Q:

How is your safety record? I hear about so many flying accidents in Alaska. How long have you been in business?

A:

Hi Kathleen! Sheldon Air Service has been open since May 28, 2010 though we have decades of experience glacier flying in Alaska before we were able to open SAS. My husband David has been flying the Alaska Range from Talkeetna for 34 years and has never had an accident. Our other pilot Jok has been flying the mountains for 15 years and hasn't had an accident. So we have a perfect safety record. We love what we do and don't take chances. We hope you come with us for a flight of a lifetime! ~Holly

Q:

We will be arriving in anchorage ( from Amsterdam) on 8-6. Leaving for Talkeetna on 9-6. There we will stay again an afternoon/evening to leave for Denali on 10-6. What would be the best possible time to fly? And what if the weather is to bad to fly anyway? We realize there is a not much time, but flying was on our schedule if we could find the time. Seeing this offer we could not but contact you to see what would be possible. Hope to hear from you, kind regards Jos and Annelies Bisschops

Hi Jos and Annelies, We ask our customers to call us the day before their fight so we can give them a conditions and weather report. There isn't one time better than another during the day for a flight. It all depends on what the weather is doing on any given day. If the weather is not good enough to fly while you are here, the groupon will keep its $220 value for a future flight. ~ David & Holly

Q:

How many are on a plane? I will be there with my family (total of 4). Also, if I purchased one & one for gift to husband, could we both use them (with kids)? Glacier landing ... $75 each (x4), correct? Thanks ...

Carole M.  asked on  Dec 20, 2013

A:

Hi Carole! Our Cessna seats 5 and our Beaver seats 7. Our policy is to use one groupon (2 passengers) per flight. We do make exceptions when a family comes with kids. So you can plan up to 4 passengers on a plane. If the conditions and weather are good and you choose to add a glacier landing it costs $75 per person. We look forward to providing your family with truly a trip of a lifetime! Thank you for choosing to fly with Sheldon Air Service. Holly & David
