VABC is proud to collaborate with Patient AirLift Services (PALS) to arrange FREE flights for patients and caregivers in need of medical diagnosis, treatment or follow-up. All patients must be medically stable, ambulatory and able to fly in a general aviation non-pressurized aircraft as verified by a Medical Release Form completed by your physician or social worker.
The network of volunteer pilots at PALS, donate their aircraft, time and pay for all expenses related to the flight. There is absolutely NO COST to the patient and caregiver for these flights! PALS pilots can fly anywhere in the Northeast or East Coast of the United States and for those flights that are outside of our service area we can link with our fellow volunteer flying organizations that are members of the Air Care Alliance or reach out to some of our friends in the airline industry.
