Our 160hp Piper PA18 Super Cubs are two seat, single-engine, high wing, tailwheel airplanes. The Super Cub is the best airplane for aerial photography in the mountains, and flying in one is a thrilling experience. The overhead skylight, lower door, and side windows provide clear visibility in all directions. The passenger side window can be opened during flight for crystal clear photographs. The airplane is capable of slow flight and is maneuverable for close-up perspectives. It can be outfitted with floats, skis, and tundra tires for access to the wildest places. Our Super Cubs are currently configured with 31″ and 35″ Alaskan Bushwheels.
Supercub flights often follow the Range of Glaciers route, but we also fly custom options specified by the photographer. We cannot overfly North Cascades National Park, but we do fly the Park boundary and over other, spectacular terrain.
We love flying in the mountains. And as climbers, we recognize the value of scoping alpine objectives and approach routes from the air before making a larger commitment.
Our photo flights provide quick access to the backcountry for direct, accurate information that is not possible to obtain any other way. We’ll fly with you and your climbing partners to evaluate and document your obsession.
*Photography flights over North Cascades National Park are not currently permitted.
Snowking flights are ideal for aerial landscape photography. Visibility is excellent in all directions, and we will be sensitive to lighting and camera/airplane positioning.
If your flight is canceled due to weather, you can choose to reschedule, receive a full refund, or select a gift card redeemable for a future flight.
We are located on the edge of North Cascades National Park at Mears Field in Concrete, Washington. Our base of operations is the best location for flightseeing in the area. Surrounded by mountains, you’ll enjoy alpine spectacles right after take-off with no aerial commute to the scenery.
