Your pilot, Mike, has been flying in Alaska for over 10 years and is proud to call Seward his home. Mike’s flying career began back in 2006 in the Arizona desert where 330 days of sunshine a year is the norm.

After a few years of flying in Arizona, Mike traveled overseas to South Korea and began instructing aviation students how to fly these amazing machines.

After his journey abroad Mike spent some time flying in sunny South Carolina before moving north to Alaska where he joined a well established helicopter company.


After flying in Seward for a few years he opened Marathon Helicopter in 2016. 

Here at M.H. we absolutely love what we do. Whether we are flying you on a tour, dropping you off for an afternoon of kayaking or fishing, or bringing you a resupply of gear to your remote can count on Marathon Helicopters for first class service and the biggest smile you will get while in The AK! 

Come fly with us! We can’t wait to meet you!
