wonderful staff there. My grandson had a very worthwhile introduction to flying and loved his instructor. I was impressed with the care they took to explain everything. Josh has to wait another year before getting fully engaged in flying lessons, but he's hooked all the same. Thanks, Above Alaska Aviation Staff!

My son loved his introductory lesson. The staff was friendly and professional. The aircraft are well maintained. It's hard to plan with Alaskan weather, so we camped overnight just in case at a local rv park.

From Our Editors

Over sweeping evergreen pine forests and snow-capped mountains, the pilots from Above Alaska Aviation's FAR flight school hone their craft. FAA-certified instructors coach students in a range of specialized flight training in a fleet of 7EC Champ aircraft, as well as a PA-18 Super Cub and Cessna 180B. They train private pilot students in tailwheel aircraft from start to finish, tailwheel endorsements, and single-engine sea float ratings on the mountain lakes of Susitna Valley. Students learn the basics of flying tail-wheel aircraft—planes with landing gear on the tail—to hone skill sets, enhance their understanding of flight safety, and help them feel superior to carrier pigeons. When not teaching flight, bush pilots ferry passengers to remote wilderness areas where they can hike, fish, or hunt with rifles and bows.
