Types of Missions

“Angel Flight West arranges free air transportation in response to health care and other compelling human needs.”

That is our mission statement.

There are so many ways that people need help in the form of transportation. Medical treatment is only one of them. And there are even a wide variety of circumstances in which the need for medical treatment arises.

Here are some examples of compelling reasons for free transportation:

  • To and from advanced treatment for disease not available locally
  • Traveling to and from pre or post transplant appointments
  • Transplant (with a large time window, pending availability)
  • Second opinions
  • Clinical trials
  • Expert consultations
  • Rare diseases
  • Pediatric care
  • Veteran’s Administration Care

In addition, here a few examples of other types of service we provide:

  • Transportation for children to special needs camps
  • Wounded Warriors
  • Transportation for family members who will provide care to sick relatives
  • Domestic Violence Relocation
  • Disaster relief
  • Pre adoption visits
  • Traveling to see someone in end stages

What we can’t accommodate:

  • Funerals
  • Relocation
  • Air ambulance needs
  • Short notice, short window transplant flights
