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... Thank... More

My wife, my 82 year old father-in-law and myself took a flight with Fly Drake on 9/2/13. We had booked a Glacier Bay flight departing from Skagway. We communicated with Drake the day prior and he reminded us that the flight would be weather permitting. The morning of, we spoke to Drake by phone again and moved the time back... More

Our experience with Fly Drake could not have been better. From the start when he picked us up in town to the end when my son couldn't stop laughing at his jokes, Drake was first class. The experience is phenomenal as anyone who flies over glaciers will tell you, but the fair price, the service, the communication and the attitude... More

One of the greatest things to do in Southeast Alaska is fly with a local. Now, to be fair, there are the regular scenic cookie-cutter packages and then there is flying that is different from what you will ever experience in your life. My good friend and I recently had a chance to fly with Drake Olson located in Haines,... More

Guess a perma grin is part of the whole adventure!!! This is TRULY the best way to see Alaska and Drake Olson the best pilot to... More

The highlight of our trip to Haines was our ride with Drake. The views were magnificent and the music played during our flight was perfect. Drake is a great pilot and lots of fun. We plan to go back and the first thing we are going to schedule is another flight with Drake. We got some great pictures. Thanks so... More

My wife and I had a great experience with Drake. He flies out of the airport in Skagway. You can walk there is 10 minutes from the cruise ship docking.He is a safe, accomplished and skillful pilot who shared much information while we took in the sights of the glaciers. We also did a landing on a gravel strip by... More

If you want to experience the vast wilderness we have around Haines there is no better pilot than Drake. I have lived in Alaska for over 15 years and have spent numerous hours in the air with many different pilots-including Mountain Flying Service in Haines. I can say honestly say Drake is a cut above the rest. It is a... More

I was on a May 2010, not 7/2012 as shown below, climbing expedition to climb Mt. Fairweather in Glacier Bay NP. We had 8 climbers and thousands of pounds of gear requiring at least 8 trips to the base camp on the glacier at the base of the mountain. Drake did a great job coordinating with another pilot to get... More

This man is for real! He truly is an amazing Alaska wilderness professional. What he is able to do with his airplanes completely blew my mind, and I can say without a single doubt that flying with him was one of the most incredible experiences of my life! There is a high probability that I will be returning to Haines... More
