Coastal Air operates as a small entrepreneurial business. Ensuring that when you book with us, you will get nothing short of a one-on-one experience. Being able to talk first hand with our pilots, having specific-to-you drop off and pick up locations & times, allows us to guarantee that we will get you where you want to go, when you want to go.
Coastal Fuels was established in 2021 & has a 24/7 self-service fueling station and an appointment only full service truck. The self-serve was created due to the growing need for a 24/7 fuel outlet on the King Salmon Airport. The full service fuel truck was established in 2022 due to the influx of corporate & military jets needing servicing. As of 2023, Coastal Fuels offers Avgas (100LL) & Jet-A from it's self-service station and Jet-A from it's full service truck.
