I have been a AFSC pilot since 1996. It is by far the most rewarding charitable experience I have had the priviledge of being involved. The satisfaction I get when I get to see the result of my controbution when flying a mission is as the MasterCard Commerical used to say "priceless." the controbution in terms of the cost of my time, plane and fuel are insignificant in comparrison to the satisfaction gained by helping a patient in need get to crucial treatment . Doing a mission givs me a great reason to hop in the plane, keep proficient while at the same time providing a good deed. I urge all pilots to do so instead of flying for a $100 hamburger. Getting there is truly half the cure.
Thank you for writing a review of Angel Flight South Central! We particularly like your comment about flying for a good deed instead of a $100 hamburger. We appreciate your dedication and support!
I flew my first Angel Flight this last week. It was a very rewarding experience. I feel very blessed to be able to volunteer for an organization like Angel Flight. The staff do an excellent job and are very organized at coordinating the missions. It was a great experience and I look forward to many more missions with Angel Flight!
We're really glad that you decided to join our organization, and we wish you many more great experiences on future missions. Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your first trip.
I joined Angel Flight South Central (AFSC) in 2004 as a tool to keep me proficient as a pilot. After flying my first mission it became a commitment. AFSC makes it easy for patients and pilots to schedule and it is the most rewarding flight that you will ever make. I have flown all walks of life for AFSC and at the end of the flight the smiles and joy from the patients make it all worth while. AFSC takes a very caring approach to helping the patients who need it most at a time they need it most. The lengths that the organization takes to help from the air to ground makes a personal hardship for the patients much easier.
We're happy to have you on our team! Thank you for the many years of helping patients get where they need to go.
I have been a member of Angel Flight South Central since September 2000. Being affiliated with this organization has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The pilots who volunteer to fly the patients are some of the most giving and concerned people I know. Being fortunate enough to help someone save their life doing something we love to do. It is a win win for all concerned.
Thanks for staying with us for so long! We wouldn't be able to help as many people as we do without dedicated pilots like yourself.
48 years ago I was a teenager living in North Texas. My mother, who had kidney cancer, was being treated in San Antonio. Because her treatments were M-W-F, and the difficulty in her traveling home for a weekend visit, my mother lived near the hospital in San Antonio for the 3 months she was undergoing treatment. She received excellent care and survived the cancer, but I will never forget the Thanksgiving our family had without our mother being present. I can not go back and thank those who did help our family, but being a part of the Angel Flight family certainly is a way that I can "pay the debt forward."
I am honored to tell people that I fly for Angel Flight. This organization provides more assistance to individuals who really need an aviation transportation option to get the treatment they need, all of which is provided to them at no cost to the patient. Every objective of this organization is focused on ways to provide better service to more patients who must travel to get the medical care that they need.
Thank you for sharing your story. Pilots like you, who care so much about the people you fly, are the reason this organization is so amazing.
I would give Angel Flight Inc 10 stars if there were 10 available!! My husband, John, is on the liver transplant list a Baylor Hospital. We have been flying from Santa Fe, N.M. to Dallas, Tx, for about 1.5 years, every 2-3 months. From day one, our Angel Flight flight has been the best part of this whole process. We are treated like royalty, by the caring administration staff, by the kind, highly skilled pilots, and by the wonderful ground transportation staff. We are humbled by the grace and kindness that we are shown. If we did not have Angel Flight, we would have to drive 12 hours each way for every appointment and for the surgery. That would be devastating, in so many ways!! I recently told one of our Angel Flight pilots that when I win the lottery, Angel Flight (South Central) will be the second to hear... with my church being the first to hear. I also told him that with the lottery money, I will buy a plane, learn to fly, and volunteer and an Angel Flight pilot!! We could not be more pleased with these services! God bless you ALL for being Angel Flight!!!
We appreciate your kind words and we're glad that you think so highly of our service! And, if you ever do win the lottery and become a pilot, we'd be excited to have you volunteer with Angel Flight.
Angel Flight has helped save my life. Being a young wife and mother, fighting stage 4 cancer is hard. Traveling from Alabama to Houston was almost out of the question until we learned about Angel Flight. They have helped get us out there, so I can get the life saving care that I need.
Then when we get there, they have someone waiting to pick us up.
Thank you Angel Flight for everything you do!
We're glad you found us and that we've been able to help get you the treatment that you need.
Angel Flight is a great organization and I am proud to say I am a volunteer. I have had a very personal connection to cancer patients and I do all I can to help them. Angel flight provides a much needed service and allows me to share my skills and passion for aviation in helping others. They are very organized and are truly selfless in their mission. I hold the organization in high regard and would personally recommend them.
We're so happy that you decided to volunteer with our organization. You make such in difference in people's lives, and we appreciate everything you do to help them.
