This is cool!

Check out the cool motorcycle one of our customers drove up in from California. What will they think of next?

Pika Glacier/Little Swiss Report

Fly with TAT - Saturday, July 02, 2011

Team Salamander spent 10 fun days on the Pika, flying out July 1, 2011. Weather was in-and-out sun, allowing a total of 5 climbing days. The trend was toward evening clearing, with two days of full sun. The moats are in but with rain and warming things are quickly melting. There is still a decent snow bridge to the Gargoyle Buttress. The start of the first pitch had some ice which we attacked with ice axes (though one could climb with rock shoes and creative route finding). An Anchorage team replaced the webbing on the first 9 anchors last week. The Middle Troll has widening moats as well, but there are still a couple of intact bridges. The first 200' are loose gravel and boulders, and are not safe for more than one party to be on at a time. Lost Marsupials approach was straightforward. Summit ridge with corniced, soft snow. AMS arete approach without major crevasses, though the glaciers on either side are bare to the dust layer and snow cover melting fast. 

Stomp that Runway if you want a Pickup!

Fly TAT 1 - Thursday, June 23, 2011
Climbers put to work when the pilot needs a good place to land. 
This morning over 30 climbers were waiting for a pick up.  This clamor of climbers paced the runway to pack down the fresh snow.
In order for to pick climbers up on glacier the planes need an area that is at least 1200 feet long.
Stomp Stomp Stomp...



National Park Service ranger John Loomis coordinated the quick stomp so the planes could get in and land at Kahiltna Base Camp.

Happy Father's Day!

Heading to Camp

Fly TAT 1 - Thursday, June 16, 2011
Look close... closer... this is a picture from one of our flights checking on some climbers heading back and forth from their camp... Climbing season here is quickly coming to an end...currently there is a 53% summit rate for Denali.

Clear Blues Skies

Fly TAT - Monday, June 06, 2011
It feels good to have clear blue skies again. The view coming into work today was spectacular. We've been flying all morning. Keep up the good thoughts for continued good weather.

Our Window of Opportunity is here!

Fly TAT - Saturday, June 04, 2011
The weather has cleared up this afternoon and we are able to fly! We are so excited to get climbers up to Base Camp and get Danial off the mountain. She has been stuck there since yesterday when weather came in and stopped her from getting out.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Fly TAT 1 - Friday, June 03, 2011
We wanna fly! At least there is something beautiful due to the rain.

We love the view from here.

Fly TAT - Sunday, May 29, 2011


Taking a scenic flight in May can be an amazing adventure.  Here is a photo that a scenic passenger shared with us and we thought we could share it with you.  The weather has been great for flying to the mountains.
