Outreach Aircraft

The Outreach Aircraft Program provides transportation for KU Medical Center providers and faculty to various locations statewide for education, research and service activities.

About Outreach Aircraft

Our trips ensure that KU Medical Center can meet the health care needs of local communities and the state in an efficient, cost-effective manner. Activities include community-engaged research projects, health professional community education, rural student education purposes, planning meetings and other related functions. 

Aircraft Usage Procedures

To reserve a seat, complete the reservation form (PDF). If you are the first person to reserve a seat on the flight, you will be designated as the after-hours contact person. As the after-hours contact person, the pilot will contact you in the event of any change in the flight schedule. Furthermore, the after-hours contact person is responsible for taking all necessary steps to inform the passengers, destination site, ground transportation and any other affected entities of changes to the original flight plans.

The week prior to a flight, the Scheduling Officer will call to confirm all flight information and follow up with an itinerary that includes departure and arrival times, plane and pilot information. If there are not at least four travelers for a flight, the flight may be canceled.

Fees

To help offset the cost of the scheduled flights, an administrative fee will apply for each university employee who travels on the university aircraft. At the time of the seat request, a university account number will be requested.

The following are the fees for flights:

  • Salina, Wichita – $125 per person
  • Hays – $150 per person
  • Garden City, Goodland – $175 per person
