  • Pilot service recommendation?

    Looking to do some fly out black bear hunting in 2015. Just need someone to drop me in woods and pick me up in a week. Landing is optional but probably preferred. Ill take care of the rest. Don't need a guide or any gear.

    Any body have a preference?

    P.S. I tried the search but it didnt return a whole lot. I've spent some time on google but everyone and their brother has a website that says "we're the best". Rather here it from a trusted community of hunters.

      I second batmobile, any opinion/experience with the different pilots out of Kotz?
      Google tells me there are:
      Arctic Air Guides
      Alaska Island Air Inc
      Hageland Aviation Services
      Northwestern Aviation

      Any opinion on these guys?

          Trail Ridge Air out of Lake Hood. Best one anywhere close. 248-0838 or jim@trailridge.com, its touch and go this time of the year but they'll return your message.

            If you're flying out of the Kenai area, go with Alaska West Air. They have the best aircraft and experienced pilots that know the West side very well.

                  I have been flying with them for something like 30 years now. Maybe if I had a punch card, I'd qualify for a free one by now. Top class operation.

                          Hula,

                          I've used Northwestern out of Kotz a couple times. Jim is always very professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend him for any flying in that region.

                            If I was flying out of Kotzebue I'd be talking to the following:
                            Arctic Backcountry Flying Service
                            Golden Eagle Outfitters
                            Northwestern Aviation

                            Of these Arctic Backcountry would easily be my number one choice. Eric is a great guy and an awesome pilot.

                              Eric is a great pilot and my choice for any flights out of Kotz. Flew with him a few times. Great guy. Don't tell him your after black bear though. Will provoke an odd gaze I suspect. Ha ha.
