TAT, We pioneer the landings, you pioneer the routes.
Talkeetna Air Taxi leads the way providing air support for climbers to Denali and other remote regions of Alaska. We not only fly where you want to go but also take care of you before and after the glacier. TAT continues to pioneer glacier runways for access to new areas and first ascents to simplify approaches.
Paul Roderick and the crew of handpicked glacier pilots have a reputation for knowing what climbers need. Some of our fans include: Jack Tackle, Steve House, Mark Twight, Marko Prezelj, Mark Westman, Jim Donini, Colin Haley, George Lowe and the inimitable Fred Beckey.
Flying climbers from all over the world has been the backbone of our business and how flights got started in and around Denali. The level of attention climbers receive is personal. We have a staging area to practice crevasse rescue and sort gear. We offer a bunkhouse and drying tents free of charge.
TAT uses instrument equipped Otters allowing for more frequent runs in and out of the mountains, which translates to more climbing and skiing or swift pick ups. TAT hires pilots who are mountain enthusiasts, climbers or skiers where the Alaska Range is their playground. On days off they can be seen playing in the mountains. Their experience and training assure your delivery and pick up in an efficient and professional fashion.
The flight from Talkeetna into the Alaska Range is an incredible experience that will fire your imagination. The adventure possibilities in this area are endless and we invite you to join us in our passion.*Notes:
-All flight costs include 125 pounds of gear per climber. Additional gear is charged $1 per pound.
-All flights are subject to 5% Federal Transportation Tax.
