    Unless it kills them first. ;)

    *Perhaps gratuitous prophylactic caveat: I flew there, so I guess I've earned my right to be snarky.

    From where and to where would one be commuting? Are people living L48 and commuting to Anchorage?

    Inspect the cargo of the plane you're flying. You're probably carrying your own insufficient funds notice.

    I have met a couple of the management folks for Grant and they seemed like normal human beings who were trying to run a functional operation in the face of near-insurmountable odds. OTOH the couple folks I met from Hageland/Ravn management seemed very, very sharp and definitely safety minded and forward-thinking, not at all the western Alaska deviant stereotype.

    A lot of guys out west commute from the lower 48. I have not worked for Grant, but at other companies some pilots commute from other countries!

    Well it is a lot cheaper to have your winter home in a 3rd world country and all. I mean it beats Nor Cal for sure in terms of cost of living.

    If you want to live in a third world country, no need to commute away from bethel on your days off.

    Bethel seems nice compared to Emmonak. The Grant terminal there does not have any sort of water or sewer. Literally a trash bag in the toilet..

    There are third world countries so poor that the women can't afford full-length skirts...

    "Bethel seems nice compared to Emmonak. The Grant terminal there does not have any sort of water or sewer. Literally a trash bag in the toilet.."

    Alaska Airlines in Bethel would come in and take all the water from the airport terminal tanks for ballast. Think they did this after a combi-737 would unload freight and be forward CG. Our manager at PenAir got sick twice and the primary culprit seemed to be the terminal in Bethel after Alaska Air would do this because then there were no flush toilets and people couldn't was their hands. It was after seeing this that I understood part of the contempt in which some of my truly Alaska bred pilot friends would call them Seattle Air or Loafer Air.

    Employers are required to pay for training. It's federal law.
