BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - The mission of Wings Flights of Hope Inc. is to help people in need of free air transportation for medical and humanitarian purposes.
Basically helping anyone, anytime, anyplace. At Wings we do not want transportation to stand in the way of a patient receiving the best possible treatment available. With this purpose in mind, our volunteer pilots enjoy giving the gift of hope to so many passengers, and we are honored to be able to give someone a lift when they are down.
Wings Flights of Hope is part of Wings Flights of Hope Inc. a non-profit 501(c)(3). The volunteer pilots benefit from the rewards of giving hope to so many people who normally would not have the opportunity!
Wings Flights of Hope is extremely instrumental for transplant patients because of the short window of opportunity to receive organ transplants. Without the pilots being on call 24/7 for these special missions, patients would not be able to get to the medical facilities on time. Many patients are in rural areas without access to large airports which limits the amount of possible flights. Wings Free Flights of Hope provides flights for people with compromised immune systems where many doctors will not allow access to commercial flights.
