The Flight Home

8 09 2011


One of my favorite parts of living in Alaska is flying in small bush planes. Since getting to take my first flight when I was ten, in a small Cessna with my older brother’s friend at the yoke, I was hooked (I’m still unsure why my mom let us fly with a seventeen year old pilot….although, I’m not complaining!). Small airplanes are a way of life here, for both recreation and business. I love the access that they allow to the remote areas of the state-small lakes, gravel bars, and glaciers. Here are a few pictures I took flying from Takahula Lake in the Brooks Range to Bettles-a beautiful flight, with a great (and quite hilarious) pilot from Brooks Range Aviation.

Great photos from the plane! Glad to hear Brooks Range Aviation is still providing great service! I chose them on all my trips out of Bettles.
