We serve children ages 5 to 18 who face a serious health challenge or have lost an immediate family member to illness.

Flight1 defines “immediate family member” as a parent or sibling (including step-parents and step- and half-siblings) and a “serious health challenge” as any physical impairment that significantly reduces the quality of life or in all likelihood shortens the expectancy of life.

The child must have, or their family must be able to arrange, transportation to and from event locations.

Children are accepted into the Courageous Fliers program without regard to race, national origin, ethnic background, sex, religion or handicap. There is no charge for participating families and no restrictions based on social background, employment or income. Acceptance into the program is based on an honor system and a doctor’s approval if applicable.
