About Sol Relief
After Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused massive devastation in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and many other areas of the Caribbean, a former St. Croix, U.S.V.I. resident and pilot, Jennifer Lockwood, wanted to help. Jennifer partnered with St. Pete Air and the Glasscock Family Foundation to create an innovative disaster relief mission utilizing small aircraft to serve U.S.V.I and Puerto Rico with immediate aid. From that mission a new venture focused on providing humanitarian aid and disaster relief with the use of aviation was formed – Sol Relief, Inc. In 2018, Bill Auer, owner of Tampa Bay Air Charter, was welcomed to the Board of Directors.
