These tours were made last summer, but were not flown by very many pilots.  The clients listed in the flights have already been flown, so before you fly them, contact me for new clients.  Actually if you have Tongass Fjords scenery, it is best to start in Tongass Fjords.  The Tongass Fjords Lighthouse Tours are posted in Dispatch under, Tongass Fjords Charters.  The clients that you take stay with you for all flights.  All flights have a flight plan and maps.  I put a lot of work into them, but I enjoyed every minute.
