Angel Flight West's volunteer pilots fly people to medical appointments at no cost to the passenger.

Transportation challenges create one of the most daunting barriers to healthcare—a barrier second only to the cost. Every day, Angel Flight West’s volunteer pilots fly people to their medical appointments at no cost to the passenger.

We’ve spent nearly four decades—and provided more than 90,000 flights—creating pathways to healthcare across the Western United States, arranging donated flights to people in need and providing them safe passage to and from medical care.

On the ground, Earth Angels drive passengers from the airport to the medical facility, also free of cost.

Though we’re best known for linking passengers to valuable medical resources, we also provide transportation for other humanitarian purposes, such as individuals and families escaping domestic violence, disaster relief, therapeutic programs for veterans, and children’s specialty camps.
