Fly Denali offers one of the world's most unique and breathtaking experiences - a landing on one of Denali's glaciers! (formerly Mt. McKinley) The flight features nearly two hours of air time over Denali National Park and approximately thirty minutes on the glacier. You'll see all Denali National Park has to offer: taiga forest, alpine tundra, deep gorges, countless mountain peaks and glacial features. This is truly a once in a life time adventure! Our De Havilland Turbine Beaver airplanes have window seats and interactive headsets for all. Fly Denali provides complimentary shuttle service within the Denali National Park area. Fly Denali operates from the Healy River State Airport from May 10th to September 15th and is available year-round for charters or contract work.

Hello ionabound m, We are sincerely apologetic that you were not able to fly with us. Unfortunately, weather conditions here in Alaska can change rather quickly and 2016 was an exceptionally rainy season. Though the weather is our of our control, we hate to miss out on an opportunity to take our passengers on their "once in a lifetime" glacier... More

We had a mostly clear day and the view was spectacular. Our pilot, Ben, gave an informative running commentary during the flight. Landing on the glacier is an experience I'll never forget.

This was pretty much the best experience of my life, and I have done some crazy things. At first, I was very hesitant about the cost - which was almost as much as I paid to get from Virginia to Alaska. We originally had a flight booked via Talkeetna Air Taxi, but the weather was awful, so the trip was... More

From the moment we got in the van to the plane we knew safe as well as fun were important to the Fly Denali. Our pilot Ben was informative. We had amazing air views and were blown away with our time on the Glacier. Thanks for an unforgettable day!

From hotel pickup to return is about four hours. We took the last flight of the day, and got into the air about 6:00 pm. It's a 50-minute flight to Denali itself, which is about 80 miles from the small airport and inaccessible any other way. We landed on the glacier at 7260 feet, which is the base camp for... More

My husband and I booked an early morning flight on 9/4. Words cannot describe the experience. From beginning to end, the service was great. All the staff were very friendly. Trent was our pilot and he was fabulous! Made everyone very comfortable. He was very knowledgable of the area, the mountain ranges. We landed on Eldridge Glacier. Smooth landings and... More
