Take a flight our float planes to the real Alaska whether flight seeing glaciers and mountains, bear viewing at remote lodges and national parks or fly in fishing. We've been flying people to Alaska's wilderness since 1963; located at Lake Hood in Anchorage, Alaska.

From the shuttle, check in desk to pilot all are very friendly. They took good care of us and were very efficient. Take offs and landings are smoother than a commercial flight! I would use them again.
