Why Alaska Seaplanes


Our people are the heart of our business. Our employees make the difference, striving to fly at a higher standard 360 days a year. A higher standard means safety and reliability are the core of our business. Our Management Team has over a century of Alaskan aviation experience combined. We pride ourselves in the relationships we have developed with our employees, customers and community members over the years.


Alaska Seaplanes is proud to deliver a way of life to the people (and four-legged friends) of 12 remote communities. We transport our customers for various reasons, including medical appointments, student extracurricular activities, business and leisure. Don’t forget the essentials, Alaska Seaplanes provides timely delivery of essential supplies like groceries, medicine, mail, and on occasion, pizza deliveries.


We “grow our own” and offer many advancement opportunities. Our variable fleet offers qualified pilots the chance to begin in a Cessna 206 and progress to the historical DeHavilland Beaver on floats and eventually on to the Pilatus PC-12. The same growth opportunity is offered in every department from Customer Service to Administration. Industry-experienced individuals are highly encouraged to apply, and will find that our standards, commitment to safety, investment in our equipment and people are why Alaska Seaplanes is flying at a higher standard.
