I believe I first started subscribing to flyalaska.com in 2010. At that point Alaska was a dream and I was flying in the lower
48. I always have watched the hiring trends over the years and flyalaska.com has been extremely helpful. I got my first Alaska break
from a job posting on your website. Iliamna Air Taxi hired me to fly three different airplanes.
Boy, what an introduction to Alaska flying, Lake Clark, Lake Iliamna, and Bristol Bay. My flying career goals and my life have
changed as a result of
this first job opportunity I found on flyalaska.com. The job enabled me to purchase a 1946 Taylorcraft with floats,
wheels, and skis. Over the 2 1/2 years I've been at Iliamna Air Taxi I've built up enough float time to be hired as a float
pilot, which has now become one of my career goals.
I went from wanting airlines and shiny jets, to desiring wilderness
and the freedom of bush flying, all as a result of that three-line ad for a pilot for IAT on flyalaska.com. Now I'm on to my
second job from following your website. I've been hired as a float pilot at Andrew Airways in Kodiak.
Your resource is well worth the 27 dollar a year membership just to keep up with current hiring trends in one place. I suggest a
membership to all of my pilot friends. Your resources have helped me unequivocally truly live the dream! I can't imagine
navigating the Alaska aviation world without it!
Alaska bush pilots are essential
for transporting people,
supplies and equipment throughout the state. Most of Alaska is accessible by air, but not by road. Bush planes operate from the
northern most shorelines of the Alaskan arctic, to the southern most boundaries of the Alaska panhandle, west to the tip of
the Aleutian Chain and east into Canada. Alaska is huge.
Even big multi-engine airplanes land on remote frozen lakes
dead of winter to deliver all of the construction materials needed to build a large wilderness home. Single-engine Alaska seaplanes or
airplanes on wheels, or skis can land on ridge tops, glaciers, rivers, lakes, river bars or ocean beaches, miles from
civilization for any kind of Alaska wilderness adventure...hunting, fishing, prospecting, rafting, hiking, snow boarding,
photography, and much more. Helicopters provide access to otherwise inaccessible areas.
Launch an incredible wilderness adventure
Sea planes fly to remote lakes, rivers and salt water locations from southeast Alaska to the Arctic Ocean.
Wheel planes can land you on remote beaches, ridge tops, even mountain tops, and gravel bars.
Inexpensive scheduled flights fly to many communities in the state, delivering mail, supplies and
transporting people. Scheduled flights by Alaska air carriers will deliver you inexpensively, to the right starting place for an
incredible Alaska adventure.
Alaska air travel is necessary for the most interesting and unique wilderness adventures Alaska has to offer.
Alaska bush pilots will fly you to some of the wildest, and most beautiful places on the planet where you can roam
on remote pristine beaches, high-mountain glaciers (Mt. McKinley scenic air tours) or wilderness river shorelines.
The possibilities are endless. The Alaska wilderness provides for a huge range of interests,
budgets, and comfort levels.
Flight training in Alaska is fun and adventurous.
Any of several Alaska flight schools specialize in
pilot training from student pilot through private, commercial, multi-engine, instrument and ATP certification.
Tailwheel endorsements, float ratings, off-field flight, bush flying instruction and
mountain flying courses are all available from a variety of flight schools in Alaska.
Regardless of what kind of an Alaskan adventure appeals to you or what kind of cargo you might want to have flown to a remote Alaskan
location, Alaska aviation will provide the solution for almost any of your transportation needs.
Alaska bush planes and helicopters can fly you into some of the most magnificent
and awesome territory that America has to offer.
