Having travelled from Australia, one of the must see on our holiday was bear viewing. We flew with Rusts Flying Service, what an amazing experience, taking off in a float plane, it was a definite wow moment. Safe in the hands of our very skilled pilot Curtis who had years of flying experience he pointed out lots of interesting sites... More

What an exhilarating ride we had from Lake Lucille over to see the nearby glaciers. Our pilot was great with lots of information and a great sense of humour. Ok, perhaps my sister had to use the sick bag, but I had a wonderful time! Excellent 45 minute ride of a lifetime.

I took my mom on a glacier tour with a lake landing. It was a great experience. Curtis was an amazing pilot and showed us some memorable views of Knik glacier. His sense of humor and skill set made the trip one worth repeating. I would recommend the trip to everyone!

Nothing like a flight over Alaska. We had a great pilot with 50 years experience. Very professional. Very accommodating with rides to/from hotel.

Very helpful with online ordering, check-in, and returning. They boxed my fish and got it ready for the airline return flight. Good pilots. Would recommend to anyone.

The service offered by this company was exemplary , in particular the pilot of our float plane, Curtis. He encountered low cloud down to 500 feet but had better weather confirmed at destination, so climbed up and over, rather than cancel. His landing on the glassy lake surface was amazing - he greased it on. Beautiful! The bear viewing was... More

Although we initially booked the Denali tour, we finally did the Prince William Sound tour due to weather conditions. It has been an amazing experience being able to see all those glaciers. It is unbelievable how wonderful Mather nature is!! Curtis made us feel comfortable during the trip, he is an excellent pilot very experience. It is worth it the... More

Rust's customer service, pilots and staff are unmatched. They truly go above and beyond to take care of each guest. I had the pleasure of 2 trips this summer. Pilots are friendly and knowledgeable. The shuttle will pick you up from the airport or hotel. I highly recommend. If you have questions, they are very informative about the trips and... More

We flew to and from Redoubt Bay Lodge on Rust's. While the tour at the Lodge was a disappointment (see separate review), the flights themselves were great fun. Given my aviation background, I always have an eye open for safety issues, but found only professionalism and safety consciousness at Rust's. The preflight safety brief was thorough and the aircraft, a... More
