I have been working with Angel Flight Soars, Inc. for ten years, and nothing is of greater importance to Angel Flight Soars than getting people where they need to go and doing so as few hiccups as possible. Angel Flight Soars far exceeds other charitable aviation organizations when it comes to providing smooth and stress-free transportation for patients and families.

I have been with the administration of DeKalb Peachtree Airport, the home of Angel Flight Soars, for 10 years and can attest that Angel Flight is a remarkable organization. Observing Angel Flight’s daily transportation of people in need of medical care is impressive; watching their response to Hurricane Katrina was awe-inspiring. Once the true devastation of Katrina was realized Angel Flight quickly, and with their usual efficiency moved into action. They acquired additional hangar space, bought, and collected tens of thousands of dollars of medical supplies and other necessities, and arraigned hundreds of delivery flights to rural areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. It was an incredible well choreographed display of a group volunteer effort that did immeasurable good during a time of national need.
