On my most recent trip home to see my family I had two pilots fly me. They were both very help full and made going home very positive!

I often have anxiety with almost anything but with the help of Lisa at air lift command and the two pilots keeping me informed of all aspects of the flight
I had great time.

Thank you Lisa and both pilots it gave my life a real boost and My family and I cannot thank you enough. (Review entered by GreatNonprofits staff member on behalf of reviewer)

Veterans Airlift Command made my first experience a wonderful experience. My friends and family threw me a magnificent benefit in January and I believed I wouldn’t be able to attend but my pass to go was cleared from the hospital at the last minute. Within days I was set up with a personal jet, with the crew, and mechanic to go with it. The pilot called me on my cell phone and left every detail up to me. I chose which airports I wanted to leave from and arrive to. That was great, as I chose a small town airstrip and didn’t have to drive forty five minutes from Chicago to get home after arrival. The crew was hands down the best I ever had. They treated me as if I was a “Rock Star” the entire trip, with the pilot greeting me at my vehicle and returning me to the same place to say goodbye on the return trip. Times and number of passengers were totally up to my discretion, as at one time they were willing to send out two planes and crews to accommodate my wishes. I must have called the pilot four different times making changes to absolutely no problems at all. The flight attendant also called me the day before asking me what we would like to eat during our flight. She also decorated the plane with red white and blue streamers for American support, I absolutely loved that.
I was able to personally thank the owner of the corporation and also arrived with small tokens of appreciation for the crew and owner before the flight, as that was a justly thing to do. Lastly, I was told from the pilot (told from his boss,) that: “they would be offended if I flew commercial airlines and didn’t use them again.” I’m sold on that as I am soon to contact Veterans Airlift Command again very soon.

As VP for Operation Never Forgotten, www.operationneverforgotten.org and Operation SAS, www.operationsas.org, we cannot thank Veterans Airlift Command (VAC) enough for their support of our Big Sky Montana event for wounded Iraq and Afghanistan War Veterans. Our budget did not allow us to bring 6 more wounded troopers from Oregon to Bozeman Montana to attend the event. I contacted VAC and in a couple days they had flight arrangements from three different Oregon locations to Big Sky. The 6 troopers had a great lifetime experience at Operation SAS due to the support of VAC. Thank you very much.

As VP and logistics person for Operation SAS, the support of VAC was critical for us to bring as many troopers as we could to the event.

I would change nothing. Every person I contacted from the coordinator to the pilots were all so very congenial, helpful and support of our troopers. Great, great folks for sure.

My son and I have used VAC twice for short notice flights to a military hospital in TX. Both times have been wonderful experiences - from start to finish. From Lisa in the office, to Sara our hostess, to Chip our pilot - I have been so impressed! And so thankful!

VAC ROCKS!!!!!

Veterans airlift command is a god send to veterans that have been injured in the line of duty and now are in medical treatment facilities hundreds of miles from their homes, for myself this realates I've been receiving care for injuries recieved while serving in afghanistan.
without this
service and the Support of the Pilots Brad Niehauser, Brian Giem, and Charles Watson I would have not been able to travel to see my family, however with the support of Veterans airlift command and these wonderful pilots I was able to recieve two round trips home for the holidays and to everyone at Veterans Airlift command I salute you for your service!!!!

What a great Command! I was fortunate enough to be able to use this service twice. Both times I was traveling home for the holidays. It was an easy process to request a flight. The staff and pilots are extremely kind, courtesy, and professional. Words can not express the gratitude and thanks my family and I have.

I'm a fairly new pilot for the Veteran's Airlift Command. It's obvious that VAC is efficient, well organized, and very committed to their mission. I like transporting military people and family members to places that are not well-served by airlines - where the travel day would be long and tedious with multiple connections. We can fly directly between small conveniently located airports, giving wounded warriors a fast fun trip rather than a day of airport misery.
