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.

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.

We visited Alaska in June, 2009 and ended our time there with a flightseeing trip. We chose Trail Ridge Air for our adventure and were very pleased! (Thanks Dan!) We saw all types of wildlife including moose, whales, seals and bears! This was the absolute highlight of our time in Anchorage. If we visit Alaska again we will be visiting... More
