We’re Here to Save Lives

TxJet is a 501(c)(3) subsidiary of Indiana Donor Network, the state’s federally designated organ procurement organization. Indiana Donor Network’s mission is to save and heal lives through organ, tissue and eye donation and transplantation. TxJet extends that mission by ensuring that each donor’s gift of life is transported to transplant recipients quickly and safely.

ABOUT ORGAN TRANSPLANT AVIATION

Before TxJet, transplant centers and organ procurement organizations relied on charter companies for organ transport. Charter companies are neither specialized in organ transplant nor held to uniform safety standards. Tragically, accidents occurred resulting in the loss of medical teams and organs intended for transplant. In order to transport organs and transplant teams safely and efficiently, Indiana Donor Network set out to develop an aviation program exclusively dedicated to this task.

After organ recovery, a donor’s gift must be transplanted into the recipient within hours for the operation to be successful. That’s where TxJet comes in. By having a dedicated aviation service on call 24/7/365, we ensure that each donor’s gift results in lives saved.
