Atlanta Air Charter, Inc. and Mountain Motorsports Team Up to Support Hurricane Harvey Relief

Atlanta Air Charter, Inc. and Mountain Motorsports have teamed up to collect and deliver much needed supplies to Hurricane Harvey victims in Houston, TX.
On Saturday, September 2, 2017, a fully loaded King Air 200 departed Cobb County International Airport at 1:00PM destined for Houston's Hobby Airport. Dustin Farthing, the President of Mountain Motorsports of Marietta, contacted Atlanta Air Charter with his vision to help families affected by flooding caused by the hurricane. The team at Atlanta Air Charter immediately responded and was happy to assist. Their mission was to transport numerous pallets of fresh water, blankets, clothing, toys, and baby supplies to those families in dire need.
No matter what race or walk of life, people helping people in Texas have been an inspiration to many Americans, and Dustin Farthing decided to be at the forefront of the effort to make a true, valuable contribution. Atlanta Air Charter, Inc. had offered up one of their King Airs free of charge to assist Dustin, and several company employees helped to load all the cargo onto the airplane in Cobb County. Atlanta Air Charter's managing partner, Chip Kaczynski cleared the path with the authorities in Houston so the team would be permitted to land and offload their cargo at the MillionAir Terminal at Hobby Airport. Retired USAFR Colonel Don Fletcher piloted the flight, alongside Connor Schalk.
The Mountain Motor Sports / Atlanta Air Charter team was on standby over the Labor Day Weekend in Houston to help local volunteers in facilitating the distribution of bottled water, food, and supplies.
