  • The Virginia Department of Aviation (DOAV) and Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) are starting a new volunteer flying organization, Virginia Volunteer Pilot Group (VVPG). It's function is to provide volunteer pilot groups such as Angel Flight, Civil Air Patrol, Virginia Helicopter Association, Pilots and Paws, LightHawk and as many others as we can recruit, a way to assist the Commonwealth communities during times of emergency.   During Katrina and other emergencies, GA Pilots have been a great asset and on some occasions a well meaning challenge to the emergency personnel.  We are working in advance to establish communications processes and procedures to utilize this wonderful asset that is GA, to assist the communities within the Commonwealth during an emergency.  We are focusing on coordinating with organizations because we can not handle thousands (or even hundreds) of pilots calling to volunteer.  Individual pilots will be given information on participating organizations and encouraged to contact them to join or provide assistance.  We have been working with some of the organizations already working communications processes and how organization could receive missions from VDEM with assistance of DOAV.  We have done our first series of table top exercises and are working to improve and streamline communications.  Organizations flying missions requested by VDEM would be provided some liability coverage for working on behalf of the Commonwealth.  Our next meeting and the first one open to all pilots is scheduled for May 5th from 10-2 at Chesterfield Airport.  The organizations will have the opportunity to have booths there and be able to discuss their roles in this process. Lindy Kirkland, President of the Air Care Alliance, is working with us to coordinate the volunteer organizations. On the DOAV staff side, Sonny Rea, one of our Command Pilots is the lead on our side working together with Scott Denny, one of our Senior Airport Planners and also supported by Vernon Carter, our Manager for Facilities, Equipment and Security, and Mike McEwen, also one of our Command Pilots.  We also hope to use VVPG to help promote the participating organizations.I've copied Lindy, Sonny, and Scott on this email. If you are interested in participating, please contact any of them for additional details.  You should see additional information on our web site soon.  www.doav.virginia.gov.Hope to see some of you at our May 5th meeting 10-2 at Chesterfield Airport (FCI).
