The Kenai Peninsula is a large peninsula jutting from the coast of South Central Alaska. The peninsula extends about 150 miles (240 km) southwest from the Chugach Mountains, south of Anchorage. It is separated from the mainland on the west by Cook Inlet and on the east by Prince William Sound. The Kenai Peninsula has many glaciers in its eastern and southern areas. It is home to both the Sargent Icefield and Harding Icefields and numerous glaciers that spawn off them.
This is a continuation or part 2 that we ran a couple of weeks ago in these parts which concluded that trip at Seward. In this subsequent excursion, we will commence our flight at Seward Airport (PAWD), explore most of the Kenai Peninsula and if time permits inspect the oil rigs/platforms in Cook Inlet before ending our journey on the mainland at Trading Bay, Alaska: Trading Post Production Airport (5AK0). ( 272 nm with nine landings along the way):
Airports along the route: PAWD*-0AK7-2AK4-AK07-flyby/KEB, flyby/PGM, PASO*-PAHO-00AK-flyby/NIN, 5KS-PAEN-5AK0.
