Our volunteer pilots cover the entire cost of the flight, which enables us to provide this transportation at no cost to the patients or passengers. Since 1991, our pilots have flown over 39,000 missions and have contributed over $110 million to this effort. Because of the generosity and commitment of our volunteer pilots, we believe that no one should be denied critical medical care solely due to the barrier of distance.
Angel Flight South Central conducts outreach with hospitals, doctor’s offices, social workers, and social service agencies to identify those who need our services the most. Some hospitals (like Houston’s MD Anderson Cancer Center) have integrated us into their admissions and social services departments to ensure availability to their clients.
Our mission coordination team connects passengers in need with pilots available to fly missions. For passengers who require travel beyond our primary service region (TX, AR, LA, NM, OK), our team coordinates with similar agencies across the nation. On the day of travel, the passenger meets the pilot at a local airport and is flown to an airport near their treatment facility.
