As citizens, we owe an enormous debt to those
who have sacrificed for our country.
It's a debt that is impossible to repay.
But that won't stop us from trying.
The VAC provides free air transportation to post 9/11 combat wounded and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes through a national network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots.
Many of the plane owners who volunteer with us are also pilots who welcome the opportunity to perform a valuable service while maintaining their proficiency.
This is their story - the Veterans, the Pilots and the supporters. Sometimes harrowing, occasionally joyful, it is a story of adversity, and redemption.
Some owners come from military backgrounds themselves; others are seasoned aviators or simply passionate about flying. But they all have one thing in common - the desire to serve those who have served us.
