BUSH FLYING IN ALASKA
At over 500,000 square miles, Alaska is the largest state in the union and is one-fifth the size of the entire “Lower 48”. With only one major highway, the primary mode of transportation is the airplane so if you like to fly, Alaska is definitely the place to be. From landing ski planes on the glaciers of Mount McKinley, to mapping tundra fires in Central Alaska, to hauling oil refinery parts to Barrow on the North Slope, the flying in Alaska provides an unparalleled flying experience.
