Best locations for bush flying in Alaska

Recommended Posts

So I'm using OnAir to fly some cargo and pax back & forth in a Caravan and I'm loving it. Currently flying around in Southern Africa, but I've always been tempted to do some bush flying in Alaska. I checked out the Inner Passage last night but wasn't really blown away by it. Any location in Alaska you guys can recommend for a bush flying HQ, with good photogrammetry etc?

Someone did a freeware Unakaleet airport I'd recommend that.  Thats the area that the TV show Flying Wild Alaska was filmed in.

I ended up flying between 2 of the Aleutian islands courtesy of FS Economy's out-of-date database, and loved it.  ATU (on ATTU) turns out to have an incredibly scenic approach from the SW.  And sad though I am to admit it, I don't think I ever knew this chain existed.  Contains both furthest West and furthest East spots in the US, and is in part a good deal closer to Russia than mainland US.  Love it when FS gets me onto wikipedia for half an hour to follow up the flying.  MSFS20 also has the advantage that abandoned airfields are still there, since of course the runway is still there on the satellite image.

Might I recommend this video by a community member. Some inspiration if nothing else. If you haven't seen it already:
