Our Mission

July 27

Honor Flight Columbus 5K Run/Walk

Academy Park, Gahanna

2019 Runway 5K

Registration is open for the 2019 John Glenn International Runway 5K Run & Walk. This very popular event will be Saturday, September 21, beginning at 9:00 AM. 



Honor Flight Columbus accepts applications from America’s Senior Veterans: Currently, these are the men and women who served during WWII, Korean, and Vietnam War years. In addition, we put terminally ill veterans from any era at the head of the line. 


Accordingly, WWII veterans will continue to have top priority, with Korean and Vietnam veterans now comprising the majority of each flight. We call the Korean and Vietnam veterans on the waiting list for their flight in the order that we receive their applications.

It is our goal to transition veterans of wars by the sequence of the conflicts as long as donations from the public continue.

Get your application into us soon.
