Angel Flight South Central’s volunteer pilots donate their time, aircraft, and the cost of the flight to help people travel for medical treatment and care or other humanitarian reasons. Our pilots are able to meet passengers at regional airports close to home and bring them to their final destination. Passengers are able to avoid lengthy drives to commercial airports, long lines at TSA, and long-term parking costs at the airport.
Angel Flight South Central does not require passengers to meet specific financial conditions. However, we do ask our passengers to demonstrate a compelling need for the flight, as each mission represents a significant cost to a volunteer pilot.
Angel Flight South Central provides free air transportation for ambulatory passengers requiring non-emergency medical treatments, surgeries, and critical care appointments. We do not provide air ambulance or emergency rescue services. Please note that our volunteer pilots are not medically trained and unable to provide medical support.
Passengers who need to travel for various humanitarian reasons may be eligible for free air transportation through AFSC. These missions are considered on a case-by-case basis and validation by a social worker or approved non-profit may be required. Some examples of humanitarian missions include:
Relocation services for victims of domestic violence or human trafficking.
Family members visiting a child or parent in hospice or receiving long-term treatment.
Transporting blood, tissue samples, or organs supporting critical medical care and procedures.
Disaster relief efforts.
Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers help abused and neglected children find a safe place to live. Angel Flight South Central helps CASA volunteers stay connected with children who have been placed in foster homes outside of their local areas.
CASA missions may include travel to:
Visit children living in foster care placements in other cities or states.
Conduct site visits to prospective foster homes where a child may be placed.
