Sheldon Air Service

Thank you for inquiring about flightseeing from Talkeetna, our home. We are the local, family-owned and operated air service. We have been flying the Alaska Range for over 30 years. Our family has been flying in Alaska for 3 generations, and has been landing on glaciers since 1932. We would like to share our history and stories with you to highlight your flightseeing experience. All of our planes have 2-way communication between the pilot and you. Not only will you hear the pilot’s narration, you will also be able to ask the pilot questions as you are flying throughout the majesty of the Alaska Range! We offer three standard flightseeing trips: 1. Our Mountain House Tour consists of 1 hour of flight time in which we take you up the Ruth Glacier into the Alaska Range where you can see the Mountain House that Don Sheldon built and land on the glacier if you like. The Mountain House Tour costs $190.00 per person and the glacier landing option is $75.00 per person. 2. Our Base Camp Tour is 1 1/4 hours of flight time in which we take you over the Base Camp on the Kahiltna glacier, where mountain climbers begin their climb of Denali. The Base Camp Tour costs $235.00 per person and the glacier landing option is $75.00 per person. 3. Our Denali Grand Tour will take you all the way around Denali (Mt. McKinley) and is 1 1/2 hours of flight time with the option of a glacier landing. The Grand Tour costs $280.00 per person and the glacier landing cost is $75.00 per person. Our family will sincerely appreciate you choosing us to be the air service to provide you with a trip of a lifetime. Please see our website for additional tour information or call us at 800.478.2321. We look forward to showing you the beauty of Mount McKinley! Best Regards, David & Holly
