    Talkeetna

    As a Ramp Agent your primary task is to fuel airplanes, clean and disinfect aircraft before each flight, load and unload passengers and maintain the ramp as a safe and operable area.

    Flight times are busy and fun. Ramp Agents are busy helping guests on and off aircraft, snapping pictures, fueling aircraft, washing windows and helping pilots get the aircraft ready for the next flight departure.

    When there are no aircraft loads to prepare or airplanes to fuel there are many other tasks to take care of. Yard work, ramp clean up, assisting the mechanics, and washing airplanes to name a few. These are all part of the day in the life of a Ramp Agent.

    Guests come from all over the world to climb, backpack and view Denali and the surrounding area. Climbing season is late April – June. The flight to base camp for mountain climbers is a wonderfully unique trip and getting these groups prepared to fly is something Ramp Agents specialize in.
