Angel Flight Northeast heard about the challenge for Fishers Island residents in getting to medical appointments on Long Island. The organization reached out to us to let us know they are available to provide free flights from Fishers to Long Island to help both adults and children get to their doctors. The visit does not need to be an emergency since it is part of AFNE’s mission is to improve access to healthcare in remote locations in the northeast. Once on Long Island, one of their volunteer drivers (“earth angels”) will take you to your doctor’s office.
Pilots are experienced and vetted for this free service. They prefer a couple of weeks lead time to arrange for a flight, and there is a weight limit for passengers and baggage. In addition, weather may be a factor, but they are happily willing to help us whenever possible. The flight from Fishers to Westhampton is 15 minutes!
