About Angel Flight
Angel Flight Oklahoma was created by a group of pilots who believe in the benefit of volunteering. We strive to keep all aspects of the organization volunteer. We are a non-profit charitable organization of pilots, volunteers, and friends. We will arrange free air transportation for any legitimate, charitable, medically related need. This service is available to individuals, and health care organizations. We will also arrange transportation of those people who are financially distressed, or who are in a time-critical, non-emergency situation due to their medical condition.
Angel Flight Oklahoma primarily serves patients needing transportation to or from the heartland region, including the states of Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, and Kansas. As members of the Air Care Alliance, a group of organizations providing similar services throughout the United States, Angel Flight Oklahoma can arrange transportation for patients on longer flights to other parts of the country outside of the heartland region. Angel Flight Oklahoma has also flown blood products for the Oklahoma Blood Institute and Red Cross in emergency situations. Our Patients are usually traveling for surgery, chemotherapy, dialysis, and other treatments. A typical flight may carry patients requiring treatment at M.D. Anderson in Houston or the Shriner Hospital in Galveston, TX.
Angel Flight Oklahoma is financially supported primarily by our pilots who fly the missions (by donating the use of their airplanes and operating expenses) and by contributions from individuals, service clubs, social and religious groups and corporations. We receive no financial aid from any government entity. There is never a fee of any kind, either to the patient or the health care provider for an Angel Flight. The costs are paid by the volunteer pilots.
