Congrats! At least you didn't get Deadhorse! Kotzebue is some fantastic flying and decent weather believe it or not. Lots of cold, clear days and not much ice. Nome on the other hand...
I don't know anybody up there these days, but I showed up in Kotz one day in October several years ago and found a room in short order. People come and go, particularly in the fall.
I never flew for Smythe, but a lot of friends did. You'll make a lot of money, get multi-time, and get some great experience.

Thanks for your reply!
I am very excited for this opportunity and at the same time a little apprehensive. Did some flying in Achorage but, I am sure it's not the same.
Do you have any suggestions besides common sense in order to stay out of trouble?

Thanks again,

o

Trust your gut. Weather changes very quickly, and that little voice in the back of your head needs to be listened to and heeded. Also use your resources. All of the pilots up there work together. The names painted on the sides of the airplanes are different, but your are all in the same boat. Feel free to ask other pilots about weather, runway conditions, or anything at all and know you will get a straight answer, regardless of who they work for.
The village agents are also extremely nice. I've spent several nights stormbound in villages on somebody's couch. Like most Alaskans, the rural Alaskans really roll out the red carpet for visitors. But I would advise staying away from the whale blubber, or muktuk. Nasty.

Cape Smythe

I am interested in working for Cape Smythe. I understand that a class is starting on the 9th, but are they still hiring for near future? I hope they are since I am looking forward to moving up there and flying with them. Any thoughts would help in regard to what needs to be done to get in the door.
