“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

The flight with Paul was the highlight of our vacation in Alaska. His knowledge of the area with his various stories made our trip great. Naturally the beauty of Alaska speaks for itself, the view from the air gives a whole new perspective. I highly recommend doing this trip in Skagway. The previous day we did the seaplane tour in Juneau, but Paul's flight was light years ahead of that. I recommend doing the "landing" on the shore across from Haines. Take in the sights from another perspective that most of the cruise ship passengers will never see. Plus if you have kids they can take turns sitting in the front seat. I hope to run into Pual when he winters in AZ and certainly hope to get back to Skagway/Haines to do another flight. Great job Mountain Flying Service!

“Fabulous !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Paul knows what he's doing ! We flew during a cloudy afternoon from skagway, hoping that we'll see something interesting... and we had way more than expected ! The glaciers were amazing, we circled a grizzli running in the snow, flew close by some moutain goats, spotted a couple of whales, and landed on a flat by the sea. Paul was very nice, and knowledgeable, and you can see he takes care of his plane, The overall experience was great, highly recommended !

“Great Flight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We flew with Paul over the glaciers from Skagway and it was an awesome flight. The plane was in pristine condition and Paul was very knowledgeable of the area. We took a Cruise from Seattle and this was the highlight of our whole trip. I would highly recommend Mountain Flying Service.

“Trip into Glacier Bay Alaska”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

As part of our Alaska cruise My wife and two 9 year old twins had the thrill of a lifetime!

We wanted a pure Alaska experience and got that with more with Mountain Flying Service. Paul and Amy have incredible passion with sharing the views of Glacier Bay from their beautiful Aircraft. The simplicity and beauty of both the views and De Havilland Beaver were almost spiritual!

My wife and children felt totally comfortable and safe with Paul and the immaculate De Havilland. Beach landing in a remote island near Haines capped off a great time. Bring cameras or IPhones or IPads to capture moments of a lifetime.
