Customer Responsibility

Copper Valley Air Service is located in Glennallen, Alaska. Most Copper Valley Air flights depart from Glennallen, AK. Copper Valley Air can arrange for pick-up and air transfers from Anchorage, Valdez, and Fairbanks, Alaska to Glennallen or you can travel to Glennallen by your own means. If your trip is for fishing you must purchase a valid fishing license and stamp for the days you will be on your adventure. If your trip is for hunting all licenses, observance of regulations and due diligence is your responsibility.  We will take care of everything else. Once you arrive in Glennallen we will provide transportation to and from your trip.

Weather, weight, and bulk can require second flights. This is at the pilot's discretion and will be the customer's responsibility to pay for any additional flights.  


Copper Valley Air only provides charter flights in Visual Flight Rules (VFR) conditions.  It goes without saying that summer weather in Alaska is unpredictable, and while we typically are forced to cancel less than 5% of our flights throughout any given season, there are a handful of days we experience significant delays or cancellations due to clouds and precipitation.  Your safety is our greatest concern, and we will never fly when it is unsafe to do so. It is important to allow enough time and flexibility in your travel itinerary to get to your destination if your flight is indeed delayed or canceled and you have to take ground transportation.  Know what your backup plan is.

Bookings and Deposit

We require a 50% deposit at the time of booking. Balance is due before departure of your scheduled flight or if booking within 30 days of flight.

Give us a call and we will assist you in rescheduling or changing your package. On occasion, we may be able to fill your vacancy.

Fuel Surcharges 

Effective June 21st, 2022, we will be implementing a fuel surcharge for flights. This price will be added to your final balances due. These prices will be adjusted on each aircraft's fuel burn and the US Energy Information Administration Fuel Surcharge Tables. The furl surcharge amount will vary depending on the fuel burn of your plane but will be between 7% and 11% of the total price. We hope the fuel prices stabilize where they are, but may need to adjust this as time goes on. This scale will be for charter flights, backcountry flights, float plane flights, and any other hourly-priced flights. 

Flightsees and scheduled flights between McCarthy will be an additional 10% per seat. 


Weather is a factor that can impact flying in Alaska. Any flights canceled due to weather will be refunded in full by Copper Valley Air Service.

Cancellation more than 30 days before the flight will result in a fee of 10% of the total flight cost. Cancellations less than 30 days before the flight will have a 50% fee. Cancellation on the day of the flight will have no refund.
