The Deal

  • $220 for a Mountain House tour flight for two ($420 value)

Flights depart from Talkeetna Airport. From the cabin of a Cessna 185 or de Havilland Beaver, passengers absorb breathtaking views of Mount McKinley’s south face, soar high above the Tokositna Glacier, and zip through the Ruth Glacier’s Great Gorge, the deepest in North America. The flight’s ultimate destination is a flyover of the Don Sheldon Amphitheatre and the Mountain House shelter built by the company’s founder’s father. The tour affords an opportunity to land at Ruth Glacier, which costs an extra $75 and adds another 30 minutes to the tour’s duration.

About Sheldon Air Service


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.
