Why become an Mercy Flight Southeast Pilot?

  1. Fly just one mission, and you won’t have to ask why! It’s incredibly rewarding.
  2. Most missions are booked weeks in advance; just pick one that suits your schedule.
  3. Mercy Flight missions are tax-deductible!

If you need to check details of a mission, access other resource information, or volunteer for a flight, go to Mission Control — AFIDS Login.

We need more pilots – NOW!

Join Mercy Flight Southeast as a volunteer private pilot and use your love of flying to help those in need. Mercy Flight™ Southeast member pilots come from all walks of life, fly a variety of single and twin engine planes as well as jet aircraft, and are united by a desire to apply their aviation skills in this unique way to help others.

Mercy Flight Southeast currently has about 1,000 active members in the 5 southeastern states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina. Many of our pilots own their own planes; however, some rent aircraft to fly missions. Most fly either 4 or 6 seaters and have either a private, commercial or ATP rating.

Mercy Flight Southeast coordinates more than 3,000 missions each year. There are many opportunities to participate, but never any pressure to fly. How much or how little you fly is up to you.

The time to join us is now!

Pilot’s Cancellation Policy
Mercy Flight™ Southeast pilots may cancel a mission for weather, personal, scheduling, financial, or any other reason. Pilots are encouraged to recognize and observe their personal limitations, and to fly only when they are completely comfortable doing so.

If cancellation is necessary, the pilot is requested to notify Operation Headquarters or the MFSE Hotline at 888-744-8263 with as much advance notice of the mission as possible. When unable to fly as pilot-in-command, a pilot can still actively participate by flying as a co-pilot.
