Katmai Air


Our Fleet

With offices in Anchorage and King Salmon, our Katmai Air fleet consists of both float and wheel equipped aircraft, each of which must undergo extensive inspections by the FAA and adhere to strict 100-hour & annual maintenance schedules and repair procedures performed by FAA certified mechanics, under Part 135 operations.

The work history and flying experience of each pilot must also meet Part 135 requirements, which includes an FAA approved drug & alcohol testing program, development of an air carrier training program, preparation of a flight operations manual, development of a hazmat program for handling hazardous materials, and a requirement to register and show proof of insurance.

What does all this mean exactly? It means that our fleet is held to an extremely high safety standard. Safety is our primary concern here at Katmai Air and we’re dedicated to ensuring that you have a memorable experience by accessing Alaska’s wilderness in a safe and comfortable manner.
