Awesome. Got us 2 flights on private planes from NC to TX to attend a funeral for a fallen soldier. Made things so less difficult than dealing with airlines. Funeral was painful enough, the flights the only bright spot.
How can you put to words what this nonprofit did for us? At our lowest moment, desperate to be able to say our last good-byes, give our final respects, and tell the family of our Fallen Brother how much we love them... Veterans Airlift Command stepped up without hesitation. We would not have been able to attend the funeral of our Fallen Brother had it not been for the true and pure patriotism of this nonprofit. All of the administrative staff as well as the pilots (Spike & Butch) were professional, personable, and respectful. THANK YOU for everything! You helped me bring closure at one of the most difficult times in my life!
I have used Veterans Airlift Command a few times now. Each time they delivered in spades! The logistics team was very prompt arranging flights to and from, and their pilots were professional and friendly. This organization is top notch, when their passengers are in a jamb and need to get to somewhere quick. That's not all they do; they also follow up and make sure you're ok after the flights. That shows an immense amount of sincerity and that they do truly care. Hats off to this wonderful organization!
I can't thank enough for the nonprofit every time I called it felt like they drop everything just to help me especially when I called him my brother he saved my life in Iraq and he lost to his demons and committed suside. I made one phone call and they help me with everything and more. Also do to my injuries from Iraq I couldn't get my wife pregnant so we had To go to NY to do IVF and they made it possible for me and my family to extend are tree and now my wife pregnant thank you so much. This nonprofit has changed so many live for the better and touch Theor hearts for ever Thank you for helping me give the greatest gift of all is a new life and a child for my wife.
Truly no word/words can describe how wonderful this organization and their people really are! When my husband flies they make him take his leg off and run test. I fly into a furry every time. VAC allows him to avoid such an embarrassing situation. I love them and their mission❤️
There's not one negative thing I can say about this company. There were there for us when we were turned down by others. All the pilots have been a phenomenal asset as well as the representatives for Veteran's Airlift Command, specifically Andrew Lourake. He is such a wonderful person and has made us forget at times why we are traveling and for just a few moments we are at peace.
Veterans Airlift Command is run and supported by "people that do." VAC flew me out of state for a surgical procedure and returned me home with no issues whatsoever. Obviously, the defining features are the pilots and aircraft owners, genuinely wonderful people that are driven to serve and contribute. It is an added bonus if you have an interest or even passing hobby in aviation, because the pilots/owners always have great stories, and the aircraft are beautiful. Being able to fly via general aviation also provides far more options and flexibility when it comes to when and where you travel. This is a great organization, and I hope veterans will be able to continue using it for a long time. I also highly recommend supporting this organization - VAC **serves veterans!!**
I recently had the amazing opportunity to fly with VAC and the experience from start to finish was exceptional!!! I truly hope the organization and pilots realize their positive and lasting impact they had on me and Issac, my service dog. From the moment we met our pilots, we felt like family! They were so understanding, caring, and supportive!!! They even had Mutt Muffs for Issac's ears! So Thoughtful :) So for us, flying with a commercial airline always presents so many challenges. Aside from being a below-knee amputee, I am legally blind and even though I have Issac to assist me, there is still always so much stress. I worry about our seating because Issac is 90 lbs and does not fit well in the limited area, even the bulkhead section. With my vision loss, direct flights work best as to avoid the confusion of trying to get to the connecting gate. Sadly, you can not depend on airport staff as we have missed flights before even with their help. There is always the embarrassing pat down and anxiety that comes along with that as well. With VAC, all of that anxiety completely goes away!!! Issac had plenty of room to stretch out and sleep. Having no stress is a tremendous comfort and alleviates the worry of any issues. Words really can not express the true emotions of what this experience meant to us and saying Thank You a million times just does not seem to do it justice. We feel so blessed to have had this honor! Thank You VAC and Pilots for your continued dedication and commitment!!! Warmest Regards, Leslie & Issac
All I can say is, wow! From the application to my return flight home Veterans Airlift Command (VAC) was engaged and available for all my questions and needs. I personally give this organization a 10 star rating.
With VAC I was treated like a fortune 500 CEO! Better yet, I am now part of the family.
I had the best experience this past weekend flying with VAC. My PTSD keeps me from traveling long distance by car. Commercial Airline is very stressful too with TSA, corwds and other passengers. I live in TX and my immediate family lives in IN. I have missed out on alot of family events in past years recoverying from 2 deployments to Iraq with symptoms alot of people experience and go through. I am so grateful to my pilot who took me. Feels so great that you folks care about me to get me home to see my relatives when I otherwise would not be able to.
