New England Burials At Sea, (NEBAS) has recently launched an additional “burial at sea air scattering” service to help bring closure to families who wish to honor their loved ones with final flight ash scattering by plane over the sea. New England Burials At Sea LLC, (NEBAS) offers burial at sea scatterings by plane or ocean vessel, eco-friendly full body sea burials and pet burial at sea.
The vast majority of cremations may never have a proper, dignified “celebration of life” burial ceremony. Many client families have either a commercial, military or sport enthusiast pilot in the family who loved flying.
Company founder Captain Brad White recently announced this new service air scattering now offered at NEBAS – The New England Air Scattering™ – a memorial ash scattering by a specially fitted 1953 high wing Cessna airplane piloted by a decorated Korean war pilot Ev Cassagneres of Connecticut with over 65 years of flight experience and who personally knew Charles Lindbergh and his family. Pilot Cassagneres is also a well respected and published author on the topic.
White said, “Pilot Cassagneres has developed a special in flight procedure for an all-at-once unattended scattering of cremated remains that can be geo-targeted over a special coordinate selected by the family from New York to Maine.” White added, “Pilot Steve Goyette of Massachusetts has been flying for over 35 years and often flies his authentic military low wing airplane which is a North American L – 17 War Bird from Rhode Island to Maine and is experienced in air acrobatics. Pilot Goyette is equipped to take passengers to witness and view the air deployment alongside Pilot Cassagneres.”
“In addition, we can station a vessel at a certain water based location near the intended air flight scattering path that the plane can fly over while dipping it’s wings in a full respect final air tribute salute while in full radio contact with the boat or ground so the family can hear the pilot’s reading of the final Captain’s prayer.”
NEBAS burials at sea are legal, approved per U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and EPA regulations and are easy to plan. For ash scatterings, NEBAS voyages out three nautical miles and the family scatters their loved ones cremated remains with a customized sea tribute service and returns to port all within about three hours.
All ash scattering rates include an official parchment sea and or air burial certificate marking the latitude and longitude of a loved ones’ final resting place and start at $495.00. Air scatterings are more.
NEBAS is the best known company in the nation for sea burials that uses only properly insured and licensed captains with current USCG certifications that only employ clean, safe and up to date vessels from Maine to Miami as well as San Francisco to San Diego. Vessels vary from vintage Maine down east style to sport or luxury level vessels accommodating up to 400 people.
According to Capt. White, “We are the best fully licensed and insured professional air scattering operation in the U.S., and the only one in New England, using a precise method of ash scattering by air. We can now offer a proper ‘Air Burial At Sea’ which is a truly great and final tribute to a loved one, especially one who loved flying.”
With a team that has over one hundred years of combined flying experience, White is proud to announce these new affiliations to continue the significant growth rate of the company by further expanding NEBAS services.
