Thanks for your interest in becoming an Honor Flight volunteer tour guide. Volunteer Honor Flight tour guides must commit to the entire time the Veterans are on the bus; from the beginning of their day to their return to the airport/hotel. Tour guides provide information while the bus is traveling from site to site; tour guides make themselves available at each stop but a guided tour of the sites is not involved.
Tour guides must adhere to the hub’s Special Health Protocol, mask requirements at the airport, on the bus and indoor spaces.
Our Honor Flight tour guides come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, including some professional tour guides who donate their time to Honor Flights. Interested Honor Flight tour guides should have a passion for serving Veterans, basic knowledge of war memorials and other significance memorials and building on a typical Honor Flight route, ability to engage with an audience and ability to take instruction from the hub’s leadership.
All interested volunteer tour guides must complete a ZOOM training before serving on an Honor Flight. New tour guides are also encouraged to serve as a “shadow” tour guide for one flight, to learn how a typical Honor Flight trip operates. DC-based tour guides are typically provided meals, water, and validated parking at the airport. Tour guides can specify which airports they can serve. Some hubs travel by bus and will ask tour guides to meet them at their first stop in DC.
