    Default Advice to Fly for Hire in AK

    Hello (to any AK Pilot with current info)

    I am trying to find out a few good AK operations to apply to.
    My Total Time is 1220/85Multi, no CFI. I would like to work for a
    company where I will be able to transition into a Multi-Engine,
    at some point,..But I'll take what I can get.

    So far, I am going to apply to Pen-Air, and maybe Ryan Air.
    Read on some post that Ryan does regularly fly into some of the
    worst wx up there? True?
    Pen-Air really does interest me right now because I would really
    like to fly a Caravan or a Saab.

    I've also talked to Yute Air in Bethel, but their pilots only fly 2
    weeks a month,.I do like that schedule, but I need to make
    a little more money than a 14 day month. Any additional info here
    would be great. Thank you-

    Don't forget to apply at Grant and Era. Most of the operators I know say the schedule is 2 on 2 off but it turns into more like 3 on 1 off.

    Default Hey Monguse

    I signed up on that Alaska.net site, really worth 27$
    for a year.

    Did you build time in AK? And now work in Hawaii?
    If you did, I gotta say that's pretty kick-ass,..

    31 years flying in Alaska, Slater, retired 2 years ago and flying now only recreationally here in Hawaii, although I flew volcano tours here for many winters. I flew 13 years winter, spring, summer, and fall in Alaska. After moving to Hawaii I still spent late spring, summers and fall hunting seasons in Alaska until a couple of years ago when I finally decided to hang it up and spend more time with my wife here at home.

    I was talking to a Grant station manager who told me that they were going to have a ground school in the coming months for pilots based in the YK delta. Good Luck
    The winner isn't the person with the most gold when they die, but rather, the person with the most stories.
