3. Mercy Medical Angels Pilots Are Safe

Volunteer Pilots associated with Mercy Medical Angels have provided services to thousands of non-critically ill people for more than 30 years with a spotless safety record. The principal objective in any flight is safety. Each pilot will make his/her own “go/no go” decision, without pressure from Mercy Medical Angels, as he/she is the best judge as to the status of the aircraft, weather, his/her physical condition and training and proficiency.

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, Mercy Medical Angels 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. Mercy Medical Angels matches passengers with pilots who generously donate their time, aircraft and fuel at no cost.

Mercy Medical Angels 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, Mercy Medical Angels coordinates the mission with other members of the Air Charity Network linking two or more flights to help passengers reach their destination.

Mercy Medical Angels 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 Mercy Medical Angels 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.
