Honoring our Senior Veterans

Honor Flight Columbus is not affiliated with HonorFlights.com or HonorFlight.com, which charge veterans a fee for to participate. Honor Flight Columbus never charges a vet!

Our Mission

At the 12th Annual Honor Flight Columbus Reunion on November 13, the organization recognized the original working Board assembled in 2007 by Bill and Bobbi Richards as the true, legitimate, and accurate Founders of Honor Flight Columbus.

HFC Founders Special Recognition

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, as well as the Cold War periods before Vietnam. 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, Cold War, 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.
