Bush airfare on the rise.
Surprise, surprise, A buddy just told me that Brooks Range Aviation is now charging over $900/hr. for a beaver on floats. Wow! And to think that I used to snivel at paying $400/hr. I wonder how long it will be before $900/hr seems cheap?
Ten years ago we were paying $440. for a beaver out of Lake Hood now they get $750 for the same beaver.
Two different air taxi services have informed me that the rate for a Beaver on floats will increase to $900.00 per hour in 2009.
