Authentic Alaska is just a plane ride away, and you can trust pilot Jeff Carlin to share his passion and excitement for this great state anytime you go flightseeing with him on Carlin Air. Jeff’s got more than 30,000 hours of experience deftly flying in Alaska. He is widely regarded as one of the most knowledgeable and experienced local pilots around. He understands the remote terrain and weather patterns that can make flying in Alaska challenging.

Jeff’s DeHaviland Beaver – an award winning Alaskan float plane – is also a thrill for those wanting a quintessential Alaskan adventure.

With all those hours in the air, Jeff can tell you a thing or two about what you’ll see upon landing too. He was born and raised in Ketchikan, and speaks with authority on those things he’s been doing all his life: flying, fishing, and hunting.

Want to see bears in Traitor’s Cove? Jeff knows the best times to go. Want to fish for grayling in Manzony Lake? He’ll advise you on the right kind of tackle. Can’t wait to see Misty Fjords National Park? Hop in and be sure your camera has fully charged batteries.

If you’re looking for the real McCoy, Jeff Carlin is just the guy. His sense of enthusiasm is contagious– and you likely end up loving Alaska almost as much as he does.
