Bahamas Relief Event For Charity by UPSV, DLVA, & IFAE @KMIA 051800ZOCT19



The Event

UPS Virtual (UPSV), Delta Virtual Airlines (DLVA), and Infinite Flight Aviation Experts (IFAE) have teamed up to bring aid to those affected by Hurricane Dorian in The Bahamas. We will be making an impact in both the Infinite Flight world and in the real world as this event is also sponsored by a real-life fundraising organization. Join us as we fly aid from our main hubs at Worldport in Louisville, Kentucky, Atlanta International in Atlanta, Georgia, and Andrews Air Force Base, to those whose lives have been dramatically affected by the recent hurricane. This event will bring awareness to the natural disaster that is affecting those in the Northern Bahamas.

We also kindly ask for donations to the Global Empowerment Mission, a non-profit organization which is serving as one of the main helpers in bringing much needed aid and assistance to those that were affected by Hurricane Dorian. More information on their goals and their organization can be found by following the link listed below, where you can also donate:

Any members in the Infinite Flight Community who provide proof of financial contribution will receive special recognition in the dropdown menu below. A screenshot of the received donation may be sent to UPS Virtual in a private message. Help us out by helping the Bahamians out! Thank you in advance for your important gift.

The Missions

This event is open to the public! If you want to aide in the relief effort, reserve your spot with either UPS Virtual or Delta Virtual Airlines, and check your gate assignment! Reservations can be made as a comment under this thread. UPSV flights will be departing as a group from our Worldport hub and will be met mid-flight by DLVA and IFAE as they depart from their respective airports. Please check departure times for each Virtual Airline below, as UPSV will be departing first. We will be trying to move approximately 2,200,000 pounds of relief supplies for those in the Bahamas - a HUGE amount that we feel is very doable given the three amazing Virtual Airlines and Virtual Organizations that have come together for this event and with the help we hope to get from the Infinite Flight Community.

Keep in mind, gate assignments and departure times are likely to change! We encourage you to return to this thread daily to update yourselves on changes. A private message including those who have signed up will be started prior to the start of the event.

This looks like an incredible event! The legendary Miss Montana (N24320), an extremely old Douglas DC-3 from Missoula Montana, flew down there last week from up here to help out the people there, deliver supplies, transport people off the island, a bunch of really cool stuff. Very cool idea for an event!
