This was absolutely amazing. If you are in Squamish you must do this flight! We did a 60 min flight and it was better than we could have hoped for. Our pilot Colette was excellent, she told us a lot about the area and we felt very safe during the flight!

I recently came to Glacier Air to take the introductory flight lesson on recommendation of a friend. Akshay was my instructor. On the first lesson, we had 30 minutes of flying time. We briefly covered all six maneuvers required for the PPL flight exam AND he took the time to point out some of the beautiful geographical landmarks. Highlights included... More

Four of us did a glacier flight which lasted about 1/2 an hours. It was the most amazing thing we have done. The pilot took us close to all the glaciers, over the town on Squamish, over the lakes...beautiful. The weather was perfect, fine and sunny. I would do a flight again if we ever go back. The price was... More

I'm very pleased and extremely happy I took the hour tour. Our pilot was very knowable of the area and thus a great tour guide explaining the area we were flying over. The skies were a little rough but he was able to keep the plane quite smooth and that was a good thing. Walking into the office we were... More

I went for a spin with two friends and Akshay as the pilot and, boy, was it exhilarating!
