Very enjoyable flight-seeing trip around the mountains and glaciers. The extra landing is worth the extra $. We were lucky to have landed at the time that wild strawberries were ripe for eating, right off the plant. Great experience. Drake is very personable, knowledgeable, likeable, and full of information about the surrounding area.

Fantastic flight!! As a pilot myself with 41 years of aviation experience, I endorse Drake to be your Alaskan pilot for the authentic Alaskan experience. For the once in a lifetime flight that you will want to repeat....I trust Drake.

I'm a professional outdoor and wildlife photographer and have traveled extensively over the last 20 years in the North (Alaska, Yukon, Norway). I enjoy shooting ice and glaciers. Flying with Drake was the best, by far, of any of the over 30 flight seeing photo shoots I've done. After telling Drake what i wanted, he brought me to the most... More

Our flight with Drake over Glacier Bay was the most exhilarating experience of not only our Alaskan cruise, but of our lives! Drake is an exceptional pilot, and ensured that we were having a great time! His fun personality was an added bonus to our tour, and we had an amazing 2-hour flight with him. The best part was landing... More

Hands down the best part of my trip! Words cannot describe the natural splendor, but what really makes the trip is that Drake will put you at ease with his approachable and friendly manner. He knows all the best spots and will treat you to breathtaking views. If you are curious about the geography, geology, and weather systems, he's full... More

If you're visiting Southeast Alaska, this is a must do. Drake, a former racecar driver, has been flying around Glacier Bay for twenty years and probably knows the terrain better than anyone. He obviously takes pride in his machines and skill as a pilot and it shows. This was far and above the highlight of my trip and I'll definitely... More

Drake is a high quality pilot, and has an expansive knowledge of the mountains around Haines. He will provide you with an excellent flight seeing trip or access to an expedition you have. Contact him if you are serious about flying with him and he will make all your efforts worthwhile. Don't be discouraged by any negative interactions, he is... More

By the end of August 2014 we had a great flightseeing experience with Drake (Fly Drake) from Skagway. The airport is easily accesible from the cruise terminal. When you contact him, don't worry if he might hesitate from making it really fix: Flights over a glacier are visual and your personal benefit depends a lot of unpredictable weather conditions.

This review is long overdue! My husband and I went on a cruise to Alaska in May 2014 and we knew the #1 thing we wanted to do was go on a sightseeing tour over the glaciers.. Nothing could have prepared us for the incredible day we had with Drake! He is an amazing pilot! I felt completely comfortable with... More

If you want a good pilot with a wealth of knowledge than Drake Olson is the man to see. Safe and well maintained aircraft. Planes are clean and comfortable. Best prices in town. Drake has a great sense of humor. Whether you only fly once or a number of times with him you will always see something different. Check out... More
