2017 Hurricane Maria Relief Fl

Posted by Mark Toler on 11/18/2017




Once again here at Virtual Northwest Airlines, just 11 days after we started our Relief Flights for Texas and Hurricane Harvey, then Florida was hit with a Hurricane named Irma, and now weeks later another Hurricane named Maria struck Puerto Rico and devastated the entire Island. vNWA Airlines will again reach out with Relief Flights beginning Saturday September 31st 2017 through Sunday November 19th. We will be operating primarily Cargo Flights out of MSP, DTW, MEM, EHAM & PANC into Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (TJSJ) in San Juan Puerto Rico.

Pilots may also fly ANY passenger route we have in our wACARS system into TJSJ and receive credit for this Relief Effort as well.

As always we will be having two challenges, one being the landing rate challenge the pilot with the best landing rate will be awarded 20 bonus hours, and the second challenge will be the pilot with the most flights will be awarded 15 extra bonus hours, the pilot with the 2nd most flights will be awarded 10 extra bonus hours, and the pilot with the 3rd most flights will be awarded 5 extra bonus hours. 

Please check the Forums for flight updates and post replies or stories of your Relief Flight experiences. 

As always thanks to each and everyone who takes time to participate to show your concern to all those that were affected by these terrible storms.
