Guardian payments:
Guardians will be contacted by HFLI when they have been scheduled for an upcoming flight.

Guardians DO NOT need to submit the $400 donation until it is your turn to fly

Our volunteer "Guardians" must also complete an application,  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.

PLEASE READ
 

  • In order to have more seats available for veterans on each flight, there are a limited number of seats for Guardians. These seats are filled by all available and eligible Family Guardians first. If you and your veteran would like to have a Family Guardian considered for inclusion on the trip, you are encouraged to fill out an application. Please note: spouses are not eligible to serve as Family Guardians.

  • Every Guardian must be between 18-66 years of age, or be in peak physical condition and able to handle the rigors of the day (i.e. pushing a wheelchair, extensive walking, bad weather)

  • In order to serve as many veterans as possible, we ask Family Guardians to pay a portion of the cost of their participation in the day’s events. That cost is $400

GUARDIAN APPLICATION

Guardians are essential to the success of the Honor Flight Program. Without these volunteers we would not be able to carry out the dreams of so many WWII,  Korean and Vietnam War veterans, enabling them to see the memorials built in their honor.

Guardian training is required. A flexible schedule will be created so each guardian can make one of the several sessions. Specific information will be shared when training session are set.

From the moment the veterans are in our hands until we return them to their loved ones at the end of the day, guardians will be asked to treat these heroes as if they are family and ensure that every veteran has a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience.


Guardians are volunteers. Guardians pay $400 each for the privilege of escorting our American heroes.
