About Angel Flight West and Endeavor Awards
The Endeavor Awards is hosted by Angel Flight West (AFW) and will take place in Los Angeles on Friday May 10, 2024, to honor and celebrate the work of volunteer pilots nationwide. Volunteer pilots donate their time and the gift of flight to save lives, provide access to medical care, transport veterans, and rescue animals, map environmental data, aid in disaster relief, and contribute to the public good in communities nationwide.
This memorable event will shine a spotlight on volunteer pilots’ selfless work. Angel Flight West hopes this event can serve as a platform for all Volunteer Pilot Organizations to gain recognition and funding together. Aviation heroes and celebrities will come together to raise awareness and support for charitable flying everywhere.
