HFR Postpones All Fall Missions (Sept. and Oct.)

Continuing with our abundance of caution Honor Flight Rochester is postponing missions to Washington, D.C. for September and October 2020.

While Honor Flight Rochester is Mission Ready, the safety of our veterans and volunteers is paramount and overrides all prior travel plans. After the COVID-19 pandemic fully subsides we will resume flying.

In anticipation of an uncertain start-up date, in the interim HFR will work on refreshing our processes and programs to align with the post pandemic era new requirements. Also you may find interesting our recently initiated Facebook photo series, “Why we do what we do!”

Honor Flight Rochester is in this for the long haul and holds in the highest regard the trust and goodwill of our veterans, volunteers and the greater Rochester community. We are eager to fly again but only when it is safe to do so. Veteran applications never expire and their places in line will be maintained.

Honor Flight Rochester loves our veterans and looks forward to recognizing their great service as soon as we can!

Questions will arise and may be directed to HFR President Rich Stewart. The Media may submit any questions by email to HFR at: [email protected].

Mission 83 (59 vets)
May 25-26
Mission 84 (60 vets)
June 15-16
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.
