Eagle's Wings AirIn this YouTube video recorded at the 2011 ICCFA convention and expo, Frank Kaiser, president and CEO of Eagle’s Wings Air, talks about how his company helps funeral directors and families with the air shipment of bodies.

Transportation issues are important for consumers to know, particularly for those who have elderly parents who live in a warmer climate and have burial plots many miles away (up North or back East).

As the only air transportation specialists focused on the needs of mortuary and funeral service professionals, they make managing the air transportation of human remains easy.  For a surprisingly low service fee, they will:

  • Search all domestic or international flights to find the best option
  • Handle the airline reservation – saving time
  • Prepay the airline charge for convenience
  • Proactively monitor the status from start to finish, ensuring everything goes as planned.

In 2007, David McComb, a fourth-generation funeral home owner, and Frank Kaiser, an airline industry veteran, put their heads together to discuss a problem affecting the funeral service profession. They identified a gap in service regarding the air transportation of human remains – unlike other industries, there wasn’t a logistics expert offering centralized customer service, proactive management or advocacy on behalf of the death care community. With David’s extensive experience in funeral service, and Frank’s 25+ years of aviation experience, they recognized an opportunity to deliver a higher standard of air transportation management to the death care community. And so Eagle’s Wings Air took flight.
