Default Anchorage FBO / Rentals

I am going to Anchorage, AK for the Army Jan 14-20 and will have a little
free time while I am there. Does anyone know of any good FBOs in Anchorage
where I can rent a 152 / 172. Even if it has to be with one of their
instructors, I just want to check out Alaska from above. Also, what about
floats? I wouldn't mind taking a lesson or two on floats, and I see a lot
of pictures of floats from Alaska.

Thanks,
Tom

No comment on the 'good or bad', but options in Anchorage include;

Take Flight
AeroTech
and if you can track them down
Herb Hubbard (Hubbard Aviation) used to have an office in 'The Hanger.Net'
and Dennis Safranek (Bush Air) rents out his 172 when he's not out of town
with it.

Also since it sounds as though your military, you should consider the
Elmendorf Aero Club.

You're not going to find anyone on floats in Alaska in Jan.

There's plenty of float flying going on in Alaska all year. Just not
so much north of about Yakutat.

I need to tell that to my nephew on Kodiak.

Ok Ok, I give!

I was speaking "in general" to the posters statement that he's was going to
be in "Anchorage" for 5 days in Jan. Generally speaking, in the Anchorage
area your not going to find anyone doing float operations in the middle of
January.

Although a couple of winters ago it was so mild that I did two separate
float ratings in March. That in it's self was pretty unusual.

Take Flight at Merrill Field gets my vote. I spent a week hanging around
with them buying an airplane. I pretty much bothered their shop guys
everyday and they never said "peep" other than "Good morning. What can we do
for you today?" Their shop is great, the instructors are great, the staff is
great.

Tom,

Grab an instructor and take a tour of some glaciers. I spent
several weeks flying all around Alaska and the glacier flying was
definitely the coolest flying of all.
