As the situation in Haiti continues to unfold, Dassault Falcon would like to recognize those Falcon operators who have provided much needed assistance to the area.
“We know of at least eight Falcon operators among the numerous missions that have flown into Haiti,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon. “We all recognize the devastation to the area and the long term need for assistance to the people of Haiti. We applaud the efforts of the business aviation community to provide whatever assistance necessary.”
As part of the ongoing effort, on Wednesday, January 20th Dassault Falcon Jet Captain Jack Kemper and First Officer Tom Willis and Cabin Attendant Sue Taylor, flew Dassault Falcon’s 900EX EASy demonstrator aircraft from Fort Lauderdale International (KFLL) to Cap-Haitien International Airport (MTCH) in northern Haiti. The mission was arranged by Corporate Aviation Responding to Emergencies (CARE) and responded to a need for additional medical personnel at a hospital near Cap-Haitien Airport. The group was comprised of two doctors, two first responders, five nurses and two nurse practitioners and a significant amount of medical supplies.
“The support from the business aviation community has been amazing. CARE is on a pace to launch one flight to Haiti every thirty minutes,” said Maryanne Stevenson, President of CARE. “However, we must recognize that the recovery effort will not be measured in weeks or months but rather in years. Continued support is necessary.”
