Change Is In The AIR

Have you noticed that just about everybody who is anybody has a “PA” these days? The corporate flight attendant works closely with his or her client’s PA to make sure they can provide the support on the road that the client needs when the PA can’t be there. We become their extension, a sort of PA in the air, if you will. Our company started out quite humbly by stepping in to fill an unmet need in private aviation. We took highly trained corporate flight attendants and gave them additional training in pet first aid and nutrition as well as pet in-flight safety protocols to provide a safe, secure environment for clients traveling with their pets. Over time we added layers of service and became more of a personal assistant to our clients and found ourselves flying more and more missions with ...

A Thief in the Night

We talk a lot about K9 cancer here… How to recognize it, how to fight it, how to help with the fight and how to live with it. Some days though, it just gets personal. This is one of those days. Last night, Hemangiosarcoma stopped by and paid a visit to one of our dear pack members. You never leave the porch light on for Hemangiosarcoma, rather it shows up uninvited and sneaks in through an unlocked window and steals your most valued treasure. With other cancers you see them coming, or at least you know you’re living in kind of a bad neighborhood. This one? BAM! One strike and you’re out. It happened with our very first dog, Bob, and we had never even considered cancer so when the vet ran that long word by us it didn’t even stick. I have to admit, I couldn’t te ...

From Both Sides NOW

Hey efurrypawdy, Buddy here.  Yup, rub your eyes and blink a few times and then look again.  It’s ME!  I’ve been pretty lucky since crossing over, I have a very liberal “hall pass” system and get to come back and forth a lot and break through for important missions.  Of course I gotta tell ya, the force was strong with me even when I was on earth and I could kind of come and go as I pleased.  You just can’t believe what your mind can do if you just open it up a bit… but I digress.  Heaven on earth, Heaven in Heaven; it’s a fine blurry line!  Every time I come back fur a visit, everyone sends messages back with me and tries to get a little more of an idea what the bridge is like.  It finally dawned on me that you can’t see us like we can see y ...

Christmas Presence

Hey efurrypawdy, Maxx here.  I’m still working on finding my voice, but I have noticed something this Holiday season that I gotta share.  Now let me remind  you, I’m a dog.  Ok, take a moment and recover, it’s true.  Here’s a picture of me, well, being a dog: Yup, I’m wearing the forest here.  But I digress.  So dogs learn slowly about the holidays.  We don’t much care if you celebrate Christmas or Hannukkah or Kwanzaa or the Solstice or refuse to celebrate. We have noticed folks just getting crazy this time of year shopping fur the perfect gift. Crazy right? And then one day I was walking in the forest where I had gathered all of that glorious greenery that Mommers promptly removed when we returned home, and we came upon an awesome sight.  Right in the ...

Importance of the Third Crewmember

Surprisingly we are still having discussions about the importance of a third crewmember on large cabin aircraft. Perhaps we have been discussing points that are simply too obvious and need to consider some of the benefits of a third crewmember that nobody really wants to think about. The things we are trained to do and keep current on, are often things nobody wants to talk about in everyday conversation. The things we think about during every takeoff and landing would make many passengers a bit nervous. Most would rather focus on our ability to prepare world-class cuisine and make the bedding look really pretty. These are private jets where no expense has been spared to have the very best provisions for safety and security. Many are equipped with a Tempus unit *, defibrillator, MedAire sub ...
