HFS serves ten counties in the greater Central NY area, and we're one of 130 Regional Hubs in the National Honor Flight Network. Across America we lose nearly 1,000 World War II & Korean War Vets a day! Time is running out to THANK the Greatest Generation!

Honoring Veterans

We fly 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 WWII veterans, Korean War veterans and terminally ill veterans from any era. In the future, Honor Flight will be expanded to include Veterans of the Vietnam War and other conflicts. Our goal is to take every veteran who otherwise would not or could not go, and who wants to fly.

Veterans typically fly in the order their applications are received. Medical priorities are the exception.

Our flying season is from April to October each year. We are accepting applications for upcoming Honor Flight Syracuse 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.

Unfortunately veterans cannot choose what flight they will travel on due to medical and logistic issues associated with the flight process. 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.

Sad that the quilts made for the attendees were not highlighted. The quilts are a highlight at the end of the trip and take many hours to make. There are almost 200 quilts made each year for the two trips.

A fantastic show about an incredible bunch of people, it gave me pride in CNYers, If my Father was still living,he would been with you.... thank you
