  • Aerobridge, a volunteer aviation group that coordinates disaster response, is enlisting the resources of general aviation to bring disaster relief to Japan. After getting its start flying in over 1,000 people and 250,000 pounds of critical supplies in to hard-hit post-Katrina New Orleans, Aerobridge swelled in response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti, airlifting over 3,800 people and 1,400,000 pounds of supplies through over five million dollars in donated flight hours. With its experience of rapid response to cataclysmic tragedy, Aerobridge is well-prepared to marshall the resources of general aviation to assist the Japanese people. Though the situation on the ground is still too dangerous to transport volunteers at this time, Aerobridge is actively looking for available cargo space to transport vital supplies to the areas touched by the disaster.
