Aerobridge is initiating a limited activation in response to Hurricane Sandy. The organization is coordinating donated aircraft to bring first-response donations to Farmingdale, N.Y., where they will be picked up and transported via truck to Staten Island and Lower Manhattan to assist 5,000 children and disadvantaged families. Aerobridge is looking for pilots with aircraft who can acquire food, water, winter jackets, batteries and flashlights and fly them to Farmingdale. “This effort is a very limited aviation response for a maximum of seven days, until mass care donations can be made available,” it said.
