Veteran aviation flights

  1. VAFis a non-profit organization (FAA Part 125) with the sole intent to provide outstanding support to the people in need. That have been injured in Combat<br />Our experience in commercial aviation, that we can supply the carepackages to family members, Christmas presents and food to our warriorsfamilies, better serve those in need on a quickly basis. We have chosen key equipment and locations to provide the same outstanding services of major commercial airline operators. We are not a Biblical Missions airlift, Simply veterans living by the creed of “Never leaving a Fallen Comrade” however our organization is based on faith, trust, and the desire to help our veterans. We are not limited to just veterans but also relief efforts in Haiti, South America and other in need places.<br />We are an organization built around a team. Everyone in our organization has the same vision. We are pilots, Veterans, mechanics, loaders, management, and the willing hand to reach out and help someone else out. Members of our team come from many different backgrounds. With specialties in many fields, our operating costs are low, and our operational aircraft displace a greener foot print on our planet.<br />
