The Guardian Flight family is devastated to report that a company aircraft flying from Anchorage to Kake, Alaska has been reported missing. Three Guardian Flight employees, a pilot, nurse, and paramedic, were aboard the aircraft, a twin-engine King Air. Our thoughts and prayers go out to our fellow employees and their families during this very trying time.
A search for the aircraft and crew is underway and Guardian Flight has initiated a stand down of the company’s entire fleet until further information is available. Guardian Flight will be cooperating fully with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). We will post more information on this site as it becomes available. — Randy Lyman, Senior Vice President of Operations, Guardian Flight
