Interest from veterans in Honor Flight Chicago has never been greater. Our waitlist currently stands at approximately 2,000 veterans.
Veteran interest in HFC coincides with an increase in operating costs. In 2008 when HFC launched, it cost approximately $70,000 to fully fund one honor flight. In 2020, that per-flight cost is projected to be $225,000. That is more than $2,000 per veteran.
We want each one of our veterans to receive their day of honor. In order to do that, we need your help.
