Hurricane Harvey Relief Flights
August 31, 2017, 07:01:41 am
For more information: https://news.metroairvirtual.com/2017/08/31/hurricane-harvey/

We encourage those who are able, please make a donation to assist with the relief efforts. The cleanup is expected to last for months and all cash donations will help. Any pilot who flies one of the relief flights and/or let's us know they have made a donation to one of the many charities accepting funds for Harvey victims will be awarded the Emergency Relief badge.

Our scheduled flights from Kansas City into Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas will be running as relief flights for the next few weeks.
Flights are now active and available to fly. Check the Hurricane Harvey Relief Flights schedule to bid.



Note: With fuel loading being uncertain at KIAH, hub managers will be lenient on flights carrying extra fuel to KIAH for the next week.

Flew Hurricane Harvey relief aid flight last night (I put those words in remark field of my filed PREIP).  Please issue my pilot account relief aid badge award.  Meanwhile, I will be making few more relief aid flights in the coming days.

Quick question:  must we observe the type of aircraft for those flights or are we allowed bigger Metro Air planes which mean better and more loads of cargo aid supplies??? A330s and 777-300s would be great for bigger and more loads of relief aid supplies.

Regards,

Aharon

You should be using the assigned aircraft type (or a substitute when allowed). While larger aircraft can certainly hold more supplies, we don't have the aircraft in our fleet to be able to be pulled from other scheduled destinations. In addition, the airports are already being serviced with a number of other aircraft from other organizations so there is limited resources on the ground at the relief flight destination airports.
