Angel Flight South Central's (AFSC) primary mission is to arrange free flights for patients requiring scheduled medical treatment not available to them locally. This can include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and a variety of other specialized therapies or surgeries. In addition, we will help patients travel for qualified second medical opinions recommended by their physician. Other humanitarian requests are considered on a case by case basis.
Angel Flight South Central does not require that a passenger meet financial guidelines to qualify for a flight, however, we ask that our passengers demonstrate a compelling need before they ask for transportation, as each mission represents a significant cost to a volunteer pilot. Our pilots donate their time, aircraft, and all expenses involved to help people who otherwise would not be able to travel for medical treatment or for other compelling humanitarian reasons.
Step-by-step instructions are provided below. If you have further questions, please call our mission coordinators toll free at 888-500-0433.
Note: We do not provide Air Ambulance or emergency rescue services. There are no flight nurses on Angel Flight aircraft.

If your medical condition has not changed, then a new medical release form is not required. If you have had surgery since your last Angel Flight, then a doctor will need to re-confirm that you are able to fly in a non-pressurized plane.
Once we receive the request, we will contact you to confirm your upcoming travel dates and try to find a pilot for your new flights.
