Angel Flight

Angel Flight, created by a group of pilots who believe in the benefit of volunteering, is a non-profit charitable organization of pilots, volunteers, and friends. They arrange free air transportation for any legitimate medically related need, especially to people who are financially distressed or who are in a time-critical, non-emergency situation due to their medical condition.

Patients using Angel Flight’s services are usually traveling for surgery, chemotherapy, dialysis, and other treatments. There is never a fee of any kind, either to the patient or the health care provider, for an Angel Flight.
