What we do
The flight credentials of our volunteer pilots and aircraft owners exceed the minimum requirements of EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) for private flight in and the aircraft meet specified regulatory and insurance minimums.
Our volunteer pilots come from all walks of life and are required to have more than 250 hours as a ‘Pilot in Command’; a current medical clearance and all relevant experience and endorsements for the type of aircraft they will be flying.
Angel Flight Europe volunteer pilots donate their time, their skills and the majority of their aircraft costs for each flight. To help offset the pilots’ operating costs Angel Flight Europe subsidises fuel used on flights, negotiates the waiver of landing fees at many supporting airports around Europe, and arranges the credit of any air navigation charges thanks to the support of Eurocontrol. Donations to Angel Flight Europe are used to subsidise fuel costs.
