Alaska aviation is absolutely essential for the transporting of people,
supplies and equipment throughout the state. Most of Alaska is accessible by air. Bush planes operate from the northern
most shorelines of the Alaskan arctic, to the southern most boundaries of the Alaska panhandle, west to the tip of
the Aleutian Chain and east into Canada. Alaska is huge.
Large multi-engine airplanes can land on remote frozen lakes in the
dead of winter to deliver all of the construction materials needed to build a large wilderness home. Single-engine Alaska seaplanes or
airplanes on wheels, or skis can land on ridge tops, glaciers, rivers, lakes, river bars or ocean beaches, miles from
civilization for any kind of Alaska wilderness adventure...hunting, fishing, prospecting, rafting, hiking, snow boarding,
photography, and much more. Helicopters provide access to otherwise inaccessible areas. Alaska seaplane tours from Ketchikan to Bettles
can take you to remote lakes, rivers and salt water locations from southeast Alaska to the Arctic Ocean.
There are also scheduled flights to many communities in the state, delivering mail, supplies and
transporting people. Scheduled flights by Alaska air carriers can deliver you inexpensively, to the right place from which to
launch an incredible wilderness adventure.
