Wings Flights of Hope is especially instrumental for transplant patients who may be on a strict deadline to receive organ transplants. Pilots for Wings Flights of Hope are on call 24/7 to ensure patients are able to get to medical facilities on time.

Many patients of Wings Flights of Hope have compromised immune systems, which oftentimes prevents them from being able to fly on commercial flights due to germs and scheduling.

The organization also supports the military, providing free flights to soldiers to get the medical attention they need and deserve, as well as providing free transportation to the families of wounded soldiers.

The mission of Wings Flights of Hope is simple: to help people in need. In the words of the organization, “we are honored to be able to give someone a lift when they are down.”
