About​ Northwind

     Northwind Aviation, LLC is an FAA-certified unlimited air carrier located on Beluga Lake in Homer, Alaska. It was founded by Jose de Creeft in 1992 and recently sold to Scott and Barbara Jackson. Scott serves as one of our pilots. 

     Northwind Aviation operates a Cessna 206, a de Havilland Beaver and a de Havilland Otter year-round. In the summer we operate from Beluga lake on floats and in the winter from the Homer airport on wheels/skis and amphibious floats.
