Earth Angels Needed

Don’t have a pilot’s license but still want to help transport people in need to medical care, specialty camps, and other essential services? Maybe you’re meant to be an Earth Angel.

Where Does AFW Need New Drivers?

Angel Flight West proudly serves 12 Western states by helping patients travel long distances between their homes and medical care. Typically, our patients fly from rural towns to the following metropolitan areas to access treatment. We need Earth Angels who are willing to drive between local airports and healthcare facilities in and around these cities:

Denver, CO
Los Angeles Basin, CA
Phoenix, AZ
Portland, OR
Salt Lake City, UT
San Diego, CA
San Francisco Bay Area
Seattle, WA
Spokane, WA

From time to time, we may have needs for Earth Angels in other areas throughout the West. However, these requests are far less. 

Hundreds of passengers need your help

Angel Flight West coordinates more than 10 missions every day. Though we provide air transportation at no cost, many potential passengers still decline our free services because they cannot afford a cab or ride sharing service from the airport to their treatment facility or lodging.

We created the Earth Angels program to remove that transportation barrier for those who need medical care — and to provide a complete, simple, no-cost service to our passengers.

Participate at whatever level works best for you and your schedule. When, where, and how often you drive are all up to you. Just sign up online to help us out, and when you see a trip you’d like to make, claim it!
