Commercial Air

Alaska has commercial options for scheduled fixed-wing service to most remote villages. Your Battelle ARO project manager can provide a list of vendors for your flight requirements.  Most in-state flights are planned and paid for directly by the researchers. 

Chartered Aircraft

With NSF approval, Battelle ARO charters helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft for remote field projects. Your project manager will develop a custom flight plan around science objectives and provide information/support to your field team to ensure safe, efficient air operations.

Ground Transportation

Battelle ARO provides research teams in Alaska with various transportation options for science project use, including trucks/vans/cars for use around villages, ATVs, and snow machines.  Work with your Battelle ARO PM to outline your requirements so that the correct transportation mode can be built into your support plan.
