Get ready to learn all the ins and outs of flying internationally with this course, as we work our way east into Canada’s Yukon Territory. Our adventure will begin by crossing through Windy Pass on our way to Tok, via Fairbanks. In Tok, you will have the opportunity to ensure that all of your crossing documents are in order, and Canadian Border Patrol is prepared for our arrival.
As we depart Tok, we will wave goodbye to Alaska, and hello to Canada, inbound to Dawson City. Canadian Border Patrol will meet us at our aircraft in Dawson City to clear us through customs, and give us the go ahead to explore western Canada. Traveling through Canada will also give you the experience of learning how the rules, regulations, and procedures can change as you fly in foreign airspace. We will travel south through Canada stopping in Whitehorse, on our way to Skagway, and back into Alaska and the United States, giving us another border crossing. From Skagway, we will travel northwest to the Copper River Valley. After visiting Kennecott Mine, we will make a quick stop in Gulkana for fuel, before heading through the beautiful Matanuska Valley back to Talkeetna.
