    I think it depends on the employer and whatever deal they have with their insurance company.

    For example, last year I had a very experienced C-206 and Beaver pilot who needed 40 hours of Alaska float-plane time to make an employer's insurance company happy. So we flew all over the place in my Cub for a few days... It was the least expensive way for him to built that time.
    I have done the same thing with three of four other pilots.

    Many Alaska flight operations accept equivalent time (mountain time) in place of the desired "Alaska time."


    The more experience (i.e.flight hours) you have, the less likely it is that you'll have a problem getting an Alaska flying job,
    especially with a lot of mountain time. When you send out resumes, stress your mountain time.
