An­gel Flight is a not-for-profit char­ity that pro­vides free flights to coun­try peo­ple who need to at­tend med­i­cal ap­point­ments in the city, but can’t af­ford the cost. The com­pany does not re­ceive any gov­ern­ment fund­ing and re­lies purely on do­na­tions, 100 per cent of which go straight to­wards flights. Pi­lots vol­un­teer their time and air­craft to trans­port peo­ple as well as blood, blood prod­ucts and med­i­cal drugs – all free of charge. This in­cred­i­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion has ar­ranged more than 20,000 flights Aus­tralia-wide, as­sist­ing 3000 pa­tients – all thanks to do­na­tions from in­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­nity groups, cor­po­ra­tions and de­ceased es­tates. an­
