Most of our active members will probably tell you that the best benefit of being an Angel Flight West member is having the chance to help others in need by providing transportation.
However, there are some tangible benefits of membership as well. We know that flying is expensive, and that our volunteers make a significant financial contribution every time they fly. We’re working on ways to help with those costs, such as our rebate program with Philips 66 (see below for details), as well as waived landing and parking fees at many airports and FBOs for Angel Flight West missions.
If you have contacts at FBOs, we’d be happy to follow through with them to requests fuel and other discounts for our members. Please send any contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you join, you will receive:
- A laminated ID badge, personalized with your photo, that contains our 24-hour Hotline and our Mission Preparation Checklist.
- A subscription to our informative quarterly newsletter, “Flights of Hope.”
- The Angel Flight West Member’s Handbook via email.
On an ongoing basis, members enjoy:
- Access to the Philips 66 rebate program
- Waived fees at FBOs and airports while on AFW Missions
- Social events
Angel Flight West is a nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organization, so your contributions may be tax-deductible.
In an effort to make your Angel Flight West flying experience more affordable, we have entered into an agreement with Phillips 66® and their Aviation Fuel FBO’s.
Phillips 66® Aviation is committed to supporting pilots that volunteer their time and aircraft to provide free air transportation for those who would not be able to get from where they are to where they need for compelling reasons. As a supporter of these pilots and the non-profit organizations that arrange the flights, Phillips 66® has agreed to provide Angel Flight West Pilots a $1-per-gallon avgas rebate.
The guidelines and procedures to start benefiting from this generous rebate are available on the Member Resources Page. Please take a moment to review and join the program and also pass along this news to your pilot friends who might want to join Angel Flight West and share in the benefits.
