Since that first Angel flight went wheels up, AFW has successfully completed nearly 70,000 missions that comprise more than 380,000 hours and 18 million miles flown – the equivalent of $55 million in flight costs donated by AFW’s volunteer pilots and commercial airline partners. But we can do more. According to our health care partners at UCLA Medical Center and Ronald McDonald Houses, Angel Flight West is only serving 5-10% of patients who could use our services. When it comes to barriers that prevent people from accessing health care, transportation is second only to cost. Angel Flight West bridges the gap between home and health. For each dollar raised, an additional $7 of in-kind donations is given by our pilots and commercial airline partners Alaska Airlines. There is never a cost to the patients we serve.
Your generous donation allows us to reach and serve more people in need of our flights.
Thank you for supporting Angel Flight West on Giving Tuesday!
Angel Flight West delivers health and hope using donated flights to serve those with healthcare or other compelling human needs. In the air, Angel Flight West links volunteer pilots and commercial airlines with people whose non-emergency health needs require air transportation to access care. On the ground, volunteer drivers ferry passengers to and from their departure and destination airports.
