I always thought I'd wind up flying aa out of the Navajo Res or somewhere else out west; it seems to fit me better than the airline thing.
I just wonder what that gig is like. Pay, lifestyle, work conditions? I imagine it varies from company to company?
(I know it's probably a step down from a good regional, but beauty lies in the eye of the beholder).
Thanks.

I didn't fly for Native Air, but I did fly the reservation for a couple of years, doing mostly ambulance. It is what it is.

I hear Chinle is paved now, and the airport has been moved. No more carrying a handgun there for the dog packs at night, no more hitting horses on the runway at night, no more getting shot by the kids with their .22's at night while taking off or landing.
