What We Do

Angel Flight East (AFE) is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the community by facilitating free air transportation for children and adults with medical conditions who need to get to treatment far from home.

AFE serves the Northeastern region of the United States, and for destinations beyond our reach, we link with other volunteer pilot organizations. Anyone who requests a flight must be medically stable, able to board an aircraft, and fly in a small non-pressurized aircraft. Volunteer pilots use their own aircraft to fly patients to their destinations. These men and women pay for all expenses for each mission they fly. Most AFE patients require air transportation numerous times over several years for treatment of and follow-up for their conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Burn Treatment
  • Chemotherapy
  • Eye Conditions
  • Specialized care for chronic congenital conditions or rare diseases
  • Much more!
