air adventures

Flightsees - Come on an adventure of a lifetime in a four-seat float plane!  Your pilot is Scott Amy, an Anchorage resident flying all types of aircraft in Alaska for the last 15 years.  Scott has thousands of hours of flight time in Alaska, and is a trained photographer so he has a keen eye for the gorgeous vistas and once-in-a-lifetime shots that you can capture and take home to remind you of your trip to the 49th state!  Scott’s bright yellow Cessna 185 comes equipped with amphibious floats in the Summer time, which means that he can take off and land on either water or land!  Flights are by appointment only, and can depart from Lake Hood, Girdwood, or other airports and lakes around Southcentral Alaska.

What do people Say?

I booked a flightsee adventure with Skydance with my girl friend. We both have lived in Alaska most of our lives and have done a lot of flying, but had not seen what the Chugach Mountains in the back drop of Anchorage really offered until Scott took us up. Within 15 min from take off we were looking down at Beluga Whales, Dall Sheep on steep cliffs and soon after that... big glaciers and lots of ice. We landed on a glassy lake in the mountains and had some food on a beautiful sunlit shore before taking off to see more.

What do people Say?

"Scott is a professional who operates in some wild places. I drew on Scott's knowledge and experience while planning a backcountry trip with my wife to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. When poor weather delayed our extraction, Scott went above and beyond his role as pilot by communicating with family and helping to organize alternatives. Scott is enthusiastic about flying, which adds to the incredible experience of traveling by small plane in the majestic Alaskan wilderness."

Wesley stien


What do people Say?

""Scott took us out on nearly three weeks of field collections for a research study across central Alaska. We found him to be well-prepared and very safety-conscious. He was also knowledgeable of the area and quick to offer advice and planning for how to best approach our work."
