Operation Airdrop solves "week one" problems after a major disaster, by moving critical supply in hours, not days.
Operation Airdrop consulted with Kenmore Air and the Washington Seaplane Pilots Association in a statewide exercise to simulate aviation response to a large magnitude earthquake on the United States west coast.
Operation Airdrop flew supplies from University Air in Gainesville, Florida into areas affected by hurricane Michael in both Florida and Georgia, in collaboration with World Hope International, LabCorp, and Cobra Energy.
Operation Airdrop volunteers coordinated hundreds of general aviation compassion flights from Raleigh/Durham during the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. 284,000 pounds of supplies were flown over 520 flights in six days.
Operation Airdrop joined forces with the MLBPA, with former players Jose Cruz Jr., Luis Alicea, Nandy Serrano, and Ivan 'Pudge' Rodriguez to charter cargo flights of emergency supplies to Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
One week after Hurricane Harvey airborne relief efforts ended, Operation Airdrop was called to Florida after Hurricane Irma. Our volunteers flew supplies to damaged areas throughout the state, basing aircraft from both Tallahassee and Lakeland.
With over 270 volunteer aircraft from around the region, Operation Airdrop volunteers delivered over 250,000 pounds of emergency supplies to areas along the Texas coast in the four days following Hurricane Harvey's landfall near Houston.
