The flight was amazing, something none of us will ever forget, a special private tour that was the highlight of our trip. I've never posted a review before, but Drake merits special consideration. His flight, a tour for just three of us, was longer than other cattle-call excursions for the same price, and better, because we LANDED ON THE GLACIER!... More

We are a family of five, and we went flying with Drake during our one day in Skagway on our Alaskan cruise. It was hands down the highlight of our entire vacation. Drake is an amazing pilot with amazing knowledge of the area. Words cannot describe the majesty of the mountains and glaciers he showed us. We did a remote... More

Drake gave us a surprise yet wonderful experience on the plane and stop on the glacier mountaintop. I enjoyed his top class music and the breathtaking bird view. Also we had so much fun landed on the mountaintop. I felt like we were in the space, without worldly noise, the moment was frozen too. We fall on the soft snow,... More

As a business owner in Haines Alaska, I have never flown with Drake. I have however taken people to his hanger for his flights. Without exception, they return with only praise for his ability and the scenery he presented to them. He takes friends of mine up into the mountains and drops them off on the glaciers or will drop...

We had such a wonderful experience with FlyDrake on the 6th July 2015. Drake gave us that once in a lifetime real Alaskan experience. He showed us the most amazing glaciers, lakes and ice landscapes. We took some amazing photos! This is the only way to see the real Alaska. What really enhanced the whole experience was Drake’s in depth... More

Drake was called in at short notice to bail us out of an overstuffed Otter flight at the end of a Tat/Alsek trip. He came in and retrieved the rest of our gear and two of us to Haines via an absolutely amazing flight over the glaciers, lakes and peaks surrounding Mt. Fairweather. He is a character and offered lots... More

I own a business in Haines, Alaska and have known Drake for 12 years. He goes out of the way, many times literally, to please his customers. If you want a flight-seeing tour or need service to towns in northern Lynn Canel, you will not find a better person or experience...

Just fantastic!! You will never see glaciers bay like this! Flying over it you see so much more than from a ship! Just no comparison. Drake was so pleasant and knowledgeable it just enhanced the whole flight experience. I must tell you to be patient. He is a one man show, but that is okay. Call him . Leave a... More

Very enjoyable flight-seeing trip around the mountains and glaciers. The extra landing is worth the extra $. We were lucky to have landed at the time that wild strawberries were ripe for eating, right off the plant. Great experience. Drake is very personable, knowledgeable, likeable, and full of information about the surrounding area.

Fantastic flight!! As a pilot myself with 41 years of aviation experience, I endorse Drake to be your Alaskan pilot for the authentic Alaskan experience. For the once in a lifetime flight that you will want to repeat....I trust Drake.
