Talkeetna Air Taxi (est. 1947), originally called Talkeetna Air Service, is an Alaska-based flight company.[1] It operates wheel-ski equipped bush planes, and is one of less than a half-dozen air services with a permit to land in Denali National Park. Historically business included supply runs to remote homesteads and prospecting claims—though in the past decade traffic has been primarily tourist and climber related.
