Alaska Bush Flying
Featuring Aircraft Photo & Video
One of the unique elements of adventuring in Alaska is the flying. Without the luxury of road systems, Alaska has developed into an epicenter for bush planes and bush pilots. Air travel is essential to the 49th state, and it is a key componenet to the operations of many of our recommended lodges and adventures. These aircraft allow us access to some of the most remote and beautiful places on planet Earth. The bird's eye view that one gets over the vast tundra, glaciers, lake systems, and jagged peaks can be jaw dropping. See our gallery of featured aircraft that include De Havilland Beavers & Otters, Cessnas, Helios Couriers, AStar 350 Helicopter, and a Goose! Also, check out the POV videos of bush flights by Crystal Creek Lodge (Valley of 10,000 Smokes) and Tikchik Narrows Lodge (Wood-Tikchik State Park).
