This mission taking Veterans from Lakeland Linder Airport to Washington DC is planned for April 2019.


As in the past, the mission will be a one day event departing early in the morning and returning in the evening.

The mission will take place during the Sun ‘n Fun Fly-in.  All Veterans who have not participated in a previous Honor Flight or Flight to Honor are eligible. At the request of numerous veterans of the Vietnam and later eras, we have created options that a veteran may select to participate on the mission.

Option 1.  Veteran accompanied by a Guardian.  This is primarily for a Veteran requiring physical assistance and/or a Guardian specifically requesting to accompany a particular Veteran.  The Guardian donates $450 for the opportunity.  No cost to the Veteran.

Option 2.  Veteran unaccompanied by a Guardian but sponsored by a family member, employer, organization or friend.  The sponsor contributes $250 for a seat on the mission for the Veteran.  

Option 3.  Veteran unaccompanied by a Guardian sponsors himself or herself and donates $250 for a seat on the mission.

For Option 2 & 3 the Veteran must be physically capable of completing the mission without assistance such as a walker, wheelchair or other mobility device.  This does not preclude another veteran accompanying a veteran needing assistance.  In this case, a $450 donation will place both on the mission.

FHPF was established in January 2015 and is based in Polk County. However, any eligible veteran is welcome to apply for Flight to Honor flight. Priority is given to those with severe medical conditions followed by World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans.

Fundraising is underway to cover the cost of this effort.  Community support is needed.
