Living the Legacy

General Info
Sheldon Air Service is fortunate to be the embodiment of two generations of Alaskan aviation pioneers, Bob Reeve and Don Sheldon. But there is more to it than that.  Co-owner and Director of Operations David Lee purchased Talkeetna Air Taxi from Lowell Thomas Jr and operated it for years. His contribution to Alaska range bush flying and Denali glacier flying spans three decades.
People from all walks of life, from around the world come to Talkeetna each flying season for the unique opportunity to touch history as well as experience the adventure of climbing North America's tallest peak.  You can see it in their faces, hear it in their voices, feel it in their handshake.  It's the particular 'Joie de vivre' attained when one challenges oneself to live life on ones own terms, to dare to trade a bit of risk for the satisfaction of adventure accomplished.

SAS is preserving a heritage of decades of skillful and daring mountain flying in the simple act of living the legacy handed down by those who came before. Keeping the spirit alive in any true sense means continuing to do what it took to create the legacy in the first place. History is not just a faded black and white photograph on the wall in the flight office, it is vibrant and alive in the passengers and crew of every Sheldon Air Service flight.

You don't have to be a daring mountain climber to utilize Sheldon Air Service — although if you are, SAS can back you up with whatever it takes — all you need is a taste for the authentic and a willingness to find the real.
