Who We Are
Who is Angel Flight NE?
Angel Flight Northeast is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization that coordinates free air transportation for patients whose financial resources would not otherwise enable them to receive treatment or diagnosis, or who may live in rural areas without access to commercial airlines. Our organization is comprised of over 1,000 volunteer private pilots who combine our love of flying with the spirit of grassroots volunteerism by flying patients and their families to the critical health care they need. We provide air transportation in private aircraft by volunteer pilots so that children and adults may access life saving medical care free of charge. Our Earth Angels generously donate their time and vehicles to transport patients to and from the airport / medical facilities.
We are also a vital mode of transportation for organs, blood and for patients awaiting organ transplants. We also make compassion flights and provide air care wherever there is a compelling human need. Through our membership in Air Care Alliance, we can arrange flights throughout most of the country and Canada. Angel Flight Northeast flies extensively in the Northeast portion of the country.
Approximately 50% of our patients are children, generally suffering from severe burns or cancer.
