Aerial Ash Scattering service

A lovely way to celebrate the life of your loved one; scatter their ashes over the beautiful Cambridgeshire fields and countryside in a unique and dignified manner. Cambridge Aero Club aerial Ash Scattering service was created to provide clients with the opportunity to celebrate a friend or family member’s life in a memorable way.

At the cost of £250, three passengers plus pilot will fly in a C182, four-seater aircraft outfitted with a unique device designed to carry and release ashes. Flying within a 10 mile radius of Cambridge Airport allows you to enjoy a wide array of beautiful spots to scatter ashes. If you would like to fly further afield, we will gladly accommodate your request at additional add-ons (quoted individually).

As a reputable flight school, Cambridge Aero Club is recognised for decades of dedicated and professional flying services, and we look forward to helping you create a memorable experience.
