Rusts began operations in 1963 and has continuously grown its fleet. Today Rusts and K2 Aviation are based at Lake Hood and Talkeetna, Alaska. The 2 airlines operate passenger and cargo flights around the region as well as a number of sightseeing services.
After a company presentation by Todd Rust and a pilot presentation of an aircraft cockpit and outside walkaround we are off for flights to several of the Lakes in the area. We also go on a Mt McKinley viewing tour and a Prince William Sound viewing tour and end with another first in the series as we make a glacier landing! All in all a wonderful Alaskan adventure!
Rusts is the only authorized airline to land in Denali National Park. Ruth Glacier is located at an altitude of 6,000 feet & offers the closest possible views of Denali (formerly Mt McKinley), North America's tallest peak at 20,310 feet.
