Traveling back & forth between Charlevoix and Beaver Island requires either a 2 hour ferry crossing over Lake Michigan or a plane ride which lasts 20 minutes from start to finish.

The flight to Beaver Island is so much quicker than the ferry which is great for me since I get so motion sick. Fresh Air made it easy. Friendly staff and pilots. Nice planes. The airport on the island is beautiful too! It looks like an upscale log cabin. Really couldn't ask for much more. I will always use these... More

Always have a great flight. It's a wonderful way to get to the island and back to the mainland. Reasonably priced. The staff is friendly.

I have had the opportunity to fly with Fresh Air for years when we return to Beaver Island each summer and again in the fall, and am never disappointed.

Flying on Fresh Air is always a pleasant experience. You can haul what you need without restrictions of significance, keep your pet on your lap and have your car waiting for you when you return. If only all flying experiences could be so simple!

Came up for the second year in a row to visit friends on the island. The 4th of July weekend is the best! Great weather, food, friends, fishing, beach combing, etc. Service was exceptional. Keith and Rachel are super friendly and accommodating. Would never fly with any one else.

We flew Fresh Air to Beaver Island for a friend's wedding. We took the smaller plane and before the flight I was a little nervous but the pilot, Keith let me sit upfront with him and it was amazing. Friendly service and great experience. Will definitely use them again!
