Alaska Bush Pilot Tour
Ready for this? We take you up in the Alaskan hot rod- Piper Super Cub. You’ll fly lower and slow over the ground and be amazed at the versatility of this plane. We’ll explore gravel bars and river areas few Alaskan’s get to see this way. A bit of exploring and adventure is built into this trip. You will not be disappointed with the multiple landings and exciting views from this specially equipped aircraft. Just you and your pilot!
Perfect for the single traveler or those that have ‘done it all’. Let our Bush Pilot’s show you what we know. Nowhere else can you experience this type of flight experience. Mellow ride for those that ask, exciting for everyone else! We head into the rugged nearby river drainages and glacier moraines for some performance flying. No stunts, but the mostly glass cockpit will amaze you. If you choose, later into the flight, we customize your tour and head deeper into the wilds to see glaciers and wildlife. A ridge top or river bar landing here will make you feel alive! The Local’s favorite trip. Come See why.

The Chugach Mountains of southern Alaska are the northernmost of the several mountain ranges that make up the Pacific Coast Ranges of the western edge of North America. The range is about 250 miles long and 60 miles wide, and extends from the Knik and Turnagain Arms of the Cook Inlet on the west to Bering Glacier, Tana Glacier, and the Tana River on the east. It is bounded on the north by the Matanuska, Copper, and Chitina rivers. The highest point of the Chugach Mountains is Mount Marcus Baker, at 13,094 feet, but with an average elevation of 4,006 feet, most of its summits are not especially high. Even so its position along the Gulf of Alaska ensures more snowfall in the Chugach than anywhere else in the world.
The mountains are protected in the Chugach State Park and the Chugach National Forest. Near to Anchorage, they are a popular destination for outdoor activities. Weather permitting, the World Extreme Skiing Championship is held annually in the Chugach Mountains near Valdez.
The Richardson Highway, Seward Highway, Portage Glacier Highway, and the Glenn Highway run through the Chugach Mountains. The Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel of the Portage Glacier Highway provides railroad and automobile access underneath Maynard Mountain between Portage Lake and the city of Whittier on Prince William Sound.
