Angel Flight East COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment and Vaccine Transport
Angel Flight East (AFE) will transport personal protective equipment (PPE) and COVID-19 vaccines to areas in need.
Since March 2020, AFE has scheduled 415 flights to 90 different medical facilities in 15 states to ensure healthcare workers have the critical PPE needed to fight COVID-19, including many rural healthcare facilities across the east coast. The volunteer pilot network is available to assist with vaccine distribution, if needed.
Requests may come from rural physicians, other health care professionals, and facilities that need assistance with PPE or vaccine transport.
AFE's travel footprint is Virginia to Ohio to Maine. Transport distances are 100 - 1,000 miles. For destinations beyond the northeastern U.S., AFE may be able to assist in making contact with other volunteer pilot organizations.
There is no charge for the services provided by AFE. Volunteer pilots use their own aircraft and cover all expenses for each mission they fly.
