    500 PIC is pretty low time for a Commercial multi. Too low actually.
    Too bad it is up in Los Anchorage.

    I believe that AK Dept. of Admin requires that recruitment ads show minimum qualifications for the position. The pilot hired will likely have considerably more than the minimum hours.

    I don't think there are any age restrictions, IndyCzar. If you have taildragger instructing experience, that's what they're looking for.
