Honor Flight Southern Arizona

Honoring the veterans of: Pima, Cochise, Graham, Greenlee, Pinal, Santa Cruz, Southern Gila, Yuma Counties and the Tohono O’odham Nation

Honor Flight Southern Arizona is deeply committed to paying tribute to our nation’s heroes from pivotal moments in history. To be eligible for an Honor Flight, a veteran must be a Southern Arizona RESIDENT who served Honorably on Active Duty, in the Reserves, National Guard or Inactive Class 3 Reserves (IRR) anywhere on Earth, in any branch of service PRIOR to 07 May 1975. A veteran who meets these qualifications is eligible to be honored with an unparalleled journey to witness their respective national memorials in Washington DC.

These aren’t just Memorials; they’re testaments to the valor and courage of those who answered the call when it was needed most. Every one of these brave men and women put their lives on the line, stepping forward during the gravest global crises, ensuring America’s continued freedom and shielding us from foreign threats. As time marches on, it becomes even more crucial for us, the beneficiaries of their bravery, to keep the flame of their legacy alive. It’s not just our responsibility but our profound duty to ensure their stories, struggles, and sacrifices aren’t relegated to the pages of history books but are celebrated and remembered. We owe them our deepest gratitude for the foundation they laid and the sacrifices they made years ago. Let us come together, hand in hand, to honor them with this memorable journey that serves as a small token of our nation’s immense appreciation.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Honor Flight Southern Arizona operates solely through the generosity and support of our community. Every aspect of our mission is completely funded by donations and various fundraising efforts, ensuring that there is absolutely no cost to the veterans we honor. This is our way of showing our deepest respect and gratitude to those who have served. Furthermore, our organization is driven by the spirit of volunteerism, with each member of our board and staff contributing their time and effort without compensation. This all-volunteer ethos reflects our unwavering commitment to honoring our veterans, demonstrating that every penny raised goes directly towards creating these unforgettable experiences for our nation’s heroes. Together, we forge a strong bond of gratitude and remembrance, upholding the legacy of those who have selflessly served our country.

No. Spouses of veterans do not go on trips unless the spouse is also a veteran. We simply do not have the resources or available space to include and care for non-veteran spouses during these trips. Any seat not filled by a veteran is filled by the guardian volunteer who, for the veteran’s safety, assists the veteran with handling luggage, wheelchairs, and any other need the veteran may have.

Sadly, the answer is “no”. Again, we simply do not have the resources or seating available to transport all the veterans who are presently on our Arizona waiting list. Adding spouses and widows to our trips is not allowable under our policies.

There is no cost for veterans. You do not need to bring any money, unless you intend to purchase souvenirs.

The current cost is $1200.00 to the guardian. This price includes round trip airfare, lodging, meals and ground transportation to all the memorials.

Yes. However, there are guidelines for being considered – see Guardians for more details. Selection of guardians and how many guardians will be needed, is the sole responsibility of the Hub Coordinator. That decision is based upon many factors, such as: The number of disabled veterans scheduled to go. The number of vets that will need physical assistance in getting around. The guardian applicants who are most qualified: Medically trained, veterans, active duty military personnel and volunteers who have previously participated in a flight are given top priority and serve as leadership members. The applicants physically capable of assisting in the lifting of veterans are also a top priority. The number of seats we have available on the bus

Yes. Honor Flight Southern Arizona gratefully accepts all donations! However, veterans cannot pay for themselves and any veteran on our waiting list who wishes to make a donation may do so only after the completion of his or her Honor Flight. This is our way of saying “Thank You”!

Honor Flight Southern Arizona receives no national or government assistance. 100% of our funding comes from private donations – individuals, community groups, and organizations who recognize the great accomplishments and sacrifices of our war veterans and who understand our veterans’ wanting to see their memorial before it is too late to travel. Significant contributors are fraternal organizations like the local chapters and posts of the American Legion, VFW, Lions, Elks, and various Rotary clubs in southern Arizona. They play a very big part of our fundraising.

The Arizona and Southern Arizona hubs are two separate entities. Each hub keeps its own waiting list and flies on its own schedule. Honor Flight SAZ primarily serves WWII veterans in Tucson and all of southern Arizona. Honor Flight AZ serves the central and northern part of the state. If you are unsure about which hub to apply to, please email [email protected]

Due to the age of our veterans and the extensive walking required at many sites (including the airports), we supply wheelchairs to those that may need them. We also have many volunteers (guardians) available to help push them. Our buses are equipped with motorized wheelchair lifts, if needed. Oxygen usage also does not automatically eliminate a veteran from joining us on our trips. Please let us know if you require oxygen as the requirements of the airlines have changed and some paperwork and special equipment is required to board an aircraft. We can also assist in making oxygen available while touring, and in your hotel room.

Sadly, no. Due to our large population of veterans here in Arizona, we are unable to expand our list to include veterans from other states at this time. Contact our national Honor Flight Network office and they will arrange to fly veterans from states without a hub.

Yes. We would be glad to furnish a speaker. Please send your request to [email protected] and we will make sure you have a speaker at your event.
