Who We Fly

We fly fully ambulatory cancer patients to and from treatment centers on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.  We also fly children with non-communicable illnesses when accompanied by a parent or guardian. As our aircraft are small, passengers must be able to climb onto the wing of the plane and then down into the cockpit with little or no assistance. We DO NOT provide flights for any person who is wheelchair dependent, has a communicable illness or who requires medical assistance in flight. Passengers must limit the amount/weight of their luggage and are asked to use soft “duffle like” bags. In most cases walkers and stroller will not fit into our planes. Passengers must wear closed-toe shoes (no sandals). Ladies are requested to wear pants.

COMMUNITY – COMPASSION – COMMITMENT

Our story begins with a meeting between our founder and Chuck Lovallo, whose son survived leukemia …​

The Honourable Iona Campagnola

Lt. Gov. of BC and First Honorary Patron of Angel Flight

“Dear Jeff Morris:

Thank you for sending the really heart-warming story of the little girl and her Mother from Powell River. Yours is such a compassionate and humane cause that I think the Angel's wings belong to you and your fellow Pilots. We can only trust that the advances in care and treatment are sufficient to keep these young people in a positive 'flight path' toward fully restored lives.

You provide a 'winning' service and I know in doing so, each one of you is more than rewarded through the gratitude of those you serve and the sense that our society is the better for having people in it like you and your comrades who are freely willing to share your expertise in their support.”

Good wishes,
Iona C.

“Dear Jeff, Thank you for all your hard work in coordinating the Angel Flights for me and your ability with people. My many thanks to the volunteer pilots and their planes. To say I enjoyed each and every flight doesn’t begin to express my delight at take-offs and landings. Flying over beautiful country and the wonderful attitude of the pilots. What an incredible service that is provided for people like me. Thank you again you wonderful people.”

Fay

“Dear Jeff Morris, pilots, volunteers and planes of Angel Flight, As a man battling cancer I can truly attest to the stress-relieving benefits, along with the sheer joy Angel Flight service provides. Not to have to endure the debilitating side-effects of chemotherapy treatment and drugs on a long stressful ferry ride home, to exemplify. What you guys do is powerful, outstanding, above and beyond and exemplary of real compassion and goodwill. You guys have been angels and the light in my life through some dark, harsh times and you’ve got the wings to prove it! My gratitude is beyond words. For what you do for me and other cancer patients, my heartfelt thanks guys. As I said to one of the pilots.....”You know the only good thing about cancer...The free flights between Victoria and Vancouver.”

ROB

“Dear Jeff, My family and I can never thank you and your pilots enough for the wonderful weekends we have been able to spend together because of Angel Flight and all the time given to make it possible. There are not enough “thank you’s”

PAT

“Dear Jeff, Once again I would like to tender my thanks to you and Angel Flight for the service you provided me for the last several weeks. It was quite an eye opener for me to learn that there are so many people from the flying fraternity who are prepared to give up their time to help others. Please convey my thanks to those who flew me when you see them. Best wishes.”

RAMSAY

“To Jeff and all the pilots, volunteers, donors and sponsors of Angel Flight. My deepest gratitude and warmest appreciation for all you did over the past months. Your help allowed me to come home from treatment each weekend. You may never really know how very much this contributed to not only my peace of mind, but my entire healing journey. I will always hold you in my heart.”
