Welcome to Taquan Air, Ketchikan’s finest float plane operation.  Our
fleet of eight Dehavilland Beavers provide service from Misty Fjords
Flightseeing tours to daily scheduled service to the bush communities
of SE Alaska.  Whatever your needs are let our staff at Taquan help
you realize your Alaskan Adventure.

Taquan Air is committed to having the nicest fleet of DeHavilland
aircraft in commercial operation while maintaining the highest level
of safety in ground and flight operations.  This goal begins with
aircraft maintenance and aesthetics.  The company’s comprehensive
maintenance program is staffed with a highly trained and experienced
team of aviation professionals working in a state of the art facility.

Taquan Air’s safety plan and culture start with the president’s
commitment, involvement, and dedication of company resources to
achieve safety standards above those required for FAA FAR Part 135 Air
Carriers.  Over the last six years, over $1,000,000 has been committed
to employee safety, systems and pilot training, and maintenance
upgrades to the entire aircraft fleet. The company’s safety plan has
been expanded to include participation in the nationally acclaimed
Medallion Program and FAA’s Capstone Program and Taquan continues to
be Ketchikan’s only 5 Star Medallion Shield Carrier.
