The Foundation

The Haitian Children’s Fund, Inc, is a California 501(c)3, federally recognized charity, founded in 1984 as the result of Lynn Garrison’s earlier activities in Haiti. During 1980, as Producer/Director, he headed an award winning film crew, with Burt Lancaster, in an effort to create a segment on Voodoo for the star’s TV series on paranormal subjects.

HIGH FLIGHT

I hope to attract old and new friends from the  worldwide aviation community to this site, in the hope “fellow spirits” will join in my effort to make a positive change in Haiti. I have been working at it since 1980, with some positive effect.

With this in mind, I will write at least one short story – each month – recounting some exciting things that I have participated in – or,  sometimes witnessed, over my lifelong association with aviation – at many levels – allowing my rub shoulders with the great, near great and forgotten.

The first of these involves my introduction to the Fokker Dr.1 Triplane, an exciting moment in my time.

My 1965 Bitz replica, Serial 001, EI-APW/ N403BM is the oldest existing Fokker Triplane in existence, since no original example has survived. I have owned it since 1966.

ACTIVITIES AND DISTRIBUTIONS

The Haitian Children’s Fund is extremely flexible, taking advantage of challenges as they emerge.

Founder and President

Lynn Garrison has  disproved the adage that “there are no old, bold fighter pilots,”  having managed to survive a life of aggressive action.   If there was action, he was one of the “go to persons.” In 1967, when the Biafrans attempted to create an independent nation, Lynn helped the with their aviation challenges. With Count Gustaf von Rosen he helped create a small attack squadron of Malmo MFI-9 light aircraft, armed with rocket projectiles.
