AERObridge Response to  the Earthquake in Ecuador.

 

The general aviation community within Ecuador had been flying night and day for the first week following the devastating earthquake.

 

A local volunteer, flying a Piper Seneca, recently reported:

 

"The roads have been habilitated. Those destroyed have been detoured and ground communication is available, therefore we are now sending all supplies by ground. There are still some flights to smaller runways that were closed but have been habilitated for the emergency to connect to other small towns affected. We can't land the Piper Seneca there, so other aircraft are going there like Cessna 182, 172, or 206."

 

As the response shifts to ground transport, we are working with airlines to secure space for critical supplies to flow from the US to the hardest hit areas.

 

We want to thank AOPA, NBAA and the Aviation Community for communicating the information rapidly and rallying toward the goal of disaster response.  Thank you to those of you who volunteered to assist.

 

We acknowledge that the geographic location of this disaster was too far for the majority of our support base. Our mission statement identifies our area of response to be the US and 1000 nm outside our border.
