About Kingfisher Aviation in Kodiak, Alaska

Our family has a long history in the aviation industry, and it continues with brothers Glen & Kyle Eaton. Both brothers were born and raised in Kodiak where flying floatplanes is as natural to most people as driving a car. Glen started Kingfisher Aviation in 1998 with a 1947 Aeronca Sedan aircraft while working for Zachar Bay Lodge on Kodiak Island. We strive to provide our passengers a safe, reliable and fun flying experience - whether it is your first floatplane flight or you are a seasoned traveler.

Feel safe during your flying experience. Kingfisher Aviation & Kingfisher Air Inc are licenced and inspected to operate by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and State of Alaska. Our pilots are examined annually by the FAA. The aircraft are thouroughly inspected by and maintained by a certified mechanic every 100 flight hours - which is about once a month. We are CPR/First Aid certified and have special use permits to operate in the Kodiak Refuge, Katmai National Park and Alaska State Parks. We meet all the applicable insurance requirements by the state and federal goverment. Most important and is a mainstay in our company attitude is to NOT PUSH THE WEATHER. Glen & Kyle take a conservative attitude, and will cancel flights if they deem the weather is not (or will not stay) good enough to safely complete the flight. "Don't be a show-off. Never be too proud to turn back. There are old pilots and bold pilots, but no old, bold pilots" E. Hamilton Lee, 1949. The weather always clears and we plan to be here for a long time!

We are based in the city of Kodiak on the Lily Lake seaplane base and operate flights from April through November every day the weather is flyable.
