Aerial Ash Dispersal Services

 

At this difficult time families may wish to honor their loved one by scattering ashes. The scattering of ashes is an affordable, unique and elegant funeral service option. The cremated remains are released into the air allowing the currents of the wind to take them on a final journey. We will work with you to select the right location and witnessing option for your loved one’s funeral service. We wish to help families bring closure to a difficult and trying time in a professional, safe, caring and dignified manner.

Upon completion of the flight, you will receive a Certificate of Air Scattering with the GPS coordinates for your reference.

Testimonials

Greetings,
I wanted to express our sincere gratitude for the outstanding care that you gave our family for the release of the ashes of my father, Col. Donald L. Flood. Everything exceeded our expectations. All of the pre flight communication was greatly appreciated and we succeeding in giving my dad his one big request of me, a last ride on a T-6. I know yours is painted up Navy but I am sure he appreciated that we had an air force pilot at the controls. The special parachute rig that you made worked amazingly well. My dad never had to exit a plane in the air but if he did he would have wanted that parachute!. Alton, The pilot was exactly on time over the beach and our family got some great pictures to remember the event. The ash cloud lingered over the surf for almost ten minutes, it was amazing. It is a memory that I and our family will always have, and I am glad that I found your organization to fulfill my dad’s wish. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
John F.
