Cosa farete

There are opportunities for different destinations for our excursion. One of the most popular trips for guests who have never flown before is a trip to the beautiful Knik Glacier. The student will be piloting the airplane with instruction from me and input as necessary to keep the flight as smooth as possible, all while learning the basic elements of flying along the way. Other popular trips include but aren't limited to Denali, Talkeetna, and Skwentna. For student pilots that have never piloted a plane before, a log book with proper endorsement will be included at the end of the trip. For pilots who have flown before this is still sure to be a taste of the ultimate "Alaskan" experience. This experience is a private experience, once we have your group booked I will close it off from others joining in. My airplanes can accommodate up to three guests if you have group members that want to ride along and watch the experience. Message me for more details.

Best. Day. Ever! Book this experience and you wont be sorry! Matt jumps right into explaining what buttons do what, he makes sure you're safely in, explains how you start the engine and what to do (along with this help) and you're off! I'm not a fan of flying (but love to travel) and I thought I would be so nervous doing this but I wasn't. Matt is right there to guide you, helps out when needed, if you want to take some pics/videos, he takes over no problem. The views are stunning that high up. I was talking & laughing with Matt - hes a super nice guy, great teacher, very easy to talk with, he points out a lot of cool things and facts about the area. I would do this again in a heartbeat!

The flight was as described in the bio. Matt was very interactive by responding to any questions we had and giving excellent flight instruction. Would definitely recommend this experience and getting your pilots license with him.

This was a truly once in a lifetime experience! Matt is a flying expert, you will feel super safe and comfortable while flying with him. The ride was amazing. There was no turbulence, sky was clear and we had a great closeup view of Denali and the glacier. With Matt by your side it was super easy to maneuver the plane. I’m so happy I took my first flying lesson.

Do not miss this opportunity - Matt is a very welcoming and warm person who has been flying planes for a long time. He will introduce you to the basics of flying and will give you as much opportunity as you want to fly by yourself while keeping you safe. He is also very considerate - he knew I had trouble reaching Wasilla airport (since I didn't have a car and took the Valley Transit bus to a nearby location where I was stranded for quite some time), so he offered to drop me at Anchorage airport before flying back to Wasilla himself. You will not regret this experience!

The private flight experience was amazing. This particular flight was in a Piper Cherokee 6. The plane can vary depending on party size or interest. Matt was very helpful and provided more specific instructions in location within the airport and what plane to look for upon arrival. The weather was dark and mostly sunny when we started takeoff. We flew over several areas of the Hatcher Valley and Knik Glacier. With guidance, I maneuvered through the valley avoiding potential poor weather areas. Matt explained the long history of the valley along with showing some more recent history (1800s) of gold mines in the area. We flew over meadows in search for moose, and got some great looks at icy blue lakes in the glacier melt. It was beautiful and awe-inspiring. At the end of it, I got to log my hours toward a pilot license. I highly recommend for those even a little interested in Alaska and flying.
