The Emerald Coast Honor Flight is a program established in 2007 to allow World War II veterans living in Northwest Florida to travel to Washington, DC to visit the city's World War II memorials.

Congressman Jeff Miller announced the program on November 12, 2007, in partnership Baptist Health Care, Humana Veterans Healthcare Service, and the Rotary Club of Pensacola.[1] Pen Air Federal Credit Union is also a major sponsor of the program.

The inaugural flight took place on April 30, 2008. Several subsequent flights have been made.
