Dedicated To Helping Financially Needy Patients With Free Medical Air Transportation AFMAof America

If you love to fly, have access to an airplane and can take an occasional day off to make a difference in a child or adult’s life, Airlift Hope of America has an opportunity for you! Although there is no monetary payment, it is hard to place a value on the personal satisfaction you’ll receive by getting involved in charitable aviation. Airlift Hope of America matches passengers with pilots who generously donate their time, aircraft and fuel at no cost.

Airlift Hope of America pilots give because they care and want to help those who have a genuine financial and urgent need. Volunteer pilots are matched with missions originating in or linking through North Carolina and Tennessee. If travel outside the Mid-Atlantic region is required, Airlift Hope of America coordinates the mission with other volunteer pilot organizations linking two or more flights to help passengers reach their destination.

Airlift Hope of America does not certify either the pilots or the aircraft we arrange. This is the responsibility of the Federal Aviation Administration. Once we coordinate a mission, the pilot in command is responsible for all final details regarding the flight. If, for any reason the pilot and/or passenger is not comfortable with the match, they may contact our office, and we will try to suggest an alternative.

If you would like to become an Airlift Hope of America volunteer pilot, please phone our toll free number, 1-800-296-3797 to request a registration packet. Alternatively, you may click below and receive a copy of the Airlift Hope of America Volunteer Pilot Application in PDF format.
