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.

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.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden & unexpected loss of our friend and teammate, Eric Amberge.

Eric was an integral part of the early growth of our organization, serving first as a guardian, then as a board member, serving as Director of Information Systems.
Eric traveled on many missions, serving as as bus leader, and most recently served as Mission Leader for Mission 14.

Eric was a proud Air Force veteran, true patriot & friend to veterans. He served as Commander for the Robert J. Hydon American Legion Post #239 in Skaneateles, NY, where he oversaw multiple upgrades to benefit the veterans who he served.

We at Honor Flight Syracuse are blessed to have known and served alongside Eric. He was a staunch supporter of our mission, and we sincerely thank him for his many contributions to our organization.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Tammy, and their entire family during this difficult time.

Our mission is to honor, remember, and thank the brave heroes of that invasion. Thank you for your service and sacrifice for this country. ... See MoreSee Less
