Description

The Angel Flight East (AFE) a nonprofit organization of pilots and other volunteers, is dedicated to serving the community by providing free air transportation on private aircraft to individuals with medical needs who cannot afford or access commercial transportation to health care. Free air transportation may be provided to those whose medical problems make it necessary for them to travel for diagnosis or treatment at distant medical facilities. To qualify, patients must have limited resources, have a definite financial need that is verifiable, have a medical condition that makes it difficult if not impossible for them to use public transportation, be medically stable, and be able to fly in smaller aircraft. Patients may have a friend or family member accompany them. In some circumstances, patients may fly with a nurse and, with prior approval, oxygen. Angel Flight East will also fly blood, tissue, organs, and disaster relief supplies to meet urgent needs. Most Angel Flight East missions are between 300 to 600 nautical miles. Angel Flight serves Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and some parts of extreme southern Canada on a limited basis. However, Angel Flight East routinely links with other public benefit flying groups to achieve longer mission objectives.
