TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Grace on Wings completes another mission flight, right here in Terre Haute.
Based out of Indianapolis, Grace on Wings is the nation's only charitable air transport that specializes in critical and specialty care.
On average, an air ambulance ride would cost a patient, out of pocket anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000.
Since Grace on Wings is all a volunteer group, those costs are drastically reduced, allowing families to be reunited with a lot less worry and burden.
"It's the most rewarding thing I've ever done in my life, and all the med crew and everyone will tell you because you can see families coming back together and their tears of joy and reuniting families back together where no one else will be able to step up and help them is an amazing feeling," Hal Blank, Chief Pilot of Grace on Wings said.
To date, the company has given over $1.6 million in charitable assistance, and flown over 250,000 miles in the US alone.
