Jackson, Wyo. • The owner of a new commercial scenic air tour business based out of the Jackson airport in Grand Teton National Park says his routes will not disturb park visitors.
"We don't need to fly in the park to give people an amazing aerial tour," Peter Lindell, owner and director of operations for Fly Jackson Hole, said.
Lindell said the scenic tour side of the business is still in a startup phase, but potential scenic routes would take clients over the Gros Ventre Range, Teton Pass and the west slope of the Tetons.
"I don't want to be the guy who's buzzing the Grand," Lindell said. "My contract with the airport board does not allow me to overfly noise sensitive areas of the park, and I don't want to do that. I want to respect the nature of the park
