They made our engagement perfect with a helicopter tour around the peninsula. They helped with every detail and we could not have been any happier!!!

I took a Helicopter Tour with them this week to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Totally amazing and incredible, emotional experience. I have never been up in a helicopter and I think it's normal to maybe have ...a little fear but as soon as the pilot took us up it was smooth sailing! I would recommend this to everyone! See More

Great service and an amazing price! We loved our short ride today and look forward to another visit in the future. Our pilot was so friendly and the customer service here is excellent. The lady who t...ook our call was so polite with all of our questions and even accommodated a last minute booking for us. See More

A beautiful article about TVC's beautiful team. RIP Piper- never to be forgotten.

Two years after the border collie went viral, he chased his last snowy owl from the Michigan airport where he worked.

Our community has lost a legacy, a protector, a happy soul. Sweet Piper- we are grateful for your hard work with your human, Brian Edwards. Thank you for your smiles, your high fives, and chasing away all of those birds to protect our families! RIP sweet dog!

Pure Michigan lost a good dog this week. Here's a look back at some favorite memories of Piper's work leading the Cherry Capital Airport K-9 Team:

With heavy hearts, we shed tears at the news of our sweet friend Piper. He will be missed so much. We were honored to know you, sweet boy. We offer our sincerest condolences to his best friend, and companion, Brian. Thank you, Piper... you made millions of people smile! You are forever etched into hearts worldwide. #bestbordercollie

Friends,

It is with the ultimate sadness I must report the passing of my best friend and love of my life.

Piper passed away tonight peacefully in my arms after ...fighting a year-long battle with prostate cancer. He fought valiantly, and we did everything we could, but sometimes life just has to take its course.

Today, Piper enjoyed a pain-free day, filled with love from family and friends, mostly his fellow airport employees. He played soccer, got some much deserved butt scratches and yes, he chased away one last snowy owl as he sailed into the night.

As I hope was plainly evident, we are grateful. Grateful to have done what we loved for three years and had a whole hell of a lot of fun doing it. Mostly though, we're grateful for all of your support. It's what's really helped us through the dark days.

As we leave you tonight, know that Piper is in a better place. I only ask for your patience as I take time to tend to my shattered heart.

Lastly, as a final act of true class, the flag you see here draped over Piper's body flew today at U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City and was taken down, folded and presented to us and a token of their love. Please join me in thanking the men and women, past and present, of Air Station Traverse City for their awesomeness. Piper and I are forever in your debt.

With love,

Brian & Piper

Great Big Story

Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, cooler than a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce, it's Piper, the Aviation Bird Dog at Cherry Capital Airport K-9 Team. Waterfowl don't stand a chance.
