Volunteer Pilots Needed

Thank you for your interest in Angel Flight where you can use your general aviation skills to help people in need.  Angel Flight Oklahoma arranges free transportation to medical treatment in the country’s heartland for those people who cannot reach needed care because of the cost, or they are too ill to fly commercially or drive long distances. We would be honored to have you join our special volunteers in this unique community service.

Please note that there are several Public Benefit Flying Organizations across the US, including Angel Flight, Oklahoma.  If you volunteer on this site, your application will go to Angel Flight, Oklahoma. If you live outside of Oklahoma and the surrounding area, you may wish to apply to a Public Benefit Flying Organization near you; please check our locator page to locate a Public Benefit Flying Organization in your area.

By coordinating with other organizations, Angel Flight Oklahoma can arrange transportation for patients on longer flights to other parts of the country outside of the Heartland region. Angel Flight has also flown blood products for the Oklahoma Blood Institute and Red Cross in emergency situations. Our Patients are usually traveling for surgery, chemotherapy, dialysis, and other treatments. A typical flight may carry patients requiring treatment at M.D. Anderson in Houston or the Shriner Hospital in Galveston, TX.

Pilot Requirements

Angel Flight requires a pilot to have a current private pilot certificate and valid medical certificate, as well as be current and proficient in whatever airplane they fly. Because we want all missions to be completed safely, our pilots are in complete charge of the missions they fly. In accordance with Federal Aviation Administration regulations, the pilot is the final authority with respect to the conduct of each flight. The pilot is responsible for determining the safety of the proposed flight, as well as the fitness of the aircraft and his or her own proficiency.

  • Valid and current private (or higher) certificate, with class/type ratings and endorsements required for aircraft
  • Instrument rating
  • Valid & current class III or higher medical certificate
  • 250 hours pilot in command (PIC) experience
  • 25 hours make and model in singles, 75 hours make and model in turbines and twins
  • 50 hours as PIC in last 12 months (waived with a flight review or completion of a Wings phase in last 3 months)

Non-pilots and pilots who don’t meet our pilot requirements or affirmations are welcome to join and are encouraged to participate in volunteer activities.
