We provide health care ACCESS to the disadvantaged, primarily children with life-threatening disabilities, birth defects or chronic, complex illnesses.
We TRANSPORT patients to treatment until they are better – even when it requires several trips to support repeat therapies, multiple surgeries and follow-up care. We also provide ground transportation to and from treatment and pay to house the patients’ families near treatment facilities, when necessary.
We are the only FREE medical air transport service in the U.S., with specially equipped aircraft that can accommodate stretchers, wheelchairs and medical equipment.
We own our aircraft and maintain them to strict Wings of Hope and FAA standards.
Our staff of volunteer pilots, mechanics, doctors, nurses and patient flight advocates must meet our strict training and licensing requirements.
Our focus on SAFETY underscores everything we do.

William was born with clubfoot and arthrogryposis, a joint condition in which some of the joints don’t move as much as normal and may even be stuck in one position. Successful treatment requires frequent trips to a specialized hospital and, for most children, can lead to big improvements in how they move and what they can do. Now almost two, William made his first flight with Wings of Hope when he was a just a baby. Since then, we have flown him 13 times round trip from his home in the northern region of the Midwest, to St. Louis Shriners Hospital. More than 90% of our MAT patients are frequent fliers like William—and we commit to flying them for as long as it takes to achieve the best possible outcome.
