Our representatives in Brazil were asked if we as Helimission could help out with a mission. Due to the heavy rainfall, the regular supply flights could not be carried out with small airplanes, because the ground of the grass landing strip was too soft. The airplane’s wheels would have sunk into the ground on landing and have been torn off.
The team consisted of doctors, a dentist, pastors and well-drilling specialists. Our representative was able to hire a helicopter (R66) in Belem which was flown the owner’s daughter. In the end they donated 10 hours of flying for free!
