Airplanes and Alaska!

Alaska is the largest of all 50 states and yet contains the fewest miles of road system in America. Aviation history in Alaska is rich with stories of legendary bush pilots who helped settle this vast land. Still today, bushplanes play a critical role in traversing miles of unchartered country delivering groceries, medical workers, construction materials, and other necessary supplies. Another benefit of bushplanes is the ability to show our customers untouched Alaska from the air! Look out the window, and snow-covered mountain peaks, glaciers, waterfalls, volcanos, and host of wildlife will be right off your wingtip. Seeing the Kenai Mountains and outer coast of Alaska by bushplane will leave you spellbound and speechless. Want to bring the whole family? No problem! Our de Havilland Otter can carry up to 10 passengers, each with a window seat. You’ll thunder through mountain passes, over the Harding Ice Field, across the Grewingk, Woznesenski, and Nuka glaciers on your way to Bradley Lake to see one of the largest waterfalls in the state. Your tour will loop the head of Kachemak Bay, fly over the Kilcher Homestead and land safely back at the Homer airport or Beluga Lake. Your choice of flightsee times are from 1.5 to 3.5 hours and we know will be a highlight of your vacation. Climb aboard! Your chariot to the backcountry awaits!

Why Us?

When Northwind Aviation went looking for the best airplanes for our guests, the decision was simple, the Cessna 206 and the de Havilland  Otter floatplanes, along with a new addition of the de Havilland Beaver on wheels were the best choices.  These aircraft are true bushplanes designed and built for transporting people and heavy loads of supplies and equipment throughout Alaska.  Destination Alaska invites you to ride along as we soar above glaciers, rocky coastlines, volcanoes, and snowcapped mountains across Cook Inlet and around the Kenai Peninsula.  While in the air, you’ll have the opportunity to see moose, black bears, mountain goats, whales, and other wildlife that call Kachemak Bay and the Kenai mountains home.
