  • Air Charter on wheels - Iliamna or Dillingham

    I'm looking for references of air charters flying wheels out of Iliamna or Dillingham. I would like to land on a mountain and put my raft in at the headwaters. Any information would be appreciated.

      Dillingham will soon have a transporter aircraft on wheels.

      BAY AIR, owned/operated by Tom and Janet S., have purchased a wheel plane with a 600 pound+- weight max limit. It should be ready for business this spring.

          Wheel plane

          Wolfeel,
          I spoke with Tom recently while confirming my schedule of fall flights with his Beaver on floats. The 600 pound approximate capacity of his new aircraft is one passenger and 400 pounds +- of cargo gear. I'm not an airplane guy and I forget what type of aircraft it is. I should know, but I can't think of it right now. It clearly is larger than a cub, and still has short landing and takeoff capability for bush flying. When you call him, tell him I mentioned the new wheel plane, but don't tell him I forgot the type of aircraft.

          ...not a cub,
          ...not a helio,
          ...not a husky,
          ...IT IS A MAULE, I finally remembered. Good night.
