The inaugural Honor Flight Tour took place in May of 2005. Six small planes flew out of Springfield, Ohio taking twelve World War II Veterans on a visit to the memorial in Washington, DC. In August of 2005, an ever-expanding waiting list of Veterans led our transition to commercial airline carriers with the goal of accommodating as many Veterans as possible. Partnering with HonorAir in Hendersonville, North Carolina, the Honor Flight Network was formed. Today, the network is expanding its programs to cities across the nation.
Honor Flight Bay Area was started in 2014 to serve those in the San Francisco Bay Area.
