Guardians have a very important role in the mission of Villages Honor Flight.  Guardians are the volunteers who escort/assist Veterans during the entire mission. 

Requirements (flightless program)

  • Guardians must be in good physical condition.  Although the flightless mission is far less taxing than the regular mission, guardians still be be asked to push a wheel chair now and then

  • All guardians, regardless of age, must pass a medical review by the Medical Advisor before they are accepted.   

  • Guardians should be prepared to attend a mandatory meeting 2-3 weeks prior to the actual flight date

  • Guardians must have an email account and must use it regularly

  • Guardians are expected to make a $50 donation to Villages Honor Flght for the honor of escorting a war-service hero.  Do Not include payment with your application 

This payment can eventually be made by check or on-line on our Donation Page. 

  • If you pay by check, please make the check payable to "Villages Honor Flight" with "Flightless Guardian" in the memo section. 

  • If you pay on-line, then please indicate that the on-line donation is for "Flightless Guardian"

  • Do not include a check with your application and do not pay on-line when you submit your application.  Guardians will be asked to donate after they have been selected for a particular mission or when contacted by Villages Honor Flight.

Guardians must understand that although they are paying their own way, they have done so for the privilege of escorting a WWII hero for this mission and are NOT there as tourists or sightseers.  Their job is the safety and well-being of their Veteran and making sure their Veterans are where they need to be when they need to be, and help meet their Veteran's personal needs throughout the day.  This may include assisting a Veteran in the restroom.

If you wish to become an Guardian, download and complete the Guardian Application and send it to the address at the bottom of the application.  For more information on Guardians, contact us at
