There are thousands of sick children across the nation in need of transplants or medical services who are restricted from public flying due to scheduling conflicts, infection control or other restrictions, such as oxygen tanks. This is where flying services, such as Wings Flights of Hope step in to help.
Wings is a free service offered to anyone in need of transportation for medical or humanitarian purposes. They mainly offer flights to sick children, but also serve our military. Not only do they provide free flights to wounded military veterans, but their families as well.
According to their website, here is their mission:
The mission of Wings Flights of Hope Inc. is to help people in need of free air transportation for medical and humanitarian purposes. Basically helping anyone, anytime, anyplace. At Wings we do not want transportation to stand in the way of a patient receiving the best possible treatment available. With this purpose in mind, our volunteer pilots enjoy giving the gift of hope to so many passengers, and we are honored to be able to give someone a lift when they are down
