Tanalian Aviation Reviews

Spectacular Pilot, We had a Blast!


Josiah was a spectacular pilot and flew the Raven like it was an extension of his mind! Safety and comfort were paramount with the experience. We had a blast! Awe struck by the beauty of the mountains, water and glaciers. We were up here on business and took some time to enjoy a spectaculur tour to celebrate Veteran’s Day with our Paw! We will definitely be back!

Thank you Tanalian Aviation

I had a chance to call the folk at Tanalian Aviation to order some apparel and had a chance to speak to all of the folks via speaker phone..I wanted to thank them for spotlighting Heli Aviation as it’s a very small segment of the aviation industry..I wanted them to know I was a newbie in to the rotorcraft industry and their constant discussions on their TV show regarding safety and safe aeronautical decision making is very heartfelt and genuine. The discussion about the clouds, weather and wind are very comforting knowing I am being ingrained with the same safety information and these folks have been doing it for years and years..
I wish all of you safe flying…I know your clients are in very capable & safe hands.


“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!!

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.
