    ATLANTA PILOTS NEED HELP TO GET TO HAITI PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    We are Pilots from Atlanta who have helicopters that need fuel and supplies paid for and also need to lease another two helicopters (though i’m sure someone would donate them temporarily if they knew about us). We are law enforcement officers current or former and CAN NOT FIND CONTACTS TO HELP US with funds to get to Haiti to assist.

    We have a contact in the DR with helicopters just sitting there because they need basic maint. and fuel but otherwise, very sound and READY TO FLY SEARCH AND RESCUE/DROP RELIEF MISSIONS!

    TIME IS AGAINST US.. PLEASE HELP!

    UPDATE! HERE ARE 2 EMAILS COMBINED ONE OF MY TEAM MEMBERS JUST RECEIVED!

    “URGENT - When you get those choppers up in the air, can you work with us?

    Hopital Sacre Coeur in Milot, Haiti has only received FOUR
    patients by airlift so far. People are dying in the streets. We have a
    full-service hospital with two ORs, a trauma team and an orthopaedic team
    standing on the ground waiting for patients! They can land helicopters as
    they did ONE yesterday - we have an ambulance - we are ready - we do NOT
    need to be contacted in advance. I IMPLORE your help with this!! You can help get
    the patients to us - it would be HUGE!

    One chopper came from TAHOMA (US Navy vessel) yesterday with four patients. A second chopper with six patients plus newborn infant were on the way and the chopper developed a hydraulic leak and had to return to the vessel. No other choppers have arrived. It is almost 11:00 AM - time is WASTING!! We can take any kind of chopper from any organization.

    Please start airlifting patients to us! We have two operating rooms and surgeons set up to run 24 hours a day - WE JUST NEED THE PATIENTS. An orthopaedic team and a trauma team are at the hospital standing by NOW waiting for patients! Resources are being wasted and people are dying while surgeons are waiting! Please get patients airlifted in NOW!

    Latest email requests for help DIRECTLY FROM HAITI TO MY TEAM!!!

    “Our surgeons have begun to speculate on the numbers of people languishing in PAP that have perished since the last and only flight came to Milot. Septic poisoning and other very curable infections are taking their toll on the innocents. When we hear a chopper in the distance, we all run to the landing field like shipwrecked sailors hoping that it will land and bring us someone to save. We pray, we wait, we do everything in preparation over and over again, and no one seems to be listening. Around the edges of our hearts, we even wonder if anyone cares. It is almost obscene to sit and do nothing in the face of this calamity but we are powerless without the attention and determined spirits of those who are needed to bring us patients. There is music filtering from the church across the street which declares that God is with us and all will be well. I would like to believe this now especially in this very dark hour.”

    In the name of Jesus I feel like there’s no one out there while I’m making these posts about people dying. We desperately need the kind of funds that only come with mass media involved donations and the starpower of the people listed on this site. We’re sitting on our hands without the funds and can’t seem to access anybody anywhere.

    GOD have mercy.

    My pilots and team are ready to go if anyone can help us.
