Angel Flight West Volunteer Application

Volunteer Pilots Needed

    Use your general aviation skills to help people in need. Angel Flight West arranges free air transportation for medical care, special needs camps, and other compelling human needs. Many people cannot reach needed care because of the cost, or they are too ill to fly commercially or drive long distances. Join our special volunteers in this unique community service.
  • The most meaningful flights you will ever fly! Thousands of passengers need your help.
  • Join together with this great family of compassionate pilots.
  • Take advantage of discounts and waived fees when flying with AFW.


1. Do you live or fly in the 13 western states?*

Angel Flight West serves Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. If you live or fly in these areas, we encourage you to join. For opportunities in other areas visit Air Care Alliance

2. Are you a pilot?*

We require a minimum of 250 hours as PIC or a commercial license in order to become a Command Pilot. However, we encourage you to join since there are many volunteer opportunites for you while you build your hours.
We encourage you to join even as a student pilot since there are many volunteer opportunites for you while you build your hours.
One of the best ways to help us is to join Angel Flight West as a non-pilot volunteer. There are a number of ways you can contribute other than flying. We encourage non-pilots to join.

3. Do you own, rent or otherwise have access to an airplane?*

Many of our Command Pilots rent aircraft, or have access to an aircraft through a friend.
