We are very excited to announce plans for a third Flight Mission in 2017.
On September 16, 2017 we will be providing 50 Central Florida area Honored Veterans with their own Honor Flight – at no cost to them whatsoever.
Watch for updates and additional information here!
We are excited to have a second spring 2017 flight mission to our nation’s capital planned for Saturday June 3rd. The very best way to share our mission with others is by word of mouth. We are giving top priority to WWll Veterans on our 2017 flights, so if you know one that would like to view and reflect at their memorials in Washington DC at no cost to them, direct them to our website or call us at (407) 203-7010 for more information. Time is running our for us to honor the members of our greatest generation as we are losing them at the rate of 366 each and every day.
Family members, friends and even total strangers can play a critical role on Honor Flight Missions by accompanying one of our Hero’s as their personal Honor Flight Guardian. Honor Flight Guardians are Donors who cover their own cost to travel on a Flight Mission and donate their time to meet and accompany our Honorees on their Honor Flight. Nothing could be more rewarding than to be with our Honored Vets and share the stories of their service and possibly the closure and release that many of our Heroes experience. As a Guardian, you will have the first hand opportunity to assure your assigned Veteran has a day full of Honor and Tribute recognizing their service and sacrifice to our Country.
We cannot complete our mission without the generous support of the public.

“We can’t all be heroes because someone has to stand on the curb and clap as they go by”
We have scheduled the first Honor Flight Central Florida Flight Mission for the spring of 2017 on Saturday, May 6th. Our hub’s plans have us taking 24 Honored Veterans from the Central Florida community to the Nation’s Capital to view and reflect at the memorials built in their honor. If you are a WWll or Korea War Veteran OR if you know a WWll or Korea War Veteran who would like to be considered as an Honoree for this flight, we need your application to begin the process of completing our Honoree list. If you are interested in a once in a lifetime opportunity to accompany one of our esteemed Honorees and members of our Greatest Generation who served and sacrificed for us, we will need your Guardian application and a donation to cover your cost soon if you are to be considered. We give priority to terminally ill Veterans of any era, WWll Veterans, then Korea War Veterans in that order.

“We can’t all be heroes, some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by”
October 22, 2016 – Orlando, FL
We are proud to provide some details about our pending Honor Flight Central Florida Mission #17 to our Nation’s Capital. We are very pleased to be providing an Honor Flight for 47 Florida Senior Veterans who deserve our thanks for serving our Country during WWll, Korea and Vietnam. Veterans of the Army, Army Air Corps, Army Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force will be traveling with us on their Honor Flight to view and reflect at the memorials built to Honor them.
Our oldest Honoree served the Nation in WWll and is 97 years old and is one of twenty Honorees who are members of our “Greatest Generation”. We are also pleased to be Honoring two women who both proudly served in the U.S. Navy – a 92 year old Florida resident who did so in WWll, and another who served throughout the Korea, Vietnam and the Cold War eras.
We will be returning from the Capital at a scheduled time of 9:30PM via Southwest Airlines Flight#3575 from BWI Airport. We hope that the public can play an important role in our Honoree’s day by assembling in Orlando Airport Terminal A at 10PM (by Starbucks) to greet our flight and show their personal appreciation for those who defended this Nation at pivotal moments in our history. Rarely will you have the opportunity to find this many local senior heroes in one place at one time, so we encourage all to show their personal appreciation and bring family and friends along with signs and flags, to give them the welcome home they deserve and never got following their service. Please check with Southwest Airlines for our on time arrival before heading to the airport and remember:
“We can’t all be heroes, because some of us have to stand on the curb and clap when they go by”
Honor Flight Central Florida is excited to have begun the process of contacting Veterans that will travel with us as Honorees on their own Honor Flight Mission. We will be traveling with about 50 Honorees who will be provided their own Honor Flight at no cost to them, and allow for them to view and reflect at their memorials in Washington, DC. Each Honoree Veteran will be accompanied by an Honor Flight Guardian – a family member or friend, or a member of the public, who donates their time to accompany one of our heroes and cover their own trip cost for this amazing privilege. Guardians play a key role in supporting our Honorees during their very special day and frequently hear stories about our Honoree’s service to their country that may have never been shared before. We have opportunities for members of the public to join us on our October 22 Honor Flight and would be pleased to have you join us in paying tribute to our most senior Veterans. Nothing else you can do in support of our honored Veterans will be more meaningful and have more personal impact. To join us and be paired with an Honoree, we need to hear from you as seats are filling up. A link to applications for Guardians can be found here on our website on the main screen header. E-Mail us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (407) 203-7010.
