While Honor Flights for our hub are suspended until spring of 2022 due to COVID-19 precautions, WE CONTINUE TO ACCEPT GUARDIAN APPLICATIONS!
Honor Flight Arizona would not be successful without the generous support of our Guardians. Guardians are volunteers who travel with the Veterans to Washington, D.C. They ensure that every Veteran has a safe and memorable experience.
Duties include, but are not limited to, physically assisting the Veterans at the airports, during the flight and at the memorials. Please know that this is a physically taxing trip and that Guardians need to be in good health. PLEASE NOTE: wives, husbands or significant others of Veterans may not participate as Guardians for their husband or wife.
NOTE: Pursuant to a TSA security change, beginning May 3, 2023, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States. If your Arizona driver’s license or ID does not have an embedded gold star, you won’t be able to fly. Learn more about how to obtain an Arizona Travel ID.
The Guardian fee includes airfare, accommodations, meals, transportation, tips, etc. You do not need to bring any money, unless you intend to purchase souvenirs.
The Guardian Fee PayPal buttons are below. The fee is $1150 if you’re flying with us, round-trip, from Phoenix (use the first button).
The fee is $450 if you’re meeting us at Baltimore-Washington (BWI) (use the second button).
You don’t need to pay the fee until contacted directly by Honor Flight Arizona for your specific date/flight/trip.
(Please Note: For General Donations to Honor Flight Arizona, use the “Donate” page.)
From the moment the veterans are in our hands until we return them to their loved ones, Guardians are asked to treat these heroes as if they are family and ensure that every veteran has a safe and honoring experience. In return, when you spend time with these veterans, you will experience the trip of a lifetime!
