Discover McKinley

Prepare for a Great trip!

We think that the best way to enjoy the flight is to think of questions for your pilot. The Rust's pilots know a lot about Alaska and the area they fly over. The microphones are voice activated and work when they are almost touching your lips. You will get a more personalized tour if you ask questions!

You will be in a plane for about three hours total so we recommend using the toilet before the tour.  Rust's toilets located in the hanger building,  the red doors across from the office.

Remember to charge your camera batteries and ensure that you have enough video. We do have tips on taking photos from planes in the FAQ section.

It's best to dress in layers; the planes are heated and can get quite warm from solar heat in the summer. Flat heeled, sturdy shows are best since you will be climbing in and out of a plane. Strap cameras and valuables to yourself before getting in and out of planes. Pilots don't dive for items dropped in the lake.

Rust's makes a stop on the tour. It's fun and helps to stretch your legs on this extended plane ride.  The pilot picks the stop based on time of year, weather and scenic possibilities.

It's ok to bring a non messy, non smelly snack with you. It's also optional to tip the pilot.
