Both of these lakes can have high unforecast winds pop up.  If this happens you might have to wait for pick up. (Use your satellite phone) You should not plan a day fishing trip without being aware and prepared for the vagaries of Alaska weather.

$550 per flight. I.e. $1100 for fly-in drop off and pickup, Due to mechanical difficulty currently using smaller airplane. If I need to make two trips to get you in and out, NO EXTRA CHARGE!

Please read the following carefully and maybe read it twice! 

We sincerely want you to enjoy your Alaskan wilderness adventure. The key word here wilderness. We have been flying into the various Forrest Service cabins and mountain lakes in our area for 28 years now. Each year it seems we have one or two clients that, well maybe they should not consider a fly out in the Alaskan wilderness.

Please recognize that this is wild unpredictable Alaska Bush flying.  Our pilots are highly skilled and have a 100% safety record.

The rate is for one flight in and one flight out. Safety is paramount!  Our pilots have the sole decision making responsibility to land or not. To drop you off or not.  If weather i.e. winds, rain, low ceilings prevent us from getting you out in one trip you are expected to pay for an additional trip.  How can this be?  Every lake with a cabin on it that you want to fly out to is very remote and in the mountains. The reason you want to go there.

Rarely. Only once last year we had to split the return trip into two flights due to winds.  So it happens. Be prepared, if you are the one to PAY!  I only wish that you could be in our ops office when we are trying to make the go-no-go decision to pick you up. The man hours involved, decision discussions, phone calls to FAA weather, etc. can take hours. Sometimes days. All for your and our safety.

None of the above is meant to dissuade you from your Alaska Adventure.  It is only my weak attempt to better inform.


Please conform to the following suggestions:

  1. Plan, research, be prepared, physically, mentally, recognizing you are leaving civilization. Once you get dropped off you are on your own.


   2. During time our C-206 is Max weight per flight is 450-500#, Pack light.  

      Like a backpacker. You do  not need to haul in everything. 


   3. Everything you bring MUST be in flexible duffle type bags. Preferably waterproof.

      Bags should be approx. 30#. Bear spray must be in waterproof bag and put in float locker.

      Our smaller floatplane is  difficult to load and offload. Be prepared to help. Hip boots are a good idea

      or get wet. The remote lakes do not have loading docks.

   4. Satellite Phone…We will not fly you out if you do not have a Satellite phone.  The reasonable cost of rent is a

      small, compared to the cost to pay for and extra flight when you could have called and told us not to come..

      Last season we had two emergency pickups requested because they had satellite phone.

      That could have been disastrous if the client had not got to a hospital.  

      Satellite phones are a “Safety First” item in your travel plans.


      *****Please do not hesitate to call me personally for additional information. 


Hope to see you in Alaska.
