On television you are often confronted with disaster relief and evacuation flights. Helicopters help people out of rising rivers, floods or inundations on the coast. Dyke breaches or the delivery of technical or medical relief supplies such as tents, water, food, blood reserves or medicines make our services with helicopters or small or large aircraft indispensable. Our services are always in demand when normal means are no longer successful or when people need to be rescued from an acute situation. Professional help is required in all of the cases described!
Disaster Relief — Humanitarian Aid and Evacuation Flights
Our relief flights in disaster areas can have many motivations. In Italy, entire villages were buried in an earthquake in the past. Dog teams have to be moved quickly to the operational areas so that lives can still be saved under buried houses. But also in the area of freight charter we can set up entire tent cities with helicopters in a short time and create emergency solutions. In cooperation with aid organizations, the impossible can be made real!
In the event of natural disasters, we can transport important medicines, water, food and other cargo to the crisis areas at short notice. If villages or regions are cut off from the outside world, we also help with the distribution of water and food.
Tsunami disaster areas
A tsunami is a natural disaster that creates indescribable forces that cannot be imagined. In Asia alone, over 1.7 million people living on the coast of the Indian Ocean have become homeless. With all the tools in the world, you cannot help these people in a hurry. A total of around 230,000 people died in this seaquake. Only the country Indonesia had over 160,000 fatalities. Many children lost their parents and the suffering was indescribable. Many helpers from all over the world helped to prevent an even bigger catastrophe.
Evacuation flights with a private jet
We can organize repatriation of injured persons in hospitals depending on the area of operation. This can be done with cars, small aircraft, a helicopter or a private jet.
Political changes & natural disasters
Civil wars, natural disasters or political changes can also lead to emergency flights. This also includes accidents in travel, such as train accidents. In many cases the only way out is by helicopter. In the event of major natural disasters, help from the military is often necessary. Volunteers also work for the help organization and help immediately.
Crisis situations — help on your own
If you come to a crisis region through no fault of your own, try to leave the area on your own. Usually you should find your way to the nearest airport. If you have a booking, it does not say whether the flight will actually take place! However, you will find trained staff at the airport who know how to act in such situations. An organized airport has emergency plans. All employees are trained and help immediately.
Humanitarian aid in crisis areas
Crisis areas can arise in many parts of our world and humanitarian aid is required. In third world countries in particular, many people are fleeing war and persecution. The use of helicopters can alleviate the situation and refugee camps are set up. In order to build a refugee camp, the simplest things are often missing. A tent city with toilets and a water supply must be set up in a hurry. Hygiene is the top priority and there must be no sources of disease where the refugees infect each other.
Especially in Corona times, small things such as the minimum distances have to be considered. Soup kitchens and seating have to be created. In colder regions blankets and tarpaulins have to be distributed. Mosquito nets in malaria areas are very important for the entire family and also for the employees of the aid organizations.
