We launch four flights each year in April, May, Sept & Oct (when weather is the nicest) to Washington D.C.. We are currently flying WWII, Korean & Vietnam eras’ veterans.
THE NATIONAL HONOR FLIGHT NETWORK HAS POSTPONED ALL Honor Flights through August 15, 2021.
The Honor Flight Network staff and Board are continuing to monitor developments in vaccine distribution and relevant restrictions in the DC area. The national Honor Flight Board of Directors made this decision based upon many factors including, but not limited to the following.
- Status of the vaccine rollout and timing between first and second doses of the current vaccines, as well as considerations regarding availability of vaccine to younger population/guardians/volunteers;
- Group gathering restrictions in the D.C. area continue to be in force, with no established end date at this time; and
- The National Park Service is not currently issuing group gathering permits and there is no indication when NPS will resume permitting for group gatherings.
ROSTERS FOR THE NEXT TWO UPCOMING FLIGHTS (NOT YET SCHEDULED). ALL WE BE CALLED WHEN HONOR FLIGHTS RESUME.
If you want to help give these veterans the “Welcome Home” they never received we suggest you show up at Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee between 8-9pm for their return between 10-11pm.
WE CALL APRIL & MAY FLIGHT VETERANS IN JANUARY. SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER FLIGHT VETERANS ARE CALLED IN JUNE. GUARDIANS ARE CALLED ABOUT 1 MONTH AFTER THE VETERANS ARE CALLED.
