Thank you for your interest in applying for an Honor Flight Kentucky mission. Veterans of WWII, the Korean, and Vietnam Wars are placed on our waiting list. Veterans are also prioritized for flights based on age as we lose an estimated 640 WWII veterans nationwide each day. The only exception to this are terminally ill veterans from any war, who will be prioritized.
REAL ID enforcement goes into effect October 1, 2021. Kentucky driver’s licenses without a black star cannot be used at airport security checkpoints for U.S. commercial air travel. Click here to learn more.
There are multiple applications below. Please read through this entire page before selecting an application.
