Frequently Asked Questions
- How many disabled veterans are scheduled to go?
- Of the disabled veterans going, how many will have to be physically assisted getting on and off the bus?
- Which Guardian applicants are the most qualified? Medically trained, active duty military personnel, and veterans who have previously participated in a flight are given top priority and serve as leadership members. The Guardian applicants physically capable of assisting in the lifting of veterans are also a top priority. Once the director feels enough of those positions have been filled, other applicants are then considered. Again, these decisions rest solely with the Program Director.
OXYGEN — If the veteran requires oxygen, a prescription for the oxygen must be provided by the veteran’s healthcare provider, identifying the delivery method (mask or nasal cannula), frequency (as needed or continuously), and the rate of delivery (2-3 liters per minute). Veterans must attempt to provide their own FAA-approved oxygen concentrator for the flight; however, Honor Flight will work to provide a FAA-approved oxygen concentrator for use during the trip if local oxygen equipment is not available. We also provide oxygen cylinders to be used at the memorials. If an overnight stay in the D.C. area is required, we will provide an overnight concentrator for use in the hotel room. Veterans on oxygen are required to have oxygen cylinders available from their home to the departure airport and also on the return from their local airport back to their homes. No oxygen cylinders are permitted to be used on the aircraft. If the veteran requires oxygen during the trip, please call us at 1-888-881-1566 to discuss arrangements.
