My girlfriend and I booked a flight with MFS and very pleased with the very personable service provided. Both of us felt we had already made two new friends before our cruise ship docked in Haines. We were lucky to have a wind-free sunny day and Paul was able to point out and identify points of interest from our almost... More

Since our Alaska cruise did not go to Glacier Bay National Park, we searched for another way to see it. We found Mountain Flying Service. They fly out of Skagway and Haines. We took the one-hour flight over Glacier Bay. It was spectacular. I think it must be better to see the whole glorious landscape from the air than down... More

The highlight of my cruise to Skagway AK! Paul and Amy made everything so easy. Emails to plan the flight were returned promptly. Communications on the day of the flight happened as planned. The airport is within walking distance from the pier. The weather was not ideal so Paul changed the flight accordingly. We had a safe and amazing experience.... More

Went flying with Paul. Amy was obliging in shuttling us to the airport. Paul's skills when flying enabled us to see the glaciers in Glacier Bay giving us a fantastic view. A delightful experience and one that we would highly recommend on your visit to Haines

You will not be disappointed trusting Paul with a flight seeing trip in his beyond beautiful DeHavilland Beaver. A long time friend, my 12 year old daughter and myself were cruising to Alaska and flying in a bush plane was a must do for us. I had called around prior to the cruise and was sold with Paul after talking... More

My husband and I took a fabulous flightseeing tour with Paul during a cruise stop in Skagway. We had great weather conditions as we flew from Skagway down to Gustavus and back with awesome views and breathtaking scenery flying over Glacier Bay. The DeHavilland Beaver is impeccably maintained and was a delight to fly. You can see Paul's pride in... More

We had an amazing afternoon with Paul flying over the glaciers in Glacier Bay. Paul is so knowledgeable and really provided an amazing experience for our family. Making the reservation with Amy was smooth and easy. A great company to work with. You will not be disappointed.

Begin with the booking & meet Amy: the excitement starts here. She's bright , informative , warm and makes you know you've made the right decision by calling MFS. The pilot, Paul , is no less a star. From the moment you meet him you begin to relax and appreciate the adventure at hand. During the flight you immediately experience... More

Flying over Glacier Bay with Paul was the highlight of our family trip to Alaska. The views were amazing, the plane clean and stable, great views of wildlife and the pilot friendly. We couldn't have asked for it to be any better!

My daughter (11) and I set out on an adventure through se Alaska and stayed in Haines two nights. We had three things stand out on that section of our trip, this was one of them. Paul & Amy with mt flying were the best. We even landed on the beach at the Pacific ocean. That was amazing.
