Sheldon air service was incredibly flexible for us and our plans. Out pilot, David, who had been flying for 38 years and as incredible. Pointed out all kinds of interesting things. The glacier landing was incredible. It is a once in a lifetime experience!

Absolutely incredible flight. The views were the best I've ever seen. The friendliest team, Holly and David, welcomed us immediately and made us feel at ease before takeoff and hung with us after landing. Couldn't recommend it more.
