We chose this trip because it goes around the mountain not over it, thus avoiding oxygen masks. Our pilot showed us some beautiful sights, getting up close and personal with the mountain. The magnificence of the mountain and area is indescribable. We became part of the 30% group who get to see the top of the mountain. Great trip, great pilot.

This was my most anticipated excursion and fell a bit flat due to the unfortunate weather conditions. I booked it months ago and in hindsight would wait until I got to the park before booking it to be sure weather was decent to see McKinley. The pilot, Joe, was excellent and provided us with a realistic expectation of what we were going to experience. There were only 4 of us on the 3:00 trip so seating was easily determined. I sat in the last seat which provided great views from both sides of the plane. It was quite turbulent, but Pilot Joe was vigilant and monitored the weather guiding us as close as he dared to where we might catch a brief view of McKinley. Headphones provided info. of the sights we were seeing and Joe also interjected his personal remarks. Aerial views were nice but the whole trip for me was to see McKinley. An expensive trip w/out seeing the prized mountain.

This was an incredible excursion!!!! Our pilot was wonderful - every seat was a good one - and we heard lots of information through our headsets. This was very professionally done and should not be missed. It was expensive but the highlight of our trip!!

This was a first class trip. Despite rainy weather, the pilot took us up and was able to get some beautiful views of the Park as we approached the mountain. He got us very up close w/ Mt McKinley. Even though we saw the mountain from the ground that day, by air was a very different and unique experience.
