Twid has flown with TAT since 2000 and has always had service.
Climbing Support since 1999, Talkeetna Air Taxi has flown over 1,000 climbers per year into the Alaska Range – over three times the number of climbers flown by any other air service.
Everyone at TAT loves the climbing season and we are excited about what expedition teams are doing. The level of attention you get with TAT is personal. We erect drying tents near our office and at the TAT climber bunkhouse. We shuttle you around Talkeetna with your gear, make sure your loved ones know that “no news is good news”, with a smile in our voice. We collect current BETA from climbers coming off routes on facebook, so you can have the most current conditions. TAT opens early and closes late to take advantage of “weather windows” to get you in or out of the mountains.
TAT has the only IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) Ski-equipped aircraftsproviding access to the Alaska Range – allowing for more frequent runs in and out of the mountains for a prompt pick-up. This means we can climb above the Talkeetna valley weather to access the glaciers safely. Our planes have been modified Alaska style: fat skis for powder snow, increased payload capability, cargo doors for easier loading, wing modifications allowing shorter take-offs/landings, bigger engines, and bigger propellers. These all sound really cool but they also translate into better performance, and most importantly all these modifications make us safer.
TAT hires pilots who are mountain enthusiasts, climbers, & skiers. The Alaska Range is their playground. On days off you will see them flying, landing at “secret” glaciers, and skiing. 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 the TAT family and make your trip the most enjoyable journey possible.
