|Alaska Bush Pilot Experience
1 or 2+ Hours Including Transfers
Experience the life of an Alaska bush pilot!
Superb scenery, stops at fascinating outposts, and a true bush pilot experience are yours on this unique way to see the real Alaska! You are invited to join us on one of our daily scheduled mail, freight, and passenger flights into secluded wilderness areas. Flights are made to one of 18 communities provided with US Mail service via Taquan Air. Communities include historic native villages, remote camps, and colorful fishing towns. Stops at such locations as Thorne Bay, a timber harvesting community located in a scenic bay, the native village of Hydaburg, once a reservation, and remote residences in the Behm Canal, near historic Loring, could be included on your chosen route. You will fly over some of the most beautiful tree-clad mountainous areas in the sprawling 16.8 million acre Tongass National Forest. The nation's largest forest is filled with numerous islands, most of which are uninhabited, that are intertwined with pristine bays and sounds. Your pilot will identify points of interest and any wildlife sighted along the way. All landings will be made in hidden harbors and sheltered inlets. Shortly after dropping off any mail, supplies, or passengers, the flight will continue onto the next destination. Each stop could become a unique photography opportunity for the nature lover and photographer with some flights including up to four stops. There is no better way to experience our way of life and to meet friendly back-country Alaskans in their environment.
