The Volunteer Flight Crew (VFC) program provides an opportunity to give back to others while experiencing the adventure of a lifetime. 

If you are a pilot who is interested in joining our expedition, you can become an expedition supporting pilot, click here.

Pilots – here’s an opportunity to fly with a unique and dedicated group of Canadian pilots this summer. You don’t have to be a super-pilot, or a wealthy one, to enter this one-off aviation experience into your logbook. We expect to form up squadrons of 25 or more aircraft for many portions of this grand flying expedition.

Join for one leg – or many legs – or all of them.

There will be three aircraft categories which are determined by cruise speeds.

  1. 90 – 120 knots
  2. 120 – 150 knots
  3. 150+ knots

The expedition supporting pilots will:

Fly all of or part of the expedition in support of patients in need (between 200 and 3,000 nm).

  • Challenge themselves to raise a minimum of $1 per nautical mile flown, or more, with a minimum of $1,000 raised.
  • Cover their own accommodation, meals and flight expenses (note: some flight costs will be discounted along the way).

How it works:

Hope Air will set up a customized fundraising page for each pilot on the Hope Air website.

  • Funds raised can include a combination of their own donations, donations raised from family, friends, colleagues, and corporate sponsors.
  • All donations receive a charitable donation receipt.
  •  $1,000 provides a return flight for a child and a parent.
