You might want to mention in future post that it helps us pilots if they can give us the distance in nautical miles so we know how far and how long a particular trip might take. Also, if they know the 3 letter airport ID (which non pilots may not know anything about) that would help also so we can look up those specific airports to find out pertinent information.

When I am speaking to rescues about a transport I will appear to be inconsistent with the selection of an airport. Sometimes it is important for me to use a large airport with good instrument approaches. Other times if weather is forecast to be very good I want to use the smaller airport with cheap fuel.
I also am looking to save fuel ($14,000 worth in 2009 for PNP) so if I can get a rescue to drive 50 miles closer to me, it may save me as much as $50 in fuel cost. So Steve's recommendation to put in your start and end locations is valid and as a pilot if gives me a starting point to determine which nearby airport is best for the transport (and me).

I couldn't post without having a recieving zip, so I just used the closest U.S. zip to their destination.
I hope this was okay.
Does anyone know if pilots fly that far North? (The Y.T., Canada)
