The principal objective in any flight is safety.

If you love to fly, have access to an airplane and can take an occasional day off to make a difference in a child or adult’s life, Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic has an opportunity for you! Although there is no monetary payment, it is hard to place a value on the personal satisfaction you’ll receive by getting involved in charitable aviation. Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic matches passengers with pilots who generously donate their time, aircraft and fuel at no cost.
Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic pilots give because they care and want to help those who have a genuine financial and urgent need. Volunteer pilots are matched with missions originating in or linking through the District of Columbia, Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. If travel outside the Mid-Atlantic region is required, Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic coordinates the mission with other members of the Air Charity Network linking two or more flights to help passengers reach their destination.
Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic does not certify either the pilots or the aircraft we arrange. This is the responsibility of the Federal Aviation Administration. Once we coordinate a mission, the pilot in command is responsible for all final details regarding the flight. If, for any reason the pilot and/or passenger is not comfortable with the match, they may contact our office, and we will try to suggest an alternative.
If you would like to become an Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic volunteer pilot, please phone our toll free number, 1-800-296-3797 to request a registration packet. Alternatively, you may click to fill out the Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic Volunteer Pilot Application online.
Please feel free to contact Dannie Ducksworth, Director of Program Operations, to discuss any questions you may have which are not answered on this site. To help answer your questions, she can also put you in touch with other pilots who are benefiting from their involvement in Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic.
