Kentucky Volunteer Aviators:
The KVA was formed in January of 2011 be EAA Chapter 110 members to serve the Kentucky Commonwealth in its emergency response needs. KVA founder Gary Katz realized there was a void in the quick response system when forming this group. The KVA now works with state and national agencies including the Kentucky State Police, the Kentucky Air National Guard, several County Sheriff’s Departments, and the Civil Air Patrol. The KVA members provide their private aircraft and personal time for search and rescue, surveillance, and emergency medical transportation when ground routes are unavailable.
