Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Many of our oldest veterans have never been thanked for their service to our country. An Honor Flight brings the community together to thank these veterans with an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington DC to see their memorials and to experience a full day of honor and thanks for their service.

We leverage a passionate group of volunteers and board members to meticulously plan every portion of the flight day for our veterans. From 5am airport check-ins, tailored stops in Washington DC, and finally exciting homecoming arrivals, our goal is a memorable and safe day for our veterans.

All of this could not be possible without our wonderful volunteers both at the airport and guardians taking care of our veterans throughout the day. Enough cannot be said about our dedicated vendor partners as well. They provide top notch meals, veteran and guardian apparel, and merchandise that adds to flight day experience. Finally we recognize our corporate and individual donors who have supported 10 years (and counting) of flights!

Our organization leverages a large volunteer group unpaid board members to ensure the majority of donations go to our organization's mission of flying more veterans.

During our first 10 years (starting in 2008) we've flown nearly 7,000 veterans. We've also expanded the veterans we serve - starting with WWII and Korea, and most recently Vietnam. Our 50th flight day occurred April 2019, and we plan to continue flying veterans in the years to come.
