Why We Fly
Every Flight Will Change a Life
Hundreds of miles often separate our combat injured veterans from the care they need and the families that support them. Veterans Airlift Command is a nonprofit organization with a single mission: Give our veterans and their families a lift—at no cost. Because every flight will change a life.
VAC’s network of volunteer pilots, aircraft owners, sponsors, and donors answer that call for our veterans when they need us most. Together, we lift them up.
