Just be aware that the FAA has imposed SLOT controls into the airports in PR & VI. Only flights that have a Slot, and confirmed logistic on the ramp will be allow to land.

Plane are required to have round trip fuel + reserves fuel to make the trip. (If they get one of the few slots available). Slot are assigned to "Higher" priority planes first. A AirForce C130 will get one. A small private charter will not.

If you are going to donate good, You should prioritize Small Light weight item. Water, Can Goods, Cloths should be on the bottom of the list.
