Services Provided: Angel Flight West provides free transportation to medical treatment for people who cannot afford public transportation, or who cannot tolerate it for health reasons. Angel Flight also flies missions in response to other compelling needs. Angel Flight West accepts requests from individuals or health care professionals such as social workers and physicians. Angel Flight West links volunteer private pilots with needy people whose non-emergency healthcare problems require travel to or from medical facilities throughout the eleven western states.
000 THOUSAND MILES AND PATIENT HAS TO BE MEDICAL STABLE. MEDICAL REFERRAL
Angel Flight provides transportation in the Western States only: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Under most circumstances, you must schedule a flight at least five working days in advance. In some cases we can accommodate shorter lead-times (for example, transplant situations), but we cannot guarantee finding a pilot under those circumstances.
We will provide transportation to meet a variety of needs, but there must ordinarily be a financial need on the part of the recipient. Remember that our pilots are volunteers, and they are making a substantial financial contribution (sometimes as much as $1,000 for one flight) in addition to their time, so please be aware that the flight should be a charitable cause. There may also be some reason why private aircraft is the only option over commercial transportation, for example, if an individual lives in a rural area without easy access to commercial transportation, or if a person is highly susceptible to infection and cannot be exposed to crowds.
Medical Release from Physician
Passengers will be required to provide a medical release signed by a physician indicating that the passenger is satisfactory medical condition to take the flight.
