Transportation to Treatment



Patient Airlift Services (PALS) - 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, for military personnel and their families, or for other compassionate or humanitarian purposes. 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. The individuals who utilize PALS services have limited financial resources. All patients must be medically stable and able to enter and exit the small general aviation aircraft. Contact a mission coordinator at 631-694-7257 for additional information about qualifying for a flight. PALS Brochure
