Alaska is a beautiful state and the people we have encountered here have been so happy with their job. The male owner/pilot of this company is straight up rude. If you don’t like a customer service industry, do yourself a favor and get out.More

I can't describe in words how wonderful this flight was with Ellison Air. They came so highly recommended by other pilots and they were right. It is the flight of a lifetime. John isn't the biggest outfit, but he may very well be the best!...More

John was easy to get a hold of. He was very knowledgeable of the sites we were seeing. We landed on Beluga Lake. He took pictures of my husband and I with the beautiful landscape in the background.
