Patient AirLift Services (PALS)
Need transportation to an HHT Center of Excellence? PALS may be able to help. PALS is a 501(c)(3) that arranges FREE air transportation throughout the Northeastern US through their volunteer pilot network for individuals requiring medical diagnosis, treatment or follow-up. PALS also acts as a referral guide – in the event PALS is not able to arrange a flight they will direct the patient to other options. Here are some things to keep in mind when requesting a flight or referring a patient: 1) Requests should be made a minimum of 5 business days in advance and 2) Passengers are eligible if they: Are ambulatory and can sit upright for the duration of the flight; Can get in and out of a small 4-6 seat plane; Can fly in a non-pressurized plane; Are located farther than a 2-hour car drive in PALS’ geographic region; Have a verifiable financial need; Maximum weight 250lbs; No history of seizures
