About ACA

What is the Air Care Alliance? How did it begin and what has it accomplished?

The Air Care Alliance began at a conference of representatives of volunteer-based charitable flying groups, held at the headquarters of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association in 1990. The decision was made to form ACA to continue to hold the conferences annually, to develop consensus among the groups regarding appropriate regulations, to work with other aviation associations as well as governmental agencies, to promote charitable aviation, and to encourage the groups to work together in mutual support.

Mission Statement: “The Air Care Alliance promotes, supports, and represents public benefit flying through communication and cooperation among organizations facilitating flights for health, compassion, and community service.”

ACA is a nonprofit public benefit 501 c 3 organization incorporated in the state of California. As a publicly supported tax exempt charitable organization donations are typically tax deductible. We thank our donors immensely for making the work of our volunteer Directors and contributors possible.
