Took one and a half hour flight to Mount McKinley and Glaciers early September. Highly recommend. Randy our pilot was excellent enhancing our experience with expert commentary. Office staff looked after our baggage and also drove us to the station at the end of the flight. Would do this again if in Alaska.

What an amazing ride! We had booked our flight for a Saturday afternoon, however the weather was not at its best so our flight was cancelled for that day. We were a little disappointed and worried that we may not be able to fly. We were booked again for Sunday morning and to our surprise it was the most gorgeous... More

My wife and I did a flight with K2 kind of on a whim. We had planned to do lots of hiking in Denali, and along the Kesugi ridge in Denali State Park. But 2 weeks before our visit I broke my leg -- so the hiking option was gone. The morning we arrived in Talkeetna, the weather was nice,... More

We want to express our appreciation to Chip Sonn, our K2 pilot for our fantastic late afternoon/evening flight excursion while recently visiting Talkeetna, Alaska. As part of our planned Land/Cruise tour, we did not want to miss this opportunity – and glad that we took the extra effort to reschedule through the cruise planning offices to get all 5 of... More

The K2 flight with glacier landing was the highlight of our Alaska visit. We did it on our first day and if I would have gone home after the first day it would have been worth it!!!! Jeff Babcock was our pilot and has 35 years experience. He was so fun and nice and gave us great information. I was... More

We are so grateful that we took our friends' recommendation to fly with K2 Aviation. The air tour truly was the highlight of our Alaskan vacation. A family business with decades of experience, K2 offers breathtaking views of snow-covered mountains and glaciers, narrated by knowledgeable pilots on various sizes of aircraft. We were on a 10-seater that flew around three... More

K2 Aviation provided our group of four with an awesome experience when in Alaska. My husband is a private pilot and he was incredibly impressed with this outfit and with the experience. For him to say this was the best flight experience he has EVER had, is saying something. Our pilot was awesome - we saw great views of Denali... More

We were lucky and got our plain ride. We heart that the majority of the trips are cancelled due to clouds and winds. Booked through travel agancy, had private transportation, so cant say anything about their own pick up service. We sat further back in the plain and made good pictures, u dont NEEEED to sit in the front.

This was the high light of our Alaska vacation. It was breath taking from takeoff to landing. We had a bright clear day for flying and it was a blast. Do this if you don't do anything else !!!

We were hesitant to book the glacier landing because of cost and generally limited weather related opportunity to see Mt McKinley. The day we went was cloudy and McKinley was not viewable. This was a great trip nonetheless and photos are fantastic.
