Warbelow's Air Ventures is an American regional airline based in Fairbanks, Alaska, USA. It operates domestic scheduled passenger, charter, and tour services as well as flight tours, mostly throughout Interior Alaska. Its base is Fairbanks International Airport. It is affiliated with Sukapak, Inc.


The company was founded by Marvin E. Warbelow in 1958. It operated as 40-Mile Air (in reference to the Fortymile River) from 1970 to 1989, when it was split into two companies by Marvin's sons Charlie and Art. The base in Fairbanks, Alaska operated by Art Warbelow then assumed the name Warbelow's Air Ventures, Inc.. The base in Tok, Alaska continued to operate under the 40-Mile Air, Ltd. name. It was subsequently sold by Charlie Warbelow and continues to operate, mostly serving destinations along the Alaska portion of the Alaska Highway.
