Sheldon Air Service's mission is to provide safe, cost effective transportation throughout Alaska as well as to provide their customers with a flight of a lifetime!

David and Holly

Offering flightseeing and air taxi services, Sheldon Air Service is family owned and operated by David Lee and Holly Sheldon Lee in Talkeetna, Alaska. Our family has been flying Alaskans to glaciers since 1932. David has been flying mountain climbers, visitors, homesteaders and adventurists from Talkeetna for 33 years.

With over 12,000 hours of flight time throughout the Alaska Range in Denali National Park, David is one of the most experienced off-airport pilots who specialize in glacier landings. Sheldon Air offers a modern air service while preserving the personal touch of a family-run business.

We want the opportunity to share a once-in-a-lifetime flight, into the wilds of Alaska, with you.

In our Customers' Words


" We loved the flightseeing trip with David from Sheldon Air Service in Talkeetna. It was definitely one of the best things we have ever done on vacation!"

We bought a Groupon and then opted to add on a glacier landing. Paula at Sheldon was very efficient in taking the reservation several months ago and calling a couple days before our July 2 flight. Paula, Holly, and David were all very nice and helpful."

David did a great job of explaining all about the area, including telling us about the glaciers, Mt. McKinley, etc. We landed on the glacier and spent about 20 minutes. Fascinating! I definitely would recommend adding on the glacier landing. The scenery in the air was beautiful, but to actually stand on a glacier was unbelievable!"

I have already gotten so many comments on my facebook page of the glacier pics."

We definitely would recommend Sheldon to anybody. I wouldn't even consider going with a different company!"
