How one Company’s service is uniquely fit to help families during the pandemic

Each day pilots of A Journey With Wings take to the skies, heading towards a local mountain, beach, or National Park knowing that a family is waiting at a nearby trailhead, beach, or lookout point to say goodbye to their loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic families have had to alter traditional funerals. Families have to find ways to hold services outside and maintain a social distance. This has been difficult for some families, as it is often very different than what they would normally do, and this adds stress to what is already a stressful time.

A Journey With Wings is uniquely fit to be a socially-distanced funeral option. A Journey With Wings Scatterings cremated remains by airplane over some of the world’s most beautiful places such as National Parks, State Parks, Conservancies and at Sea. The witnessed scattering service allows families to watch the release of the cremated remains. This makes it perfect fit for a funeral during the COVID-19 pandemic.

1. It is outdoors as the families are able to watch from a trailhead, lookout point, beach or pier

2. The release is over wide-open spaces, it takes about ½ mile to release the cremated remains

3. Families can arrive in separate cars, spread out and yet still all participate in the service.

“One of my favorite parts of my job is to assist families in selecting the appropriate location for the release of the cremated remains as well as the right time and location for witnessing the release. I want to make sure it is a location where every member of their family can access and participate,” says Jamie, the founder and main pilot for A Journey With Wings.

A few of A Journey with Wings’ most popular destinations for services include the Santa Monica Mountains, Santa Ana Mountains, Grand Canyon National Park, and Sequoia National Park. A complete list of approved locations is available on the web site,
