For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

Scattering cremated ashes from an airplane
Releasing a loved ones ashes from the heavens is a
celebration of life that will provide a unique and lasting memory. You can choose to have your loved ones ashes released from an airplaine high over the Atlantic ocean, over a memorable landmark, or on one of our special destination
flights to the Florida Keys. Commemorate a special anniversary with a memorial release of rose petals. Ash scattering is also good for the environment, since no chemical preservatives from the embalming process are leached into ground water, and no land is covered with concrete. It's not about the final destination, but the beginning of a new, wonderful and far-ranging journey.

Final Flight can arrange for cremains to be picked up at most locations in south Florida, or you can choose to ship them to us. When we receive them, they will be placed in our secure facility until the Final Flight has been scheduled. Once a date has been set, you will receive an invitation to the airport for you to watch the flight depart. Once the scattering has been performed, you will receive a customized memorial certificate suitable for framing.
