Medical Air Transportation – Patient Transport Security Protocol

It continues to be the intent of Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic to maintain the safety and security of passengers and pilots.

With FAA’s focused attention on General Aviation security measures, the following procedures contained in this protocol are designed specifically to protect the pilots, passengers and ground personnel involved directly or indirectly with all Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic flights and are in accordance with the National Policy on Homeland Defense. As you know, much of our contact with the patients is via phone. You are our eyes and ears and we rely on you to use your best judgment in regard to these matters.

  1. Each pilot of an Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic flight may check the passenger ID to assure the ID matches the passenger flying as identified on the flight setup.
  2. All authorized adult passengers, upon request, shall present the Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic pilot with his/her Government issued photo identification* (ID) PRIOR to boarding the aircraft.
