Perfect Morning Flight Along Lake Clark

A 7:30 am flight from Port Alsworth to the Lake Clark Mountain Pass entrance 
may be your favorite flight. Ever.

Check out Tanalian Mountain reflecting in the glassy Lake Clark.
Frog Island, close to the north shore, is straight across the lake from Current Creek, which flows from the valley glowing in the early morning light.
The lake looks dreamy towards the east as it's surrounded by blue misty mountains and low laying clouds.
You've got to come see this!

Best Air Taxi Location in Anchorage!

Lake and Pen Air has the best location on Merrill Field! At least we think so.
We love the panoramic view of the Chugach mountains, the colorful sunrises & sunsets, and the easy access off 5th Ave. 
Our customers agree! 
But they also love the free parking, fridge & freezer access, 
and excellent customer service!

Oh look! There goes another on time Lake and Pen Air flight!
You can enjoy the many perks too - come fly with LPA!

Looks Can Be Deceiving...

Believe it or not, there's a warm and green summer landscape below these chilly looking clouds and snow capped mountains.
When the morning clouds melt away it's a beautiful contrast!

Come fly with us - we'll show you all around Alaska!

Hidden Lake Clark Waterfall

About this time of year there is massive snow melt happening on the mountains, 
and all that water makes the local waterfalls swell with power. 
This hidden gem near the head of Lake Clark is stunning. 
Rent a skiff for and hour-ish ride up the lake, then enjoy about 30 minutes of hiking into the Lake Clark National Park mountains. 
Bring a picnic lunch and explore the cave behind the cascading water. 

It's worth it!

Let us know when you want to start your adventure and we'll help you get to PTA!!

Fourth of July in PTA & Our Patriots

Every summer Sunday, around 5pm, two planes swoop into Port Alsworth with patriots. Veterans who have seen battle and were physically wounded. Freedom Fighters with invisible scars that need healing spiritually and emotionally. 

As the planes fly over the town, and bank back for landing, the men and women peer out their windows and can see a crowd of people collected at the Hardenburg Bay end of runway AK51. The Port Alsworth community has gathered with flags waving to welcome them home. 
It is often the only welcome home they have received!

Many of them went from war to the ER where amputations and surgery saved their lives. They've come to Port Alsworth to purposefully engaged in a thought process that gives their life new purpose. To be encouraged, prayed over, and loved on. To talk, cry, and explore. To heal.

There are often tears in the eyes of the warriors and their spouces as they walk down the line shaking hands with the Port Alsworth locals. And the locals get choked up too saying their thank-you's and welcome home. 
So this year as you gather to celebrate the freedom you have as a USA citizen, say a prayer of thanks to God for this amazing country, and find the active duty and veterans among your circle and thank them for their service and sacrifice too. 

Lake and Pen Air wishes you a very Happy 4th of July!!

LPA - Family Owned and Operated

Dave loves working with his son Lyle, and helping him continue the successful business he passed onto him. 
Their top goal is safety, but closely followed is the goal of making life fun for the other. 
Here they are packing the caravan to the gills for a charter heading out west.
The things that don't fit go back in the hanger until the next flight.
Then they take a little time to worship Lyle's baby. Maybe one day she'll take over for her Papa. 
I know Popie Dave would be so proud! It's like Hank Williams Jr. famously sang... "It's A Family Tradition".
