Mission
Angel Flight Central's mission is to serve people in need by arranging charitable flights for access to health care and for other humanitarian purposes. Angel Flight Central is proud to transport children to medical appointments, special needs camps and for other humanitarian purposes.

Travel is primarily in small non-pressurized aircraft when the distance is too far to drive or to relieve the burden of this additional expense when families are already challenged with medical and family expenses.
Program Description
To qualify for an Angel Flight passengers must:
  • Have a financial need for assistance
  • Be medically stable
  • Be ambulatory, walk to and get into the aircraft and sit upright in a standard aircraft seat or if of age use a car seat
  • The passengers are responsible for providing their own ground transportation & lodging
  • See the Angel Flight Central website for a complete list of passenger requirements
Angel Flight Central will match the request to a volunteer pilot who can safely transport children and adults to access treatment. A medical release is obtained to assure stability for flight. A liability release is also obtained as passengers agree to fly of their own free will. Longer distance flights may be linked in 2 or 3 legs requiring transfer to another plane; dependent upon distance.
