Mission #23 Rescheduled

Mission 23 is set for April 29, 2023 and Mission 24 on May 20, 2023. Mission 25 will fly in the fall and we will announce the exact date as soon as we can.

Hurricane Ian caused the cancellation of our flight on 10/8/22. We hope that all our veterans, guardians and staff members are safe and sound. We know that they are busy helping others recover as well.

The Collier-Lee
Honor Flight Mission

Our Veterans at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Our mission is to transport local Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifice.

We were established on September 25th, 2013 to bring this program to the Collier and Lee County areas in Southwest Florida. Six short weeks after forming, a very successful inaugural flight (Mission 1) took place on November 9th, 2013. To date we have transported nearly 1200 WWII, Korean and Vietnam veterans on this deeply emotional and well deserved trip.

Support for these trips is provided by volunteers and is at no cost to the veterans. Top priority is given to our most senior heroes.
