Mission Statement

AeroAngel helps seriously ill children travel to for lifesaving medical care. When there is no other safe transportation option, AeroAngel provides free, lifesaving flights on private jet aircraft using volunteer professional pilots. In addition to donated flights, AeroAngel operates its own business jet to do flights across the country. AeroAngel is the only nonprofit in the country providing free, lifesaving private jet flights, often on short notice.

Organization History

AeroAngel was formed by Mark Pestal, a Denver attorney and commercial pilot, who has a passion for aviation and desire to use his flying skills to help others. Mark discerned a need to help families with seriously ill children access lifesaving medical care, often a great distance away, when no other safe options existed. Given Colorado's terrain and challenging weather, he sought to utilize high-performance aircraft to do missions often on short notice and most weather conditions for medically fragile passengers.

Testimonials

We are forever grateful to AeroAngel for getting our daughter to Cleveland. She became very ill with in hours of landing and was admitted to Cleveland Clinic immediately. She's in good hands because of this organization. God bless them. Stacey C.

Without AeroAngel, specifically Mark and Mark, we could not have brought our son home. Their compassion, their hearts, and ability to give all to help another is something I will never forget and look up to. Thank you. Bryan and Kim G.
