    Default Super cub on floats?

    Is anyone aware of any flight services that fly into the Skilak Lake area with a super cub on floats or a similarly agile aircraft adept at accessing alpine lakes? Thanx in advance.

    Confirm which lakes are legal to land on in KNWR. We checked last year and a lot of them are not legal to land on.

    Default Piper cub

    Alaska West Air has a Super Cub on floats. Have flown twice with Doug Brewer, (owner) and would recommend him.

    I heartly agree with this recommendation. Jim and his group are great to fly with and do everything they can to help. I'm going with them again in a week.

    Flew twice with High Adventure Air, out of sterling. Not only have they provided us great flights, they have helped with researching trips, fishing etc. I bet I talked to them 15 times while planning our trip this year alone. The lakes anybody can land on are limited, but there are several in the Skilak lake area, to include Skilak lake.

    Seems like a empty quote from an angry poster.

    I've used Doug at Alaska West Air. He has a nice fleet and plenty of experience to get the job done. No problems recommending him from me.

    I know that Doug has Cub, not sure if Allan at Talon has a Cub. My Family members have used both in the past, both guys are good people.
