Mail Day! - 20 June With the helicopter!

Today’s the longest day of the year for us here in Alaska, parts of us will have 24 hours of sunlight, we also will slowly began to lose light as winter starts to come our way.
With the celebration of sun, it means mail day for the Island!

You know, I always see your post. And everytime I see them, I want to pack my stuff, travel to Alaska and join some of your flights. The pictures are stunning. Alaska seems so beautiful. At some point, I’ll definitely travel over there.

I’m looking forward to new posts!

Actualy @anon93248082 how does the all day dark or sun affect your operations? (winter is probably not what you want to think about…) 😛

Great question!
So in the winter depending on location, we have no legal day time that’s typically in Deadhorse, Alaska which is located here from my home base.

So we fly under our company regulations for night time operations.
Now it’s the complete opposite in the summer, we have no legal night time so it’s all day operations.

What do you do diffrently at night? Or is it just diffrent? I would assume it is all IFR right?

We still fly, only our operations miniums are higher. So let’s say that day time we need 3 mile vis, at night we’d need 5 mile vis
