Business Aviation Step Up To Assist With Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts NBAA C

NBAA Coordinating With The Red Cross Through HERO Database

The catastrophic flooding created by Hurricane Harvey has forced the closure of several airports in the greater Houston area, as well as others in southeast Texas. The FAA has already begun issuing TFR NOTAMS for rescue and recovery operations, and those TFRs should have contact information for pilots wishing to obtain permission to conduct humanitarian relief flights into those areas.

As the recovery efforts begin, NBAA is in coordination with the Red Cross, federal agencies and volunteer aviation relief groups, regarding relief efforts when areas impacted by Tropical Storm Harvey are again made accessible. The association's HERO (Humanitarian Emergency Response Operator) database allows member companies to submit aircraft, personnel and other available assets, to be shared with relief organizations.

"Business aviation has always provided critical support for natural disaster relief efforts, and I know our industry will respond in this time of need as well," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. You can register your company's assets for Harvey-response initiatives through NBAA's HERO database.

NBAA Air Traffic Services (ATS) at the FAA Air Traffic Control System Command Center also distributes email alerts about operational issues, including those related to weather.
