For the long-standing Homer locals, our name might sound familiar. The original Kachemak Air Service was started by Bill and Barbara de Creeft in 1967. They ran a successful air taxi in the Homer area for 30+ years and had a reputation for excellent and safe service. They have graciously allowed us to use their name, and we hope to honor them by continuing to provide the same quality of service they did for so long to Homer and the surrounding area.
WHO WE ARE
We are a family owned and operated business established in 2020. While we may be a new air taxi, owner and pilot Jimmy Christensen is anything but new to flying. He soloed at 17 and has been flying commercially in Alaska since age 19. Throughout his 20+ year career, he has accumulated more than 13,000 hours. For the past 8 years, he has been flying float planes in the Homer area. Jimmy has maintained a perfect safety record throughout his career and continues to make safety a priority on every flight. He has extensive experience operating on both wheels and floats in a variety of planes, including Cessna 206s, the DeHavilland Beaver and Otter, and the L19 Birddog.
When Jimmy isn't flying, he's usually watching videos about flying. Kidding! Sorta. Our family loves to hike and enjoy the outdoors as often as possible. We have three boys that all love to hang around the docks in the summer hoping for an empty seat so they can ride along with Dad.
