An immediate effort is being spearheaded by Jordan Smith (Broadwave Live Cam), and team of volunteers to transport needed supplies and life saving equipment to Key West and the Florida Keys. We need your help. We currently need pilots and planes for the airlift which is being organized out of Lakeland Airport and we have set up an gofundme page to fund the fuel needed of the various aircraft.
The GoFund Me page is at: gofundme.com/irmaflights. These funds will be used solely to put fuel into aircraft which will fly under the Aerobridge banner “Compassion Flight.” Thru Aerobridge, we are staging supplies, aircraft and equipment in Lakeland, FL. We are also picking up supplies all across the US and getting them prepared for transport and then to distribute to the Florida Keys from our base at Sun N’ Fun in Lakeland, FL. The operational costs of these airplanes are being paid for by the pilots so we are just looking to provide fuel to make many many round trips. We are scheduled to make a reconnaissance flight Tuesday (12th) and start emergency flights, supply and equipment transportation immediately thereafter. We need your support.
