Honor Flight of West Central Florida ® (HFWCF) was established in late 2010 as an official Regional Hub of the National Honor Flight Network. As part of the Network, HFWCF provides all expense paid flights for War Era Veterans in the Tampa Bay area to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C.
- Veterans Flown: 1,493
- Veterans to their Memorials in Washington D.C.
- Flights completed: 20
- Veterans Honored at Home: 64 Veterans

- In 2011, our inaugural year, with significant support from corporate sponsors and individual donors, we completed four Honor Flights.
- In 2012 we completed four, in 2013 completed seven and in 2014 we completed four.
With an estimated 32,000 WWII Veterans living in the West Central Florida area, we have a huge challenge. We need continued support from grateful Americans like yourselves, and the generous participation of area corporations to honor these War Era Veterans with a tour to D.C. in the manner they deserve.
PRIORITY – Top priority is given to WWII Veterans and terminally ill Veterans that have not yet visited their memorial.
PLEASE NOTE: We schedule our veterans first in and first out. We currently have over 300 WWII Veterans on our waiting list. Once flown, we will begin to fly our Korean War Veterans followed by Vietnam Veterans and continue in chronological order of conflict. They all have given so much and it is time we show them that their efforts are not forgotten. Please consider donating, volunteering, and/or accompanying a Veteran to D.C. as their Guardian. It will be a lifetime memory for you.
