Astonishing Flight with Katherine
We thought our flight around Denali the day before was great, but this one around Mt Sanford and Mt Drum was even better. Pilot Katherine flew us close to the peaks, over herds of Dahl Sheep, and shared much of the history of these mountains. I’m a 12,000 hour ATP rated flight instructor. I can tell you that her flying skills are as sharp as any pilot I’ve ever flown with!
