Airborne Disaster Relief
Operation Airdrop organizes volunteers with private aircraft to deliver essential supply in the wake of natural disasters.

Operation Airdrop solves "week one" problems after a major disaster, by moving critical supply in hours, not days.
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.
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.
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.
