Patient AirLift Services / Sky Hope is looking for Caravan Owners and Pilots







Disaster Relief operations continue at PALS Sky Hope! It’s been four weeks since Maria made landfall, but folks are still in desperate need of help!   

PALS has teamed up with Rescue Global and Airlink to provide relief in the island of Dominica, where over 90% of the island has been destroyed by Hurricane Maria. The premature departure of larger NGOs and government agencies that normally provide lift and aid has left tens of thousands in dire need of our help.  General Aviation is of vital importance! 

THE NEED: C-208 pilots with aircraft who would be willing to give a few days of flying between now and the end of October. (Possibly into November)

THE MISSIONS: Flights in and out of the island of Dominica and surrounding islands to provide imminently needed humanitarian aid as well as transporting evacuees with critical health needs. You would need to be comfortable landing at TDCF (Canefield) airport, a 3000 ft asphalt runway, with a right turn approach over some terrain.

THE OPERATION: Thanks to Rescue Global, a base of operations has been established in Barbados. Accommodations and food are provided at Holders House a very nice set-up! (see pic below).  TheFuel in Barbados is at cost, there is 50% off handling and waived fees.  All customs paperwork is being handled by Rescue Global—all you have to do is file and fly! 


Most importantly, this is a chance for truly impactful, life-saving work!  

HOW TO HELP:  If you can devote some time between now and the end of October, please register here ASAP and a Pilot Coordinator will be in contact with next steps.  https://afids.palservices.org/pending_member/shortForm
