As everyone else has noted, we had a breeze booking the flight, and an amazing time flying with Paul. We had 4 teenagers and 3 adults with us. Pictures do not do justice. We saw mountain goats and a bear, not to mention amazing glaciers and landscapes. We booked to fly out of Skagway, and it was a super easy... More

We flew with Paul on a flight seeing tour of Glacier Bay. Amy was great in helping set up the flight. Paul is a great pilot and shared lots of info on the areas we flew over. It was an awesome flight. The plane was comfortable with large clear windows. Everyone had headsets that kept the noise down and allowed... More

The flight with Paul was the highlight of our vacation in Alaska. His knowledge of the area with his various stories made our trip great. Naturally the beauty of Alaska speaks for itself, the view from the air gives a whole new perspective. I highly recommend doing this trip in Skagway. The previous day we did the seaplane tour in...

Paul knows what he's doing ! We flew during a cloudy afternoon from skagway, hoping that we'll see something interesting... and we had way more than expected ! The glaciers were amazing, we circled a grizzli running in the snow, flew close by some moutain goats, spotted a couple of whales, and landed on a flat by the sea. Paul... More

We flew with Paul over the glaciers from Skagway and it was an awesome flight. The plane was in pristine condition and Paul was very knowledgeable of the area. We took a Cruise from Seattle and this was the highlight of our whole trip. I would highly recommend Mountain Flying Service.

As part of our Alaska cruise My wife and two 9 year old twins had the thrill of a lifetime! We wanted a pure Alaska experience and got that with more with Mountain Flying Service. Paul and Amy have incredible passion with sharing the views of Glacier Bay from their beautiful Aircraft. The simplicity and beauty of both the views... More

We recently visited Haines and had the pleasure of meeting Paul and Amy who between them made this part of our journey a memory we will always cherish. Flying with Paul around and over some of the most spectacular scenery on our planet in his Beaver was an experience that was not only spectacular but doubly so for me as... More

My wife and I were on our anniversary vacation in Haines (from nearby Whitehorse) when we called Paul about flying. Despite there only being two of us he said he would go anyway in his Beaver that has room for 7 passengers. His wife Amy joined us and we flew for three hours over spectacular glaciers and mountains. Both Paul... More

After spending a month in Alaska and Canada I had to say our flight with Paul was the highlight of the trip. We had booked the flight to Gustavus, B&B and Glacier Bay boat tour. If I ever have the opportunity to do it again I would bypass it all except the flightseeing. The flight over Davidson Glacier was spectacular!... More

Thanks for another great and unsolicited review! Trains and boats only let you see so much. You really have to get into the air and see Alaska by plane. More
