The expedited delivery of emergency medical equipment to California – which has been hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic – was performed by Daher in a joint effort with Percussionaire Corporation, the producer of ventilators for treatment of critically ill patients. Daher and Percussionaire both have operations in Sandpoint, Idaho, and they teamed up to airlift 240 high-frequency percussive ventilators to California’s capital city of Sacramento during two flights on April 15-16, utilizing a new-production Kodiak 100 Series II airplane. "Daher has the same culture of helping people as Percussionaire, and we recognized the importance of making the airlift resources available for this life-saving equipment," explained Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Aircraft Division. Jason Eddy, Vice President of Operations at Daher’s Sandpoint facility, added: “These delivery flights also exemplified how Kodiak airplanes are regularly used in point-to-point dedicated air service, as well as between remote locations. This is why the Kodiak was created, and is invaluable in bringing communities together around the world."
