    Default Flight Service out of Ft. Yukon

    I have a previous client who wants to hunt the Coleen River drainage in 2018 and needs a pilot and I am guessing out of Ft. Yukon. I am not up on that area and could use some help.

    Thanks,

    Wright's scheduled service to Fort Yukon and then charter with Yukon Air or Get Wright's Charter service to fly them from Squarebanks.

    70 Degrees North maybe or he could fly Wright Air to Bettles then fly from there to the Colleen with Brooks Range Aviation. Would probably be a spendy airplane ride though.

    There's another guy who keeps a plane in Fort Yukon all summer and flies hunters up to ANWR for sheep hunts, might be worth checking with him. His name is Peterson. Looks like a small plane though. They could fly commercial from FAI to FYU with Wright or Warbelows and then jump on his plane.

    Looks like his number is as follows, based on the refuge listing-
    907 278 0994
