Don "Beau" Owens

Seven years ago I flew into the Wrangell St Elias National Park with Wrangell Air and from that moment on I wanted to fly in Alaska.  


The landscape and weather extremes add to this last frontier.  

I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas.  My parents were adventure seekers and I am following in their example. 

My wife and I now live on Kodiak Island where I fly for Island Air.  Come experience life on the frontier with us.
