I know that Alaska is not hiring right now, but does anyone know if the 750 PIC min requirement is Part 1 or Part 61?
Singlecoil said:Actually they are hiring right now. Interviews will commence near the end of the month. I can't answer your question though, sorry.
GuppyPuppy said:Hey Singlecoil -
First of all, GREAT avatar! Purple haze for everyone!
Do you think you could get Capt. Majer to lower the PIC turbine requirement to allow a former bush pilot to get an interview???
Still hoping that one day I can operate an Alaska jet into my hometown - JNU.
Singlecoil said:Since our pay is down in the bottomfeeder range now I would think something would have to give to fill the ranks. Being a former bush pilot definitely helps, though. It seems they like to have several sources: military (about half), Horizon/other regionals, and guys/gals with bush experience. If your experience touches more than one of those, that could be a plus.

A few years ago before I was furloughed from United I was talking with a friend of mine at Alaska. He told me that with my background of being a United pilot I could pretty much kiss my chances of flying for Alaska goodbye.
Still hoping...should have the PIC by this time next year.
