It was an experience for a lifetime! We added glacier landing and it was the best decision. The owner was very flexible about our schedule. We were able to pick a sunny day to fly and see Denali. Their planes might not be the newest with fancy headphone, but the pilot is an experience guy and we learned a lot about the area from Jok. Highly recommended!

Great, experienced, friendly staff. The weather wasn't fully cooperative, but we did see some of the mountain. We spent the extra for the glacier landing, which I am glad we did. There was even a sled for my two boys and I to slide down the glacier. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering.

Needless to say, any air travel is weather dependent, so be prepared for cancellations and rescheduling. Also, be ready to go at a last minute's notice. As long as you are flexible, you will be pleased. This trip was by far the highlight of our Alaskan vacation. The pilot and employees were friendly and informative. The flight was great with wonderful views of Denali. We really enjoyed the glacier landing. The Cessna 185 is a small airplane, but the views were good from all seats, and we felt very safe the entire flight. Each person in the plane had a headset, so we could hear radio communications and talk to the pilot. Great experience.

This was the best adventure we had while visiting Alaska. Great service and great pilot. I recommend Sheldon Air Service for a great Alaskan experience and pay the extra to land on Glacier.

Top-notch service! Everyone we encountered at Sheldon was phenomenal - from the initial phone call to make the reservation until completion of our flight. The flightseeing trip and glacier landing were one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska, and we highly recommend Sheldon Air Service!!

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.
