Nearly three months after Haiti’s devastating earthquake, AIN found business aviation still immersed in day-to-day rescue efforts. Flights organized by Care (Corporate Aviation Responding in Emergencies) have put 3,800 people, medical teams and aid workers into the country and brought more than 700 critically injured patients back to the U.S. for treatment. In addition, more than 100 donated corporate and private aircraft have moved 1.5 million pounds of food, medical supplies, and equipment into the country. “Our flight needs are just as critical now as they were a couple of days after the earthquake,” said Robin Eissler, Care’s vice president. Added Care president Marianne Stevenson: “Every airplane is maxed out in both directions.” Read the full report on BJTonline.
