We loved the ride even though we couldn't land on the glacier due to being late in the season we were still amazed at what we did see. Our pilot was able to get close to the glaciers and we saw lots of moose and bears and cubs as well. And being on a small plane, I was a bit nervous about the landing and it was smoother than the big 737s, didn't even feel a bump. The pilot has 37 years of experience and you can tell he still loves his job. Awesome experience and I would highly recommend it!!

Excellent, experienced pilot. Knowledgeable about the terrain, history, mountain climbing, wildlife. Great flight, including a landing on one of the glaciers. I intend to go again and will fly with Sheldon Air.

These guys are great and worked with out of town guest on schedule and weather. Glacier landing is a must and well worth the extra bucks. Bring a brew or two to enjoy while there.

From Our Editors

According to Malcom Gladwell’s hypothesis from Outliers, it takes 10,000 hours of practice in a field to reach the heights of success achieved by Bill Gates, the Beatles, and other icons. This makes Sheldon Air Service’s David Lee the Paul McCartney of pilots—every time he takes to the air, Lee draws upon experience gained during more than three decades of experience and 12,000 flight hours.

Lee’s carefully honed talent—and his specialization in glacier landings—makes him an ideal guide for the company’s three flightseeing tours. One heads to the Mountain House Shelter, which founder Don Sheldon built, while others glide to Kahiltna Glacier Base Camp or Denali National Park. The air service can also aid arctic adventurers, offering air support to mountaineering expeditions or skyward tracking of the Iditarod’s meandering course.
