LifeLine Pilots coordinates non-emergency air transportation for passengers with medical or humanitarian needs far from home. There is never a cost to fly with us and no limit to the number of times a passenger can travel.
Flights are flown by LifeLine Pilots' team of volunteer pilots, who donate all expenses of the flight. Flights are coordinated to accommodate your medical appointment and the availability of the volunteer pilot. Your flight is just for you and your caregiver/companion.
