Anchorage City Tour
Whether in the daylight or night time, “this is your tour”. A wonderful 15 minute flight circling Anchorage from the mountains to the water. Leaving Merrill Field from the heart of downtown Anchorage, your flight will head east toward the Chugach Mountain Range. These mountains border Anchorage and create the appearance of a bowl, holding the city against the ocean. On your left you will see the expanse of Elmendorf Air Force Base and Ft. Richardson Army base.
Turning south you parallel Muldoon Road and head toward Campbell Airstrip and the Campbell Creek Science Center. Turn west bound and proceed toward Anchorage’s International Airport and Lake Hood. A slight right turn directs you to the larger buildings of downtown, over the Sullivan Sports Arena, Westchester Lagoon, and the outflow of Chester Creek. As you turn back toward Merrill Field you have a “landing view” of the largest small airplane airport in the country.
During the dark winter nights, it is a very popular option as you see Anchorage light up the Inlet and on a clear night you may see the magical northern lights.

What a great trip our pilot Pablo was great. I am a pilot and was impressed with his skills and professionalism. That said he was a great guide and much fun.
