Plane Swap – Piper Heads to Belize, 206 Comes Home

On July 30, we flew our newly refurbished and painted Piper Cherokee 6 to Belize where our pilot, TJ Stewart, is using it to fly medical missions for longtime partner, Belize Emergency Response Team (BERT). Volunteer pilots Don Hoerstkamp, Rick Oloteo and Ed Schertz delivered the Piper, but they did not return empty handed. The Piper replaced our Cessna N206KY, which has a long history with Wings of Hope, with tours of duty in Guatemala, Guyana, the U.S., Tanzania and Belize. The 206 returned home to St. Louis where it will be put back in service as a Medical Relief & Air Transport plane.
