Happy Customers

Judy, thank you for a great hunt!!!!!!!!!!!!!     Brooks Range Aviation treated us like GOLD!!!!!  This was our first time Caribou hunting in Alaska and we were not sure of anything.  Judy at Brooks Range Aviation made it simple for us and took out the guesswork for the trip. Judy’s website suggestions on what to bring was accurate. If you forgot some food or other misc. supplies, they have it there and the prices were the same as I pay back home. Stay in their cabins for a night, they are inexpensive. Judy and staff at Brooks Range Aviation were great and we look forward to booking our next trip with them!      Thank you!

Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for looking after my mate and I on our trip to the Gates of the Arctic.
You guys were nothing but professional and allowed us to get to country we could never hope to discover ourselves.
Enjoy and we hope to return some day!

Brooks Range Aviation has been safely flying my clients for years into my remote camps. Although my trips are on horseback, we depend on Brooks Range Aviation to get our clients into our area and back. Thank you Jay and Judy for all the air support.

When you fly into the Brooks Range, you want to fly with the best. We've been running trips in this wild land since 1979 and we wouldn't fly with anyone else but Brooks Range Aviation. They're not only the most competent, trust-worthy pilots, but their friendliness and customer service is outstanding--they're the best.

Brooks Range Aviation dropped me off on my first commercial trip in the Brooks Range in 1979. Reliability and good judgement are priceless in this business and this is exactly why we still choose Brooks Range Aviation today.

Guiding for almost 20 years over most of Alaska, I am flying every year many times into remote wilderness corners of Alaska. I want to have a safe flight for my clients and myself. Flying with Brooks Range Aviation always gives me this comfortable and safe feeling. They know what they are doing in this great wilderness the Brooks Range and I trust their judgment.

Brooks Range Aviation offers professional flying and attention to safety, not to mention a friendly atmosphere and great staff. Thank you, Jay and Judy for a wonderful trip.

 We had planned, then had to cancel the same trip in 2009, so we were quite disappointed when it appeared the 2010 hunt would not work out. Why it was a near miracle for us. Thank you again. Very best to you BRA in 2011. -Dwight Gurley

I concur completely. They turned a disaster into an unforgettable experience. I have strongly recommended them to a lot of people since our trip. Every aspect of their service was outstanding. -Ty Moffett, hunting partner

"Of all the air taxi services I've used in the Brooks Range over the past 18 years, I think Brooks Range Aviation is the best. With their superior customer service and excellent safety record, they are a class act. I'd fly anywhere with them."

We know that choosing the right flying service is a major factor in the success of each trip. That is why we have chosen Brooks Range Aviation. They are honest, reliable, and extremely conscientious in maintaining their equipment. To be honest, we have never done comparative price shopping for flying service because that is the one aspect of our trips we are unwilling to compromise. We simply fly with the best.

Brooks Range Aviation is a solid, safe outfit. They'll always try to get you in and out on time, and if you've got a big party, their 'armada' of planes are the best thing going.

David van den Berg Arctic Wild

With the able assistance of Jay and Judy at Brooks Range Aviation we discovered the magnificent Brooks Range in 1999, got hooked, and have been back ever since. For many years we flew with bush pilots all over Alaska. Of all of them, Brooks Range Aviation is by far the safest, most reliable backcountry flying service we have ever flown with. Jay maintains his planes in top condition. He and all of the other BRA pilots are skilled, highly experienced, personable, and they really know the country.

My son and I booked a caribou hunt through Brooks Range Aviation in August 2011. Having never taken on such an adventure we were understandably a little jittery. Fortunately from the outset, Judy, Jay, and their crew of professionals put our minds at ease with answers to all of our questions and helpful advice. As our pictures show, our success was beyond our wildest dreams. We watched no fewer than 50 caribou per day over the six days we were out, and found our biggest dilemma was which ones to take. Thanks Brooks Range Aviation for a trip of a lifetime!

Robb MacDonald, Adventurer

We just wanted to say Thank You again for the flight into the Gates to drop off Brent and Kyla and the flight back in to pick them up. I know that to you all, flying in Alaska is a normal part of life, but to us from Southern California, it is an awesome adventure.
Looking at pictures makes us want to go back, someday!!!

Attached is a picture of the Beaver when we landed on Chimney Lake. Our best to you all and Thank You one more time

Just a short note to let you know how much we appreciate you and Brooks Range Aviation. As you know the logistics of a hunt like this can make it or break it. The weather was good and everything went like clockwork. Pilots Dan and Scotty were very customer oriented as well as good pilots. We relied on your expertise for the right spot to hunt with kids and your selection was perfect.
