General aviation woke up on a cool winter morning in January 2010 to an unprecedented challenge — the aftermath of the magnitude 7.0 Haiti earthquake. Like never before or ever since, GA spontaneously morphed into an international task force in response to the horror of the disaster that befell the tiny poorest nation of our hemisphere. On short notice private pilots and aircraft operators from coast to coast put the humanitarian crisis at the top of their priority and scrambled to accomplish unprecedented feats of airborne philanthropy. This impromptu achievement that came to be known as the ‘2010 Haiti Airlift’, is an enduring testament to the can – do spirit of American general aviation on the global scale. They conquered the inconveniences, the economic slump, insurance issues, high fuel prices and security concerns to make a difference far beyond our shores. Compelled by compassion or a providential call to duty, or both, hundreds of airlift flyers put their hearts in their wings and blazed a new trail in the tropical apocalypse.
