He wasn't only a customer her was more like family. God knows he has a wonderful person with him in heaven.

I will always remember AUBREY EMMETT as a true friend of mine, as well as the FBI, whom I admired and respected greatly. I have many fond memories of the several year period Aubrey and his crew hosted myself and other FBI Pilots on the flight line at Dobbins AFB, where we kept our Bureau aircraft and where Aubrey was the flight line supervisor. Aubrey was a giant of a man, of impeccable character, outgoing and witty personality, and at ALL times, helpful, kind, cheerful and friendly to me and my FBI pilot associates. Aubrey will me missed dearly by ALL who knew and cared for him. Rest In Peace, my friend! 🇺🇸🙏
