I wasn't impressed at first - the owners seemed very uninterested in accepting business. I had tried to go with the other company in town (McCarthy Air Service) that seemed much more excited about flying, but the flight I had hoped for was cancelled by other clients. Myself & another walk-in guest had to push for Wrangell Mountain Air to put us in the air. However, once we we took off, I was highly impressed.
The pilot was friendly, outgoing, and knowledgeable. He asked us what we wanted to see, and customized the flight to meet our needs. The scenery was of course spectacular, and I appreciated his efforts to show us some great areas. 90 minutes wasn't long enough.
Because I had an afternoon activity scheduled with St. Elias Guides, the pilot and owner in the office communicated regularly with SEAG to make sure that my afternoon adventure would still happen, since the flight was delayed. They then took me directly to Kennicott for that activity. I was especially surprised and impressed that they did all this before I had paid anything. I never ended up paying until the evening when I made it back to McCarthy!
Flightseeing in Wrangell St. Elias is less expensive than Denali, and ultimately more rewarding because the scenery is even more spectacular. GO!
