    ....but not likely right now. With the economy being slow, I know there are several licensed and experienced mechanics that are either out of work now, or about to be out of work. Don't stop finishing your licence, just understand that right now is a difficult time to start in this career field.
    IF, the economy turns around and tourism and freight picks back up again, then by all means, jump in and gain some experience with a wrench in the civilian sector. Best of luck to you!

    Lots and lots of fabric work comes with so many Super Cubs (and other fabric tail draggers) in Alaska. Be sure you can handle fabric work, which most of the "outside" world has precious little contact with . . . . .

    You'll love Alaska. Period.
