N8234T, based in St. Louis (KSUS) is standing by for any needed transports on Northern/Western/Eastern routes in my region. Please advise if any transports will be coming our way, we can take a couple/few small crated dogs or cats to their destinations.

Hi Nick. We met at Triple Tree and I started my PnP life then. I have had one rewarding experience after another (6 so far in last 2 months!). I'm retired, and money is certainly an issue, but the joy of saving lives that no one cares about and giving back to other loving people, is a small part of the gift I've been given from my flying career. My wife and I will be glad to help the GC Flyway. We live in Rock Hill, SC. (KUZA). We will pick up in the GSP?? area and can go to either Winston Salem or (the full distance) to Warrenville. We have a C-182 and the back seat will stay in. Questions: What airport around "Clemson". What airport around "Warrensvill"?? BWTW; Warrensville is within the 60 mile Special Instruction Necessary airspace. Pilots need to have specific training to enter it. Easy to get from online from
AOPA, Please be more specific re: where the SC airport retrieval site is from the New Orleans rescue AND there is no airport in Warrensville?? We are so ready!! Let us know ASAP; we need to ask one of our friends to come and take care of our 2 best friends at home while we do this!! THX . Keith & Suzy/.

Hi Art and thank you for your kind offer. I will let Jeff Bennett know, he is the pilot in charge of the Florida legs. To my knowledge, he has pilots to cover the need but you never know, we may just need another one. Thank you again.

Hi Keith and Suzy, I sent you an email privately and I believe Nick will as well. So glad to have met you both at Triple Tree and even more glad to see how much you are enjoying saving these lives! I plan on being on the ground in New Orleans and Clemson so will see you in a couple of weeks!

TFR alert

Postby slagskot on Fri Sep 10, 2010 8:27 pm

Also be aware that there will be various TFR's in effect in the NYC area as the UN tries to keep us from flying killer puppies into the general assembly... Curses! Foiled again!
