Ensure that passengers are able to get to the critical care and support they need, regardless of weather conditions and pilot availability.
Commerical Ticket Fund
Angel Flight South Central's purpose is to relieve the financial and emotional burden many passengers endure when they need to travel long distances for medical care. Our volunteer pilots donate their time and use their own planes to fly patients for free to their appointments. However, weather and a lack of available pilots results in hundreds of cancelled or unfilled missions each year.
Our core mission will always be to provide our passengers with a private flight flown by our volunteer pilots. When that option is not available, because of weather or pilot availability, we can use designated funds to purchase commercial airline tickets for passengers who meet specific criteria. The funds can also support the critical coordination required for passengers utilizing the commercial ticket fund.
AFSC is unable to accept donor contributions that are designated to a specific mission or individual, even if that individual is an Angel Flight passenger, per IRS Revenue Ruling 62-113.
