Hi Alaska pilots (and alums), I am looking to potentially work in Alaska. From what I know they start taking applications around March for the late spring-summer. At this point I am going to go for either Freight or Alaska, well, does not have to be mutually exclusive though. I meet 135 Pic minimum except for night (50 short). 1385 total time. If you know any Alaska operator you would recommend or want to talk about Alaska in general please go ahead and respond! I will put up with anything (lack of civilization, lack of good sushi, etc will not be an issue.) However I would not be too interested in flying unairworthy equipment, breaking regulations (rest, VFR minimum, etc) and anything inethical. I hope that is not too much to ask for. I have look up "Alaska" in the forum but figure I would post a new thread since some of the threads are from way back when and things do change. At this point I would prefer turbine time (twin would be better, single is still good). I could fly the 'jo but heard that generally they want a lot of multi time and 1500 total for that. At the end of the day what matters the most to me is getting to see and experience Alaska and perhaps meet some of you so I am not picky....pipeline patrol, aerial tour, etc, all fair game. I am hot for off field landing. Bush flying= exciting. Well, that brings up another question--do you have to be a cowboy to do real deal bush flying? Thanks for your feedback. Maybe I will see some of you out there this summer.
