I am an inactive pilot and my wife and I were both active in the Civil Air Patrol and are familiar with general aviation. We will transport by car cats or possibly a small dog.
Points to Consider:
-We are reluctant to transport a small dog because we only drive a Prius. The dog must have a good leash and harness (good collar is acceptable) or we will not accept him for transport.
-Pets should not be fed the day of transport.
-We need a good contact phone number and email address. If I have trouble contacting you, then that is a good indication that we are not a good fit.
-At some point it just is not worth it for us to transport by car. We definitely will not consider over 200 miles one way with a pet.
-Coordination is needed before we get involved. Contacting the drop off and pick up person is no problem, but we will no longer deal with people not willing to continuously coordinate.
