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.

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!

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.

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.
