Is anyone familiar with the primary (private) fixed wing and helo air ambulance companies in AK? The good, the bad and the ugly so to speak. I am looking for information on safety, credibility, reputation, employee turnover etc. Any information would be helpful.

I think the limited, personal experiences you would get from a small percentage of the population that is here, you would be better researching elsewhere, as would be limited...Alaska is bigger and more vast than CD and if you are looking at a job..I am sure anything that is actively in business, as big as this state is...is what you get...you don't have a lot of choices here at that point...what you get when you call 911 or need transportation to a major facility, is what you get...

Default underwater

Considering that the last helicopter I flew for them is now resting on the bottom of Prince William Sound in small pieces (with the loss of all onboard)...I could use a bit of that faith myself. http://www.adn.com/front/story/656044.html
