Angel Flight America Katrina HQ Relocates

For Assistance: 1-866-897-0687 or katrina@angelflightamerica.org

Angel Flight America's (AFA) disaster response mission coordination operation relocated to the airport in Addison, TX. Angel Flight Coordinator Jerry Dorre, who has been working non-stop on the ground in Baton Rouge for the last week, has been named the Director of the Angel Flight America Hurricane Katrina Disaster Airlift.

"We've still got trained volunteers at the airport in Baton Rouge to help coordinate with local shelters and agencies, but due to a significant increase in requests for Angel Flight's service we are bringing all of our coordination efforts together in one location to better handle the volume and ensure a safe and professional operation," said AFA leader Butch Smith. "We've put together over a thousand [1,000+] missions helping to reunite families and relocate people evacuated from areas that were flooded by Hurricane Katrina."

Angel Flight America is a national organization dedicated to serving people in situations of compelling need by arranging free air transportation through volunteer general aviation pilots.

Angel Flight is on the front line every day of the year helping children and adults in need to access life-saving medical care. The national network of several regional charitable aviation organizations also arranges flights of compassion and disaster response.

The AFA mission coordination team is working 24/7 covering all corners of the country and focusing their professional efforts, limited funds and volunteer pilot resources on requests to:

  • Reunite families separated during the evacuation
  • Relocate families out of shelters that have confirmed safe housing elsewhere.
