2018 Honor Flight DCA Schedule & Upcoming Trainings

Just released:
2018 Honor Flight DCA  Schedule

DCA Honor Flight’s 2018 Schedule is available for you to review.

Take a look today, and mark your calendar for any greetings you can attend. The first flight (for now) is scheduled for Saturday, March 3!

As you find flights that you’d like to greet, please use the “REQUEST YOUR GAP HERE” link for that flight to request a gate pass to get through security. After each sign up, you will receive an email confirming that the information has been captured — please confirm the accuracy of the information! You will receive a confirmation email 24 hours prior to the flight confirming whether the GAP has been honored (at the discretion of the airlines!) All members of your group need to request a pass — even babes in arms and minors.

Also coming up are opportunities to be trained as a Guardian or Tour Guide.


Guardian Training: March 7, 2018

The first Guardian Training of 2018 is scheduled for March 7 at 6:30 PM.

Every Veteran participating in an Honor Flight is assigned a Guardian. Most often, the Guardian is a family member or volunteer from the Veteran’s home city who accompanies the Veteran on the plane. Occasionally, however, some Honor Flight hubs request DC-based Guardians to accompany Veterans throughout their day here. Those who have completed Guardian Training qualify to participate in this unique volunteer role. 


Tour Guide Training: March 27, 2018

The first Tour Guide Training of 2018 is scheduled for March 27 at 7 PM.

Our volunteer tour guides meet the veterans when they arrive at the airport, and ride on the bus with them all day to explain different monuments, buildings and interesting facts about DC.
