Honor Flight Long Island provides this one-day trip to all WWII, Korean and Vietnam War veterans at NO cost. Sometime in the future, HFLI will include other conflict veterans, but that time has not yet come. However, we do make an exception for any terminally ill veteran. This veteran, no matter when he/she served, is given our highest priority
Veterans must complete and submit an application to participate by clicking on the tab below. Veterans are then called on a first-come-first-served basis so we encourage all to submit an application. Veterans not able to participate on one flight remain on the list and are called for the next scheduled trip.
Our volunteer "Guardians" must also complete an application, by clicking on the tab below and must pay their own way, an expense of $400. Guardians escort the veterans on the aircraft, accompany them throughout the day and make sure our veterans have everything they need for a memorable experience.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free
human being with an independent will.
