. Learn more about the industry’s work to help those in crisis.
