Angel Flight West

Angel Flight West is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization that arranges free, non-emergency air travel for Service members and their Families, with serious medical conditions and other compelling needs.

Their network of 1,900 pilots throughout the 13 western states donate their aircraft, piloting skills, and all flying costs to help Families in need, enabling them to receive vital treatment that might otherwise be inaccessible because of financial, medical, or geographic limitations.

Angel Flight West pilots give freely of their time and money, restoring health and hope to those whose lives have been disrupted by illness, disaster, or other life-altering events. Their only reward is the joy of knowing how much of a difference they've made.
