About Us
Harvey Flying Service is owned and operated by Steve and Mary Ann Harvey. We operate one airplane - a Grumman Widgeon with Steve as our pilot. We operate for 9 months of the year, from mid-March until mid- December.

Steve Harvey has been involved in Alaskan aviation all his life. While growing up he watched his father and uncle fly Grumman Gooses and Widgeons around the Kodiak Island area. When his parents started the first "Harvey Flying Service" in the late '50's Steve spent much of his free time lending a hand in the operation. Steve began to fly small planes when he was still in high school and knew that once he graduated, flying a seaplane commercially was to be his livelihood. Upon graduation though, his parents thought it would be handy to have an airplane mechanic in the family. Off they sent Steve to mechanic school in Kansas City, KS. Upon arriving at mechanic school, Steve promptly marched across the street to the local flight school and signed up for instruction for his commercial pilot's license instead! He returned to Alaska with his license in hand in 1966 and spent the next 10 years flying a variety of airplanes for air charter operations in Kodiak, the Kenai Peninsula and Southeast Alaska. The opportunity to fly a Grumman amphibian drew Steve back to Kodiak full time in 1976.

Mary Ann Harvey first came to Alaska during the Summer of 1976. When she returned to Seattle that Fall, she felt "that pull" drawing her back to Alaska. She was able to return to Alaska during the Summer of 1977 and has called Kodiak her home ever since. Married to Steve since 1981, she is part of many of the operations involved with running an air taxi business.
