Booked Trail Ridge Air to provide transportation to Lake Clark NP for 2 groups of 5 backpackers on back-to back treks. From the first contact Jim was so easy to work with, taking 10 separate credit cards for the charter, helping answer questions about our route, river crossings, etc. When we arrived for our flight we received such great attention...

We booked Trail Ridge Air for our day trip to Redoubt Mountain Lodge. This looked like a very professional outfit who have been in the business for many years. They recommended the Redoubt trip as our best option to see bears and they were spot on. See my separate review of Redoubt Mountain Lodge. The flight was great. While the... More

My husband and I booked a flight seeing trip with Trail Ridge last minute and had a great time. We were in a tiny airplane, but had it all to ourselves! Dan, the pilot, was awesome and was very engaging throughout the trip. We went high into the hills and landed on a glacial lake. They provided snacks and water,... More

Professional. Friendly. Informative. Helpful. I can't recommend them high enough!! We felt safe and secure as we were escorted to Northwoods Lodge to begin a weekend in Heaven. Top-notch service. Hope to need you again next year!

I was on the flight with Sharon (who gave the below bad rating). The weather did deteriorate after take-off, but the pilot (Dan) did a very good job of keeping us safe, and in no way did ANYTHING wrong. Sharon did NOT deserve a refund! When you fly into the bush, you accept the possibility of rough flying weather.

Booked a float plane fishing trip in February to celebrate my son's university graduation. Called one week before to tell me that there was an emergency order by Alaska Fish & Game that their was no retention. Too late for me to reschedule, so we kept booking. Fished the day before the float trip and was told that there was... More

I chartered a DeHavilland Beaver from Trail Ridge Air to take my parents and their friends on a wildlife viewing trip of a lifetime. We flew to a secret location where we observed 3 brown bears fishing for spawning salmon. We saw Dall Sheep, Mountain Goats, Black Bear, Moose, as well as Beluga Whales on our trip to see the...

My husband and I visited Redoubt Mountain Lodge last year. The experience was so good, a photographer friend and I returned this year during peak bear season. Again, the lodge experience was outstanding (see my prior review) and our guide, Jess, was first-rate. However, we had a very bad time of it on our return flight from the lodge to... More

In the hands of an experienced float plane pilot, such as they have on Lake Hood (though not all on Lake Hood) the folks at TRA always had the most experienced, just ask me. I was a pilot there. If any of the pilots my age are still flying. You will have a trip of a life time. By the... More

We used TRA for transportation only (not flightseeing). They are terrific pilots and people. We felt safe and well cared for.
