"Supporting the Nationwide Community of  Charitable Aviators"


The Air Care Alliance is a nationwide league of humanitarian flying organizations dedicated to community service. Our web site will introduce you to us and to all the groups we list whose activities involve public benefit flying for health care, patient transport, and other missions of public service. Then, should you wish to volunteer or you need help with patient transport or other missions you will be able to contact groups in your area.

MISSION STATEMENT:    "The Air Care Alliance promotes, supports, and represents public benefit flying through communication and cooperation among organizations facilitating flights for health , compassion, and community service."


Using their own time and general aviation aircraft, pilot volunteers from the many public benefit flying organizations help hundreds of people each month. They and many other nonflying volunteers transport needy patients to facilities where they are able to receive medical attention they might otherwise have to do without. Many groups also play a significant role providing disaster and emergency relief or perform other community service missions benefiting the public.

However, do note that these groups do NOT fly patients or supplies when insurance or other funds can provide commercial transport via air ambulance, charter, or airline. Their   volunteers fly only when financial need or other special circumstances mean a compelling human need would go unfulfilled.

Public benefit flying organizations utilize the unique capabilities of General Aviation aircraft to lend a hand whenever rapid and safe air transportation is needed to make health care accessible, save lives, or otherwise serve the public. Individual organizations with this mission have been in existence for decades, but in 1990 the need to share resources and coordinate efforts became clear. At that time the first national conference of public benefit flying organizations was organized by our founder Bill Worden at the headquarters of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Thus was born the Air Care Alliance.

Please investigate the information on our web site and on the many other sites we list.  You will discover the rich world of public benefit flying and learn about the generous people who use their skills and resources to help others. 

Information for all known groups can be found by visiting our web site listings at or by calling our help line 1 888-260-9707
