McKinley) The flight features nearly two hours of air time over Denali National Park and approximately thirty minutes on the glacier. You'll see all Denali National Park has to offer: taiga forest, alpine tundra, deep gorges, countless mountain peaks and glacial features. This is truly a once in a life time adventure! Our De Havilland Turbine Beaver airplanes have window seats and interactive headsets for all. Fly Denali provides complimentary shuttle service within the Denali National Park area. Fly Denali operates from the Healy River State Airport from May 10th to September 15th and is available year-round for charters or contract work.

When we checked in they said the the glacier landing was cancelled because of thick fresh snow, they should have notified us earlier so we didn't waste time making a trip there.
