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.  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.  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.

Honor Flight Syracuse, Inc. is a fully registered New York State 501c3 public charity and is entirely volunteer led. Our region encompasses 10 counties: Cayuga, Onondaga, Oswego, Cortland, Madison, Oneida, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence.

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.

Honor Flight Syracuse

Several of our board members were honored to attend yesterday's retirement celebration for John Walsh with American Airlines. John will be sorely missed, though we are grateful for his years of commitment and service to our mission and the veterans we serve. Enjoy retirement John!SYR Airport said "goodbye, and good luck" to a long time fixture of the airport Thursday. We threw a retirement party for American Airlines Syracuse General Manager John Walsh, in a room that we ultimately named in his honor! While the cake says 37 years at American, he's actually been working on the airport property in some capacity for 47 years!

Thank you for your service John! We wish you a happy and healthy retirement with your family! ✈️🙏💯

Want to learn more about John Walsh? We did an in-depth interview with him in our 2016 Annual Report to the community, which you can find here: www.syrsraa.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/SRAA-Annual-Report-2016.pdf
