Default Article about Kenmore Air

A recent FLYING magazine article featuring Kenmore Air had some good things to say about the operation and the people running it. I know there are quite a few pilots on this forum that have worked there and I just thought you guys/glas would like to know that the story was favorable.
Also - - sounds like some really interesting flying! I don't remember because it has been far too long; but I think that Kenmore Air was the closest I came to getting a flying job when I applied all over the place right after college and getting my Comm/AMEL w/ instrument rating. I had about 300 TT and a still wet ME and I wasn't even close I just remember that it was a seaplane outfit out of Seattle. Logical assumption wouldn't you say?

It's a good thing you came into your current career rather than going for it via Kenmore. Trust me, you are much better off, and in a much better position going forward....

At least they were courteous and answered my inquisitive letter. It was the final straw that led me to realize that I was woefully unprepared for a future in aviation without some serious contacts in the industry.

Most of the contact information I was given from the site was outdated and useless. Most letters came back with a 'Undeliverable' note from the post office !
