Two Hurricanes - No Match for Worldflight TEAM USA

Two Hurricanes - No Match for Worldflight TEAM USA

 

In the wee hours of August 26th, 2017 Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, and with it brought several trailing storms.

One of these terrible storms hit the home of our simulator in Sarasota, FL hard and caused over a foot of water in the owners home and over 3 feet of water in the garage where the simulator was setup. Unfortunately the Boeing 737 Simulator was completely destroyed.

A week later, Hurricane Irma went up the west coast of Florida and narrowly missed Sarasota as it changed direction and headed for Orlando, again causing more damage to the simulator, and delaying the construction efforts to rebuild from the previous flooding.

One month later, we are discussing how we can GIVE BACK, and help our Host rebuild after this total tragedy. After putting our heads together, and trying not to concentrate on the negative, guess what we have decided to do.?

This year, for Worldflight 2017 we are going to pull together, we are going to get together and rebuild the simulator and we are going to raise money for the All Children's Hospital in St Petersburg, FL at the same time.

That is correct, you heard us right, From November 4th to the 11th 2017, a Skeleton crew will rebuild the simulator from scratch and try to return it to the sky. We will stream live the rebuilding process and hope to make it in the air for some if not all of the flights scheduled. Wourldflight Team USA will Fly for Worldflight this year. With your help and your support for the All Children's Hospital we can still raise money for the Charity and try to get Delta 209 back in the sky.

Stay tuned for more information as we will post more details as they become available.
