I am getting out of the military in 2009. My goal is to get my Airframe and Powerplant License and my private pilot's license before I depart the military. That will hopefully get my foot in the door, so that one day I can become a bush pilot. Do you guys think that I would have any problems getting a job in the Anchorage area? I will have 10 years experience rebuilding, inspecting, and running gas turbine engines! Thanks
Try to pick up as much as you can about fabric and dope. A HUGE number of fabric planes live in Alaka!

Once you begin rubbing shoulders with other Alaska flyers and mechanics, the door will swing open for you.
Best of luck,
