    At the cost of fuel prices how doese that effect your bush flying? Do you just charge more for charters?

    Prices high in bush

    I was out of Naknek late this sept and fuel was over 4 dollars and some a gallon. Be wary that some transporters were charging fuel surcharges and if your on a tight budget it might be a trip breaker. I had a couple of freinds on a bear hunt that was told they needed to pay another $1000 dollars when they arrived in King Salmon. Always make sure you get every thing in writing. Most of the pilots dont make a great living, they just love there job. The only ones that make money is the big name guys and most of those companies have other pilots doing the flying.

      It really jumped around here. Usually I buy 200 gallons at a time. Not this last summer. I can run car gas as well and usually like to mix a 50/50 blend. But now we are starting to get alcohol in our local auto fuel...
      Is there no end to the madness?????

        Avgas prices in Anchorage have been more stable than auto gas or diesel in the past year. I was paying less for 100LL than diesel fuel or car gas in mid-summer.

            The highest price I paid at Suburban was a couple of pennies shy of $3.00, taxes included.

                  That would explain the burning pain in my entrails....
                  We are getting hosed....


                  It looks like another Anchorage trip is in order.. I think it will take about $90-$100 bucks in diesel for the round trip, so I'll have to shop for a few other things to make it worth while...
