Flying DART Exercise (Disaster Airlift Response Team) in my Zenith

This was my second year to participate in our local county's DART exercise.  I flew three missions during our mock exercise last weekend. We deliver food to food banks in the area using donated food as our load for practice.  All loads were weighed and loaded in general aviation aircraft at the pilots direction. I flew 100 lbs on one trip and 75 lbs the second. Took pics of all the bridges on my recon flight. The STOL CH 701 is perfect for this. This really is a good program  and it enhances Emergency Management resources in the area.

Please take a minute and look at our website.
