About Grace Flight America

Angel Flight America is a non-profit organization of pilots and other volunteers dedicated to serving the community by arranging free private air transportation for needy medical patients who cannot afford to utilize normal, commercial transportation. Angel Flight also provides services to blood, organ and tissue banks. Angel Flight America will arrange free transportation by air for any legitimate, medically related need or purpose. This service is available to any individual, medical agency, facility, health care or service organization or auxiliary. We service the Heartland of America. Patients are allowed to be accompanied by one or two family members or support persons. Our patients are usually traveling for surgery, chemotherapy, dialysis and other treatment and/or financially distressed or who are in a time-critical situation due to their medical condition. We arrange service to those who meet the following guidelines:**Must be ambulatory; must have a personally signed letter from the physician; must not be able to afford available alternative air transportation; must have a legitimate medical need to avoid lengthy surface transportation; must be able to ride in small non-pressurized aircraft that is not equipped for medical emergencies; must have ground transportation to and from the airport and the treatment center; must sign a waiver form releasing Angel Flight and volunteer pilots from liability; must be an outpatient.***Other important information: The completed application forms with accompanying documents must be faxed or mailed and must be received by Angel Flight Office before passengers may board aircraft.
