Where to charter a float plane

There is a group of about 12 of us that fish a remote river in Alaska. We have had to fly into Dillingham from Anchorage and then take a floa plane back to the river camp. The flight connections back to Oregon can sometimes keep us overnight in Dillingham. Who flies charter flights out of Lake Hood to remote camps like ours for about 6 people and their gear...probably 2 trips or 2 planes?

I'm sure there are several, but the only one I know of would be Rust's.

I would avoid Regal Air. They pulled a last-minute cancellation on me last month. Definitely something you don't want to happen to you with such a trip.

Rust's are the best, I think, but they are very busy usually so I would contact them ASAP.
