We’re looking for a current, Commercial Pilot for our Single Pilot FAA Part 135 summer operation. We specialize in flying our guests to the
Gates of the Arctic and Kobuk Valley National Parks for day tours. Come fly in the Brooks Range and make our guest’s “bucket list” items a reality. Our
summer flying season starts May 15 and goes through September 30. Salary is commensurate with experience, includes room and board in Bettles, and is negotiable.
We operate a Cessna 180J on floats and a DHC-2 on floats. Our pilot must have off airport experience. Insurance requires at least 2000 total time and 100 hours in a C180J and a DHC-2 (i.e., 100 hours in make and model). Our insurance company has been very strict about pilot experience and likely will not accept any pilot without at least the above qualifications.
Ultimately we are looking to partner with a full time Pilot for year round flying our DHC-2, C180-J & PA31-350. If you’re an A&P with I/A, even better!
If you’re up for adventure in Alaska, love flying and provide superior customer service, this is the job for you!! Give us a call at Bettles Lodge (907-692-5111), we want to talk to you!
