OUR PILOTS

All Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic Pilots are licensed by the FAA and are instrument rated. They are dedicated volunteers who donate their time, skills, plane and fuel to provide free transportation for those in need. Our pilots continue to maintain a perfect safety record.

THE PLANES

AFMA pilots own or rent the planes used to fly flights. The planes range from 4 – 6 seat single engine planes to twin-engine pressurized cabin class aircraft. Every plane is subject to Annual Inspection as required by the FAA.

WHOM DO WE FLY?

AFMA is available to children or adult patients and an escort in need of transportation for medical evaluation, diagnosis or treatment. Patients must be ambulatory, which means they must be able to walk independently, enter and exit the plane with little or no assistance, and require no medical care (e.g., doctor or nurse) en route. Compassion requests are handled on a case-by-case basis. Financial income verification is required to approve request for a flight. Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic’s milage minimum limitation is 150 air miles (one-way) and maximum of 750 air miles (one-way). For information on charitable air transportation exceeding 1,000 miles, please see our Request Assistance page.
