Our first Oddball Pilot Aircraft Walkthrough features Talkeetna Air Taxi.
TAT has been around since the early days of Alaskan flying, helping pioneer flights to Mt. McKinley, finding glacier landing sites, supporting climbing expeditions, and assisting with mountain rescues. Today the company also provides more extensive expedition support, including logistical support, route checks, and helping climbers recon new routes.
In this video, Talkeetna Air Taxi owner and Director of Operations Paul Roderick introduces you to two of the most rugged bush planes in existence: the de Havilland DHC-3 Turbine Otter and DHC-2 Beaver.
