Aviation insurance specialists AirSure Limited today announced support for a unique relief effort targeted at bringing aid to victims of Haiti’s recent earthquake by helping move supplies from the overcrowded airport at Port Au Prince, into the Haitian backcountry, where it can more readily be distributed to those in need.

The effort will be led by AirSure Limited’s Claims Specialist, BJ Goodhart who, along with personal friends Jamie and Graham Johnson, has founded Mercy Wings Network – a nonprofit organization with the sole mission of providing air support to assist in disaster relief and recovery efforts.  

The group has secured a DeHavilland Twin Otter and plans to begin flying relief supplies and medical aid from Port au Prince to the 10 unimproved airports around Haiti, as well as other suitable landing sites that serve Haiti’s rural population.  These flights will allow much needed materials already on the ground to more quickly reach those that need them most.

Bill Behan, managing director of AirSure Limited, is lending his company’s support and expertise to the Mercy Wings effort, and has offered the company’s broad customer base the opportunity contribute financially as well – through a special account established at Wells Fargo Bank. The account can be accessed at: www.mercywingsnetwork.org and all contributions are tax deductible.

"All of us here have been amazed by the tremendous relief efforts put forth by the business aviation community worldwide" said Mr. Behan. "We simply wanted to find a way to supplement those efforts and enhance their efficiency. By helping move critical supplies into Haiti’s more rural areas for distribution, we think we can do just that" he continued. "We’re very proud of BJ and his colleagues, and look forward to the launch of their first flights in the weeks ahead, as this is a chance to put the industry we love to its highest and best use."
