About Honor Flight Central Florida

Honor Flight Network was created solely to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials at no cost to them. Top priority is given to our senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. After serving these veterans, our efforts then focus on honoring Korean War and Vietnam era veterans. Since 2005 the Honor Flight Network has flown over 250,000 veterans from 46 states and 136 regional hubs. Honor Flight Central Florida is a registered HUB of the national Honor Flight Network. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization. We serve Central Florida Veterans regardless of which county they live in and fly out of the Orlando International Airport.
