Aircraft density around Mount McKinley can be quite high during the summer months. Air tour operators fly out of Anchorage, Talkeetna, Fairbanks, and the McKinley Park areas. For position reporting, this mountain environment has been divided into two "zones," one north and the other south of the crest of the Alaska Range.
The Denali Aircraft Overflights Advisory Council is developing voluntary measures for assuring the safety of passengers, pilots, and mountaineers and for achieving desired future resource conditions at Denali as outlined in the 2006 Backcountry Management Plan.
