Taking Kindness To New Heights!
In 1999, Hope Air launched an innovative program with the goal of extending our flight services to communities not well covered by commercial airlines. The Volunteer Pilot Program (VPP) provides general aviation pilots with the opportunity to combine their passion for flying with their desire to help people in need.

Our Volunteer Pilots contribute more than just their aircraft and their skills as pilots: they also make a real monetary contribution to each VPP flight (tax deductible). In addition to the Volunteer Pilot’s donation, Hope Air experiences a cost for each passenger on a VPP flight of approximately $135. Please consider making a gift to support Hope Air’s Volunteer Pilot Program and the Clients our pilots help. You can make a donation here.
