Jeff DeFreest submitted this photo and note: “A busy summer GA day. I arrived in Petersburg at Lloyd R Roundtree Seaplane Facility (63A) in Alaska to pick up a southbound charter passenger for Ketchikan, just as the Scott was departing his own base on a charter elsewhere. Summer time in Southeast Alaska can be a real busy flying time, if the weather cooperates. We are moving around remote lodge guests, US Forest Service rental cabin campers, mining and exploration teams, fishermen, and government personnel, just to name a few. I love the energy of it, and the missions are different every day.”

Rob Stapleton submitted this photo and note: “I was leaving Lake Hood after a photo shoot and took a back access road to Lake Hood from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and noticed the moon rising over the Chugach Mountains. After positioning my vehicle on the tie-down ramp in Echo parking I grabbed a few frames of this Cessna ascending into a moonlit evening. This was the first frame of a motor drive series of three frames taken with a Canon 5DSR and a 100-400mm zoom lens.”
“Flying in Alaska is unlike any other place in the United States,” said Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen. “T-routes will provide pilots additional options for completing their missions safely in this uniquely challenging environment.”
