In a perfect world we would be able to schedule missions precisely and tell every one when they will fly.  Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world.  Building the mission manifest for 50 vets and 50 guardians is far more complicated than you might think.  Even though we work from a carefully prepared list and everyone flies on a first come, first served basis, the "next 50" is never the 50 that eventually fly on the next flight.  The reasons are many; click here for some information on building a manifest.

People tend to hear what they want to hear.  We make no promises about specific flight dates until the mission is in advanced planning and participants are formally notified (by telephone and then by letter) -- typically 10 to 12 weeks before the actual flight.  If a potential guardian asks when they will fly, we cannot accurately answer that question.  We can provide our best estimate but that is all it is -- an estimate.

No one in Villages Honor Flight has the authority to promise when a vet or guardian will fly except the Veteran Coordinator (for vets), the Guardian Coordinator (for guardians) or the President/Hub Director.
