We went up with Drake in weather that couldn't quite make its mind up, but once we got up there it really cleared up. The view from the plane is incredible and Drake was awesome. We felt totally safe the whole time and spent the whole trip in complete amazement at the views. Thanks Drake, we'll be back for sure!... More

July 03, 2014 we went Fly Fishing in Haines, AK. Looked like we would have issues getting back to Skagway to board our cruise ship that day. Our Fishing Guide Greg, got ahold of Drake and next thing you know we are up in the Air over the Glaciers before returning to the Ship. Drake gave us the Tour that... More

I stumbled upon Drake while in Haines a few nights hoping to find an instructor to fly with. I wandered around the Haines airport and found an open hangar where he was working on one of his planes. I immediately recognized him as one of the bush pilots featured in the National Geographic channel's Alaska Wing Men. He was immediately... More

We were in Skagway on 9th June on a cruise on the Zaandam, and we wanted to do a flight over the glaciers. We were recommended to contact Drake by one of the tour guides on Alaska Excursions, so we called up, and Drake was able to take us and another guy up that afternoon from Skagway airport. It was...

My wife and I were in haines off the Oosterdam on June 4. while in the visitor center a couple asked us if we wanted to go flying over glaciers. We agreed and the four of us were treated to a fantastic flight in wonderful weather! Drake was very passionate about his profession. Earlier that morning there was a 5.8... More

Drake is a professional who really cares about his clients. The four of us had a fantastic flight between Gustavus and Skagway! Drake had told us he would not know for sure which route he would have to take, dependent on the weather. But he was able to fly us through/over the mountains, including a breathtaking side trip up to... More

FlyDrake caught our eye months before our cruise on the Inside Passage - our first cruise and our first trip to AK. So VERY glad we booked with Drake Olson! He was easy to work with, true to his word on what we could do and see. It was the highlight of our trip. 3 people per flight was perfect... More

We utilized Fly Drake to fly us out and back on a mountain climbing expedition to Mt. Fairweather May 20, 2014 to May 30, 2014. I have flown with several bush pilots in both Alaska and Canada, but this was the best experience ever. Drake was extremely professional and had not only our safety in mind, but he also made... More

He is BY FAR the best pilot and excursion flight you must pick if you intend to live a life experience you will NEVER FORGET! DON'T underestimate the value of this excursion just because he has a smaller plane and is a self employed business pilot... Jocelyne and I are soooooooo happy we picked his company in july 2013...
