When I first started thinking about this excursion Paul and Amy were so helpful and informative. Great people to work with. At first we thought maybe the price was a little high for our budget for 4 people. But it was the best money I spent on this vacation. Paul met us promptly at 3:15 at the airport. We were... More

As a pilot myself, I was sincerely impressed with how well Pual has restored and maintains his 1953 Beaver airplane. It is like brand new. Incredible. And he provides Bose headsets for everyone which are extremely comfortable and top of the line - very nice touch! And the views and beauty of the flight itself is way beyond words. Paul... More

Paul and Amy are amazing. They helped with a shore excursion when the cruise ship excursion was full. They were friendly. They accommodated our schedule. They were travel agents and tour guides rolled into one. We had the best flight and made new friends in a short time.

I will not try to add to all recent reports. We were up there for getting on to 2 hours on a beautiful sunny morning and so at this point throw any superlative adjective you like at this flight of a lifetime. My wife is not a lover of planes, so to see her looking enthralled with it all as... More

Found the aircraft to be exceptional condition and a very experienced pilot that exceptional. He really got a laugh out of the our wives chit chat will telling all of us about the glaciers we were flying over. The view of the glaciers was just incredible, which makes this a must see experience while your in Alaska. After we returned... More

Paul with Mountain Flying Services was recommended from a friend to take a flight for sight seeing Glacier Bay during a cruise that had a stop in Skagway. Paul was a pleasure to ride with in a well maintained and clean airplane. He was very informative with his knowledge of the area, having been flying the area for over 24... More

As a former pilot, I checked this set up out carefully, and was very attracted both by the aircraft and the experience of the pilot. That is not to overlook Amy, who managed us very well throughout. We took the #2 trip, about 1 hr 40 out of Haines, and it was fantastic. We got to see dozens of glaciers,... More

The highlight of our Alaska trip! The office was an easy walk from the tour ship dock. We arranged the trip privately. Amy was so easy to work with and familiar with the cruise ship schedules. Paul was not only a great pilot, he narrated the flight over Glacier Bay and expanded on his answers to our questions to provide... More

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. To fly over the Glaciers and see the beauty of Alaska was incredible.
