Rochester Airport Construction Notice

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

Dear Honor Flight Rochester Fans,

Your participation at the Honor Flight Rochester homecomings have made us the epitome of homecomings in the Honor Flight Network. But with the construction at the Greater Rochester International Airport, the spaces assigned for HFR uses will be different. Outside the upper driveway is closed. Inside HFR will use less of the upper concourse and more of the lower concourse. Familiarity with old habits is gone.

Please be understanding that the veterans’ family members only have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to welcome home their loved one. Let’s do our best to make sure family members will enjoy this most memorable afternoon with their veteran.

Thank you for your consideration and thanks for your continued support.

Tom Hope, Rest In Peace

Monday, November 6th, 2017

Honor Flight Rochester (HFR) is saddened by the loss of one of its first and biggest supporters, Tom Hope, but his memory will remain with us forever. Tom, a World War II veteran, flew as a Lone Eagle with the National Honor Flight Network in April 2008 with his son, Vince, as guardian. That experience sparked what would later become Honor Flight Rochester, Inc., which included Vince Hope as a co-founder and past president.

Tom was among the many dignitaries to welcome home HFR’s first Mission in October 2008. Eight years later, HFR was honored to have Tom at the Welcome Home celebration for our milestone 50th mission on September 22, 2016. Tom was an extraordinary person. A great American. A great husband. And a great father of three sons. We will miss Tom Hope, but we know that his spirit will continue flying with us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
