Mark founded Steller Air with a passion for floatplanes and a lot of Alaskan experience. Mark has lived in Alaska for over 25 years, first coming from Maine for summer cannery work, then working in journalism and eventually, fishing and piloting. He has been flying since 1987, when he began herring spotting. Along with running an air taxi, Mark fishes salmon in Bristol Bay. He lives in Homer with his family year-round.
Andrei moved to Homer in 2006 after two years of flying in Western Alaska. Prior to that he had three seasons of flight seeing and transporting river rafters around Grand Canyon with a stint of flying freight at night around Texas and Louisiana. He started flying in 1997 in San Diego. Whenever possible, he also answers Steller Air phone and emails.
