  5. New business !

    Out of holiday mode, back to flying... Before summer I had closed my two AH companies, and I am now restarting from scratch with Klawock Air Services, a one man business based in PAKW, Alaska. In the Tongass fjords I start with an all around Cessna 185 Amphib. First delivery is over in Canada at CAB6 on the Skitine River, a 1053m dirt/gravel strip. My plane is waiting on the PAKW parking, weather is so-so with a 10 miles visibility and broken clouds around 2700 - 3000 ft. Light wind from the south. Take off early afternoon, happy to fly again in these fantastic landscapes... Soon above the broken clouds, under the 5000 ft solid cover. After 50 minutes following the fjords, I start flying up the river, 23nm to my destination. Found it on first approach on a small island in the middle of the river, gear and flaps down... First delivery and first payment on the company's account !

  9. PNW/PFJ + Tongass Tour 2017

    Stage 4 From Khutze River Lodge to Kowesas River Lodge Part 3 Soft touchdown on the calm waters of the Chief Mathews Bay ... As I taxi to my destination, I float by a group of killer whales fishing with many sea birds above them ... Going up the river I float past the end of the small dirt strip. And here I am at the Kowesas River Lodge pontoon, with a warm welcome for the weekend ! A real picture of the place :

    Yes I always fly real time and real weather. If the weather is too bad for flying, I go boating... Or like in my Australia tour when I cannot fly real time, I load the historical weather at the time of the flight.
