Ketchikan, Alaska Floatplane Air Taxi Services

                        Based out of Ketchikan, Alaska, Carlin Air provides floatplane tours and private charters for the greater Ketchikan area including Misty Fjords. Alaskan bush pilot, Jeff Carlin, was born and raised in Ketchikan and is widely regarded as one of the area's top local pilots.

His exemplary bush piloting skills are well known in the local community and is the reason why he is the pilot of choice for locals who understand the importance of having a locally knowledgeable bush pilot familiar with the terrain and weather patterns. It is no coincidence that the US Department of Interior and Alaska Department of Fish and Game often utilize Carlin Air for expeditions into remote Alaskan wilderness.
