Bringing together the best of both worlds.
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.
