Tanalian Aviation Reviews

“Breathtaking and spectacular views you will ever see”

I am so grateful for Tanalian Aviation and the life time experience that they provided for my daughter and I. It was my daughters 10th birthday and it was a surprise gift to land on a glacier in a helicopter and play on 500ft of ice underneath of us! It was one of the most breathtaking and spectacular views you will ever see.
Our pilot was very accommodating and gave so much interesting facts of nature all around us, it was great! The entire experience was unforgettable and it is a day neither my daughter nor I will ever forget.

Thank you Tanalian, we can’t wait to do it again!!

“The most Comfortable and Thrilling Tour Ever”

Tanalian Aviation and their personnel, Joel, Josiah and Pablo provided my wife and I with a once in a lifetime experience. Their friendliness and attention to safety made the helicopter tour and glacier landing comfortable and thrilling. I would 100%
recommend this tour and Tanalian to anyone going to Alaska! See some of Alaska’s majesty in a most unique way.

“The Best Tour EVER

We went out with Pablo three weeks ago to Knik Glacier and it was truly amazing. He was fantastic about putting me in great positions for the best photographs which is important since I’m a photo. He would go higher, lower, make a second (or third) pass, and find great angles. We absolutely loved our trip and would recommend it a hundred times over.



“Great & Professional Company”

We wanted to get married on a glacier and decided to use this company after speaking with Joel, the owner. He was very patient with all of our million questions and dozens of phone calls! In typical bride fashion I arrived at our pickup site over an hour late, but our pilot, Josiah, was very kind and understanding about it. He even had some great suggestions for pictures! This is a great, professional company and we’re already planning another trip up!
