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

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.

Honor Flight Mission 2 alumni Howard Hall received a Centenarian Salute this past Saturday, January 15th, to celebrate his service and his 102nd birthday. HFS volunteer and son, John Hall, presented his dad with a flag from Congressman John Katko’s office that has been flown over the US Capitol along with a Proclamation. Many of Howard’s family members were in attendance to celebrate him.

Howard served in WWII in the U.S. Army, 32nd Infantry Division in the Phillipines from 1942-45. He is a life long resident of Oswego, NY.

Happy birthday, Howard, and thank you for your service to our country.
