Michigan Flight School Pilots Deliver Medical Supplies

Volunteer Pilots Transporting Face Shields From Indiana To Michigan

Volunteer pilots from Michigan Sea Plane Flight School in Pontiac, MI are flying face shields produced in Indiana to Michigan for delivery to health care workers on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.

Television station WJBK in Detroit reports that the owner of the flight school, Cran Jones, is working with contacts in the auto parts industry in Yorktown, IN who have re-tooled a plant to make the shields, and his pilots are making the round trip to deliver the devices in hours rather than a day that would be required to ship them by land.

Four volunteer pilots are flying weekly to Muncie, IN and loading their planes with shields for the return trip. So far, some 12,000 face shields have been delivered by the flight school pilots.

The company producing the shields is Mursix Corporation. Company spokesman Susan Carlock, who was formerly an ER nurse, told WJBK that the company plans to produce some 200,000 face shields this week and 500,000 per week in the weeks ahead.
