I have not used Angel Flight.....but I do use AirLifeLine every time I fly down to Chicago. It is only a 4-5 hour drive for me...but something that I cannot handle. The flight down to Chicago takes a little more than an hour...and even though it is on small planes I feel safer than on a big plane. I know that the pilots are in control of their own maintenance and am aware that the chances of surviving a crash are greater in a little plane.
I have flown as far as to Baltimore using AirLifeLine. In that instance we stopped in Toledo and changed planes and pilots. It is such a wonderful program and they allow you to take someone with you. I have taken Bev with me to most of my appointments and I think that she would concur that it is an awesome experience.
I do not know about Angel Flight but Airlifeline flys into the little airport here in town and then lands at the airport closest to my destination in Chicago. It sure eliminates a lot of hassle.....and expensive cab fares in Chicago.
