Welcome to AeroAngel! Our primary mission is to provide free air transportation, using high-performance aircraft and a crew of volunteer professional pilots, to provide flights to those who, because of their health, cannot fly by commercial airline or use ground transportation to travel for medical care.
Founded in 2010 and based in Denver, Colorado, AeroAngel is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization. Therefore, 100% of donations are used for flight-related expenses, including aircraft leases, fuel, and landing fees. We are the only air charity in the country that provides short notice, long-distance flights using pressurized aircraft that can seat 4 or more persons.
The following are examples of the types of flights flown by AeroAngel:
- People who require transportation to medical care for whom commercial air travel is precluded because of their health or because it is unavailable in their location;
- Children with chronic medical conditions or serious illness who are unable to afford transportation to a special needs camp;
- Volunteers of charitable groups traveling to remote areas to provide medical care or to meet other compelling humanitarian needs; and
- Wounded soldiers and their families who are unable to pay for travel for medical care or other worthy purposes.
(We are unable to provide financial support for the purchase of commercial airline tickets or to transport passengers in need of a stretcher.)
