Honoring Veterans

Honor Flight Syracuse flies Central NY heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect together at their memorials.

In accordance with Honor Flight policy, priority order for each mission is given to elder WWII veterans, Korean War veterans and terminally ill veterans from any era.Β  In addition, we’re including veterans of the Vietnam War and other eras. Our goal is to provide the Honor Flight experience to every veteran who desires to fly with us.

We generally fly two missions per year, one in late April, the other in late September or early October.Β  We’re continually accepting applications for our future missions. Veteran applications are prioritized in the order in which they are received, except in extraordinary circumstances. Please review the Frequently Asked Questions for details.

We also encourage veterans from the Rochester and Buffalo area's to visit and register with their local Honor Flight hubs before registering with Syracuse Honor Flight.

#DYK we bring one wheelchair for every veteran on every mission, regardless of their need? The day is long and tiring, so many vets who do not need a wheelchair enjoy having one at places like Arlington where there is a lot of walking and standing. Many thanks to our friends at the Service to the Armed Forces Program at the American Red Cross of Western and Central New York for donating three new chairs to us, just in time for Mission 13! ...

I went with my father on Mission 12...Honor Flight does an amazing job of making the veterans feel appreciated and honored. Safe travels to Mission 13, and thank you for your service. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Took my father 3 years ago. A WWII Navy veteran. What a fantastic thing for our veterans. Glad he was able to experience it and made him feel special. From start to finish. And the bus trip through DC when there was a police escort just like the President gets, with everyone stopped to let us through, he thought that was amazing!!

And on behalf of my ramp coworkers here in DC, thank you for having the lightweight ones!!! πŸ˜‰ See you Saturday!

Amy, thinking of Dad and wishing I could have taken him on this trip. So glad your dad and you got to go.

Enjoy your trip you're so deserving. Thank you for your service.

Yesterday we had the honor of visiting folks from AXA US here in Syracuse. AXA is one of our major partners, not only as a financial sponsor of our mission, but their staff join us each mission day to help make YOUR experience more enjoyable. From directing traffic to hanging signs to moving boxes, we are so appreciative of all AXA does for Honor Flight Syracuse and the veterans we serve! ... See MoreSee Less
