Finding Their Wings

The Eager Eye puppy raising club in front of Alaska Airline's mock-up training aircraft
Alaska Airlines hosted the Eager Eye puppy raising club of Issaquah, Wash., at Alaska's Flight Operations and Training Center near Sea-Tac Airport in Seattle this past weekend. The club arranged the visit with the airline to give their pups an in-cabin airplane experience using the airline's mock-up training aircraft. The club's nine puppies were able to board the mock-up aircraft, sit with their raisers in real aircraft seating and have a life-like experience. The outing included beverage cart use, PA announcements, boarding, in-cabin luggage handling and de-planing. What an excursion!

  2. I am preparing for a trip the end of January and am half way between Seattle and Portland. My dog has not flown before so I am nervous. I'm trying to find out if there is a group I could do this with in the next couple of weeks. Email me at criker99@aol.com with any suggestions please.
