Incredible evening flight tour of the glaciers and sunset. One of the best investments ever. Sound Aviation has an incredible depth of local experience and knows his way around the area. Not to be missed by anyone visiting Anchorage.

We did the last flight of the day and Bill gave us the best, we flew up to the Knic glacier, saw mountain sheep, moose all in 1 hour, really was an experience well worth every penny we spent. if we had time I would have taken the time to fly to Denali, next time i am in town:):)

We had a flight over Eagle Glacier. What a wonderful flight. Our experienced pilot Bill went out of his way to make sure we had the best views and was on the lookout for bears, mountain goats, and sheep. What an awesome experience. This was the highlight of our Alaska trip!!!! Will never forget it. Thanks Bill & Jill for... More

The pilot is very experienced. Gorgeous views from the plane. Love the experience. A little bit delay at the beginning. i was sitting at the middle seat, which was kind of small. But otherwise superb experience.

Thanks to the wonderful couple we had the chance to meet ! You can see the pilots passion still after all those years. The pictures are nice, nothing compared to the real experience, its a must in Anchorage. We looked the flightseeing tours available in Talkeetna, Seward and Anchorage, by far this one is an amazing price/quality !

I had an unplanned day in Anchorage before leaving Alaska so I called a few air sightseeing companies. There was no available sightseeing but Sound Aviation offered a seat on a 5 hour "grocery delivery trip" to three villages on the other side of the Alaska Range. The trip was breathtaking. Nothing, nothing can top this.

We had an amazing experience! We called that morning and left a message to see if we could do a flight tour that day, and Beth got back to me right away and was able to get us on a flight that evening. Our pilot Bill was very calm and in control and kept us at ease. None of us... More

We took a multi-generational flight seeing trip around Anchorage. Ages ranged from 3 years to 70+. We opted for the shortest of the flights offered due to the attention span of the 3 year old. Beth met us at the gate and we followed her to the plane. Bill was our pilot. He was the best guide. He learned a... More

Bill and Beth couldn't be more accommodating! We loved the flight - truly enjoyed our experience. Bill was an amazing guide, pointing out all of the sights on our way to Denali. On the way back, we spotted a momma black bear with four Cubs and moose a few different times. Very memorable trip! We highly recommend.
