“Expensive but worth every penny”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

We were in Talkeetna during a beautiful clear day and decided to take advantage of it by taking a flight to Denali. For us, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity so it was important to get it right. Everyone at Talkeetna Air Taxi took great care of us and most of all, made sure we were safe. We flew right to Denali (Mt McKinley) and landed on the glacier. It was incredible. The pilot did a great job of pointing out all the great point of interest. But again, more than anything, we felt safe.

“Absolutely perfect flying trip!”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

We wanted to get out on the Iditarod Trail to visit a couple of musher friends in the race. TAT was very helpful in making it happen for us. Flexible scheduling--going to two checkpoints--, friendly people, wonderful and knowledgable pilot, Jonathan, made this a great trip. Highly recommend this flight service. I know I'll be flying with them again to land at Denali base camp.

“What a great experience.”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

We had no clue, but the guy on the corner seemed nice enough. He didn't lie when he said that Talkeetna Air Taxi was the way to experience the mountain. He took us ap and showed us amazing views from every angle. The landing on the mountain was as calm as could be, His knowledge and demeanor was excellent. We had a great time and never felt rushed or crowded. When we saw what the other companies were doing, and how many people per plane, and length of stay on the mountain, we definitely made the right choice.

“Awesome Experience with very flexible staff”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

The plane ride itself was beyond belief. The scenery was spectacular. The pilot offered tidbits of information and was quite personable. He even let us sit in the copilot seat!
Upon our arrival, the staff informed us that the weather was too bad to fly. We could cancel, or wait until the next day. We waited, and were able to call first, to check on weather. The next day's weather was bad on the ground, but good up at Denali. The staff encouraged us to wait it out, until the fog lifted. They had a nice area with coffee and couches, a deck and restroom facilities. The wait was not too long, and off we went for the ride of our lives. Highly recommend!!!!
