Alaskan pilot Mike Collins takes viewers over the skies of Cordova in both a Super Cub and Cessna 185 in this highly entertaining video.

Using GOPRO mounted cameras he provides an excellent aerial view of the coastal town located on Prince William Sound. Fans of the Valdez Air Show will likely recognize Collins, a member of the unofficial Cordova Cub Club and a third generation Cordova pilot. In the video Collins shows some takeoffs and landings, awesome views of the mountains, the site of some of Cordova's finest out fishing and also how much fun it can be to bring your dog along for the ride. The state tourism board should hire Collins; everyone is going to want to fly over Cordova after watching this!
