Petersburg is also home to an airport and seadrome. The 6,000’ x 150’ paved and lighted airport is home to 2 fixed wing amphibious air taxis and a helicopter charter firm, as well as being serviced twice daily by Alaska Airlines 737 jet service from both Seattle and Anchorage. 100LL and Jet A fuel are available, as well as tie downs. The airport is located 1 mile SE of downtown. The seadrome, _ mile SW of downtown, is home to 2 float equipped air taxis and has a float for loading and off-loading as well as run-up ramps for overnight stays. No fuel is available at the Seadrome.

Scenery abounds for the “flightseer”! A 45 minute flight will readily acquaint you with glaciers, alpine and lower wilderness lakes, as well as fishing and hunting areas. and perhaps a few whales! If you come equipped for water landings, there are many lakes and inlets to fly to, some of which have USFS cabins, which can be rented by prior reservation.
