Paul dropped us (5 ski mountaineers) close to Mt Harris (a border peak with Canada) and picked us up a week later. We have nothing but great things to say about Paul, his plane and his operation. He was on time, obliging, and certainly knew the snow and how to fly the plane. His Beaver is immaculate, as is his... More

Amy met us with a beautiful smile as we disembarked our ship. She took us to the Haines airport where Paul had the airplane ready to go. As we entered the beautiful Beaver it was immediately apparent that "first class" was the way to describe the plane and its equipment. Also soon to become obvious was that the airplane was... More

Took the family on an Alaskan cruise and we booked this flight in advance leaving out of Skagway. Paul met us at the airport terminal which is an easy walk from the ship's pier. We rode in the Bush Hawk XP. It has great big windows so you see everything. Head sets were excellent and allowed for easy conversation throughout... More

The Glacier Bay NP flight seeing tour with Mountain Flying Service has been our Alaska highlight ! Paul is a super laid-back & cheerful guy, sharing lots of interesting facts with you and making the best out of your flight, that's for sure. If you want an unforgettable Glacier Bay viewing, that's the place to stop by :D Thanks again... More

This was a spur of the moment booking organised by the information office just after leaving the ship. It was an hours flight over the glaciers, mountains and rivers around Skagway. We got the bus into town (though it is easily walkable from the dock) and the same bus then took us to the airport, which is roughly only a... More

We flew with Paul of Mountain Flying Service twice, to and from Gustavus/Glacier Bay. Both flights were very scenic and Paul was informative about the area we flew through. On our return flight he took us a different route and got really close to a glacier. It looked like we could just reach out and touch the ice. He pilots... More

Absolutely phenomenal experience with Mountain Flying Service. Though I have a fear of heights I felt very comfortable and really enjoyed every minute of our flight over Glacier Bay. Will definitely do it again if I ever get another chance to visit Alaska.

Whatever you do when visiting SE Alaska don't miss this experience! Fantastic flight over Glacier Bay organised by Amy and delivered by Paul a very experienced pilot in his beautifully maintained plane with picture size windows which give great views of the glaciers and bay for every seat in the plane. Fly out of Haines or Skagway.

We think everyone should experience Mountain Flying Service and Paul our excellent, informative, and funny owner/pilot. It has been the highlight of our summer spent in Alaska. Also, we must thank Amy his wife for for being so efficient in scheduling our flight. Thanks again for a great trip.
