I have taken my chances with both . Flying in Alaska is an excellent way to see the state. I have taken floatplanes and wheeled planes. From Ketchikan, Talkeetna, Seward, King Salmon, Anchorage and probably elsewhere that I don't recall offhand.

My last plane trip was from Talkeetna in May. Flew to the Kahiltna Glacier basecamp, spent a good 1/2 hour there and returned. Sheldon Air Service did an excellent job and gave us a longer flight including glacier landing for the price of our Groupon, which didn't include a glacier landing. Kudos to them.
