Please help us, help our neighbors in the Bahamas. As you know by now, the catastrophic damage caused by Hurricane Dorian has left wide-spread devastation through-out the Bahamas. Lives were lost, many are still missing, and the livelihoods of countless Bahamians have been decimated.
We are partnering with Stuart Jet Center, Joe Rieger of Blue Marlin Cove, and Captain Patrick Price of DayMaker Charters to bring immediate relief supplies to the Bahamian residents. As soon as we are given the "all clear" by the Bahamian Government, aid will be on its' way. We will be making several trips to the islands, for as long as it takes, to make a difference. Until the waters are safe to navigate, supplies will be transported via a UH60 Blackhawk Helicopter, capable of facilitating 6,000 pound flight loads.
UPDATE FROM PAT PRICE OF DAYMAKER CHARTERS: “Our first flight left (Wednesday 9/4) ahead of schedule. The pilots wanted to do a recon of the area for West End, OBB and BMC. 4 crew members and 2 team members went with a small Payload of stuff that was dropped at the off Jet Center ahead of schedule. Once we receive word as well from Sergio at OBB that the runway is open for aircraft we have logistics set up per instructions of OBB for flights flying in. Planes can load at the Jet Center with items that are being donated for BMC and OBB employees, their families and the surrounding townships. It’s estimated that we may be dealing with a total of 7500 people needing assistance. We have received word that Walkers runway is open. We are waiting on a extra fuel tank to carry payloads to there. We have received permission for a landing zone in close proximity to Rosie’s and Grand. My goal is to have 2 payloads delivered there (Thursday 9/5).
Thanks in advance for everyone’s help and well keep you up to date as things are needed and flights are flown. For now keep the donations coming.”
