Backcountry Photo Flight

Aerial Photography

Flight Details

Shooting with an iPhone, a digital SLR, or a large format camera, you can capture spectacular landscape images from the air. Tell us when and where you’d like to go, and we’ll take you there.* Or let the pilot be your local guide. We will be sensitive to location, altitude, lighting, and airplane positioning. Visibility is excellent in all directions, and the passenger can open and close a side window at will for the best possible image quality.

Begin Your Adventure

We love flying in the mountains. As climbers, we recognize the value of scoping alpine objectives and approach routes from the air before making a larger commitment.

Our flights provide quick access to the backcountry for direct, accurate information that is not possible to obtain any other way. We’ll fly with you and your climbing partners to evaluate and document your obsession.

*Photography flights over North Cascades National Park are not currently permitted. Stay tuned for updates; we hope to offer this service in the future.

Customer Feedback & Photos

Greatest Flight Experience

"This photo was taken last weekend from a small plane above the North Cascades. It was the greatest flight experience I've had in my life so far. And it was mainly due to having an amazing pilot, Wayne from @snowkingaviation. Like myself, Wayne is so enthusiastic about the outdoors and that was evident when he circled this lake a bunch of times to help me get this shot."
