I would like to thank everyone involved from turning a potentially difficult experience into an enjoyable one. My mother,Mary, and I enjoyed the flight, and the flight nurse, was terrific. He really allayed all our fears, and we felt perfect confidence in him.
The pilot and first officer were also wonderful and instilled great confidence in us. All in all, it was a marvelous trip and we can’t thank you enough!!!
This letter commends the efficiency and professionalism of your organization during the recent transport of our aunt, Lisa Cordero, from New York City to Cleveland. The flight crew was courteous and helpful. Your flight coordinators were exceptionally competent in arranging a quite difficult transfer.
Where we have had frustrations with lawyers, bankers, and doctors, we had only the most ‘can do’ attitude from all of your staff. We have recommended your service to a colleague and will continue to do so without hesitation.
