    I know quite a few of their former employees. I always wondered about the turn-over rate. Were it not in Anchorage I am bored enough that I might even try to become another former employee myself. But I can only spend a few hours in Anchorage before I get the willeys and have to leave..

    They seem to attract the retired FAA types. This is to their detriment for the most part. I'm finding that most operators/pilots consider the Medallion Program to be a waste of time. The data collected from the ASAP Program could be useful, but we get back to who is utilizing it. What do you expect from a bunch of retired FAA types....

    I used to be one of their Simulator CFi / coaches... Back when they had an interest is general aviation. Without Uncle Ted pushing that was quietly dropped along the road.
