Guardian Application for Kansas Honor Flight

The Kansas Honor Flight would not be successful without the generous support of our guardians. Guardians play a significant role on every trip, ensuring every veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Next-generation family members (ages 18 – 70) may serve as guardians, as long as they can perform the duties. Guardians must fill out a guardian application and submit it at (or very close to) the same time as the veteran who is also applying for a Kansas Honor Flight.

Guardians are also responsible for their own expenses (airline fare, etc.). The current cost for a Guardian to take the three-day trip is $900, and includes airfare, hotel, meals, and ground transportation. THE GUARDIAN CONTRIBUTION IS NOT MADE UNTIL A GUARDIAN IS CONFIRMED FOR A SPECIFIC FLIGHT. FINAL SELECTION OF QUALIFIED GUARDIANS WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE FLIGHT COORDINATOR.

  • What is a Guardian On A Kansas Honor Flight?

    Veterans requiring special assistance must have a guardian accompany them for their trip. A guardian can be any friend or family member, with the exception of spouses. It is national Honor Flight policy that spouses are ineligible to accompany veterans as guardians, unless the spouse is also a qualified veteran (fitting the same qualifications for time and service period as the veteran going on the flight).

    Guardians play a significant role on every Kansas Honor Flight, ensuring that every veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Duties include, but are not limited to, physically assisting the veterans at the airport, during the flight and at the memorials.
