HOLLIS, N.H., June 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Are a loved one's cremated remains sitting in a closet or collecting dust on a shelf? Take Wing Air, a New Hampshire-based aviation firm, now offers an affordable solution to finding a final resting place for cremated earthly remains in a more heavenly fashion.

Bill Dino, owner and operator of Take Wing Air, says, "Although I have been a pilot for many years, I first got the idea of doing aerial ash scattering commercially after I performed this service for my own parents. It brought a fitting closure to their lives and gave us comfort." After doing a little research, Dino found there was a need for such a service in this area.
As part of their service, Take Wing Air provides a witnessed certificate documenting the time and location of the release of the cremains and a Google map overlay of the flight. Aerial ash scattering can take place at a large selection of locations over land or sea throughout New England and Eastern New York. They are also able to honor special requests such as music, flyovers or readings.
Take Wing Air uses a specially modified twin engine plane that allows a loved one's ashes to be released through the bottom of the aircraft in a safe and dignified manner; the cremains will always drift down and away from the plane. There is never an issue of cremated ash coming back into the cockpit or impacting the side of the plane. Dino reports this is a common problem with many competing services or "pilot friends" who volunteer to help.
Take Wing Air has been offering professional aviation services to the New York/New England area since 2011. All of Take Wing Air's pilots hold commercial pilot ratings. More information is available at Take Wing Air's website: www.takewingair.com
