Across our country we lose 1,100 - 1,300 World War II Vets a day! The average age waiting to go from Rochester is 88.

Rochester, New York is one of 100 established 'hubs' in the national Honor Flight Network. We are not-for-profit, and created to honor America's veterans for their sacrifices.

Honoring Veterans

“We fly our heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect together at their memorials.”

Honor Flight is free to all WWII and Korean veterans and to veterans from any era who suffer a terminal illness. Our goal is to take every veteran who otherwise would not or could not go, and who wants to fly.

Veterans typically fly in the order their applications are received. Medical priorities are the exception. WWII veterans will fly before Korean War veterans because of the health issues many of our aging WWII veterans face. Korean War veterans will begin to be assigned to missions in the Spring of 2014.

The flying season is April to November. With hundreds of local veterans currently in line, applications are now being accepted the Fall of 2014 and for the 2015 flying season. The sooner Veterans apply, the sooner they fly.

Unfortunately veterans cannot choose what flight they will travel on due to medical and logistic issues associated with the flight process. We also encourage veterans from the Syracuse and Buffalo area's to visit and register with their local Honor Flight hubs before registering with Rochester Honor Flight.
