The plane was smaller than I expected but our pilot Hawk did an amazing job. He was calm and professional, making us feel calm and helping us to enjoy our mountain views. His story telling made it seem historical and yet personal. The team picked...More

A 40-year Kantishna Air Taxi veteran was our skilled pilot when a couple of new friends from Australia and I took a "flight-seeing" trip around the magnificent Denali, the highest mountain peak in North America. Smooth sailing all the way, with awesome views. Unforgettable.
