Holly and David run an absolutely fabulous air service. In 2007, our climbing team flew with a local competitor and our experience with them was less than satisfactory. They were all business and we felt we were treated like a number. More disappointingly, we were on their schedule and we had to wait over four hours in perfectly good weather before they would fly us on to the glacier. The net effect is that it needlessly delayed our expedition by a whole day. Our experience in 2012 with Holly and David was completely opposite. They were extremely friendly and treated us more like family than customers. They bent over backwards to get us on the glacier at the earliest moment and did everything they could to ensure our success. On our flight off the glacier we called them from our satellite phone at the base of "heartbreak hill" and they immediately flew out to the glacier and were waiting for us when we got there. David is also an expert pilot with an incredible amount of flying experience. We felt completely safe with him at all time and enjoyed him pointing out to us various features in the Alaska range and telling us about the local culture. I wholeheartedly recommend flying with Sheldon Air Service. Holly and David are first class.
