    Just wondering. A relative from up in Anchorage was asking about places for primary instruction and this name came up.

    Skytrek is at Merrill. They do offer flight instruction in a 150 and 172. I think the gal that runs it received some award this year. Not sure of the details.

    Excerpt from AOPA flight training magazine, February 2018:

    SkyTrek Alaska and its founder, Jamie Patterson-Simes, are known for high-quality training that doesn’t cut corners. The flight school’s enthusiastic customers propelled SkyTrek Alaska to the title of 2017 Best National Flight School in the AOPA Flight Training Experience Awards. The top national honor follows a designation of Outstanding Flight School in the 2016 Flight Training Excellence Awards.

    Good article. She sounds like a class act.
