A few words about us

Angel Flight is approved by both Transport Canada and the Canadian Transportation Agency, and we strictly adhere to current aviation regulations. We are an entirely volunteer-led organization with no paid employees. Our pilots are experienced volunteers who generously donate their time away from work and their families to provide our services.

Our aircraft are primarily small single-engine planes with four seats, including the pilot’s seat.

Each flight is planned to meet the individual requirements of the client, including their appointment times and the time needed to reach the treatment facility. We typically require a minimum of 72 hours to arrange your flight. However, please be aware that weather conditions, such as fog and high winds, can sometimes cause delays or prevent us from flying. Therefore, we kindly request that you have a backup plan to reach your appointment in case we are unable to fly. If such a situation arises, we will provide you with sufficient notice to make alternative arrangements. In most cases, we can arrange for volunteer drivers to pick you up in Vancouver and/or Victoria from Monday to Friday, but all other transportation remains the responsibility of the client.

In Victoria, our flights depart from the Victoria Flying Club at 101-1852 Canso Rd, North Saanich, while in Vancouver, we operate from the South Terminal at the Vancouver International Airport. Please refer to the “Where We Fly” section for information about the regional airports we serve.

To finalize your flight arrangements, please ensure that you complete the Request for Flight form and sign the required waiver. Our Client Services Manager, Ruth Ilg, will be available to assist you with these steps. Jeff Morris, CEO and President of Angel Flight, will make the final decisions regarding pilots, flight times, and flight conditions.
