Trained pilots lift off from Talkeetna aboard a 180-horsepower PA-18 Super Cub equipped with EDO 2000 floats for water landings. During up to four hours of flight, they transport fishers, hikers, and rifle and bow hunters to and from remote locales. The service can be used to take hunters to remote locations.

Above Alaska Aviation

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 Citabria and Champ aircraft, as well as a PA-18 Super Cub. They train private pilots in standard flight and students for single-engine seaplanes, and they guide takeoff, landing, and beaching 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, such as mountainous strips and lakeside gravel bars, where they can hike, fish, or hunt with rifles and bows.
