96,000+ missions and counting
Angel Flight West has been flying people in need for over forty years throughout the western United States. In total, they have arranged for more than 96,000 missions. Angel Flight West is a volunteer-driven organization that arranges non-emergency air transportation for children and adults with severe medical conditions.
International Jet was happy to partner with Angel Flight West at the end of 2022. The donation from International Jet—about $5,000 per hour and up to ten hours of flight time—supports all expenses related to flight missions such as fuel, flight time, airplane and a crew, consisting of two members from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and 135 qualified pilots. The Learjet 55 is reaching new heights flying 500 mph to help patients in need.
Patients, family members, staff, and supporters of the missions were given the chance to personally sign their names on the side of the airplane, "making this a truly unforgettable experience for all involved," said Angel Flight West.
