Bald Mountain Air Service is the host of the May Homer Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center mixer. The mixer is from 5 to 7 p.m. today at Bald Mountain’s hangar at 3758 FAA Road next to the Homer Airport. There will be pizza and sodas, the chance to win a bear viewing trip and other door prizes. Bald Mountain Air also shows videos of the bear viewing adventures it offers throughout the summer. Visitors can learn about the company’s other operations supporting the oil and gas and mining industries, polar bear viewing to Kaktovik in the fall and medevac service for Alaska Regional Hospital.
Owners Gary and Jeanne Porter, as well as two of Bald Mountain’s pilots, the director of safety and the two staffers running the bear office on the Spit will be on hand.
