Meekin's Air Service
Mike Meekin began his air service in 1981: moving hunters, hikers, mountaineers, geologists, gold miners, residents, and photographers into the un-trod realms of the surrounding mountains.
Meekin's Air Service provides flightseeing trips over the Chugach Mountains, tracks wild animals for the Federal Fish and Wildlife Service, shuttles officers for Fish and Game and flies support for the National Outdoor Leadership School. In an average year he’ll spend a thousand hours in the air and may cover more territory than is encompassed by the entire state, from Bethel to Whitehorse and Valdez to the Arctic, in a two-seater fabric plane.
His safety record is greatly coveted by other professional pilots. Mike's eldest daughter Samantha (Founder of Alaska Wilderness Trails) married Matthew Keller of Wasilla, Alaska. Matt also is an experienced pilot who has been flying with Meekin's Air Service for several years.
Currently the two pilots operate three Super Cubs and two Cessna 185s.
