2014 Top Flyers

Congratulations on another outstanding year for Angel Flight West! Your help and support in 2014 enabled Angel Flight West to continue its invaluable work in arranging free air transportation to those with critical healthcare or social needs.

Included below are our top-flying pilots from each wing for the 2014 calendar year. We are so thankful for each and every one the 1700+ volunteer pilots who make our “miracles of flight” possible. YOU make hope and health possible for people who otherwise would not have access.

Indio Fundraising Event 2/18/15

Angel Flight West staff, volunteers and supporters attended a fun and memorable evening in Indio, CA on Wednesday, February 18. Patients, pilots, and partners shared their inspiring stories to raise awareness and support for Angel Flight West. This celebration of our cause was at the beautiful Estancia de Bougainvillea, hosted by Tom and Mary Gallagher and sponsored by Denise Wilson and our friends at Desert Jet. Thank you to Signature Flight in Thermal for waiving all fees and providing tenant pricing and complimentary ground transportation for anyone flying in.

Through generous donations made at this event, AFW raised funds to sponsor over 60 flights in 2015! Thank you to all of our donors for supporting the life changing work that AFW accomplishes through the gift of flight!
