This is the former Blanding Air Ambulance/Scenic Aviation?

Not the same company that was doing one-hour annuals and operating airplanes with cracked spars?

Former Scenic Aviation. You are right, not the same company that was doing one-hour annuals and operating airplanes with cracked spars.

Still operated by a very close relative of the owner of the aforementioned company?

As a former employee of AMRG, I'll just put and end to your trolling right now, JohnBurke.

Yes this is the new version of the old Blanding Air Ambulance. They have come a LONG way from operating twin Cessnas off dirt strips on the "rez." Yes, the CEO / owner is the son of the original owner, and he is a good guy who is laser focused on growing a great business. The company has seen some insane growth, but I could always walk into the CEO's office to say Hi.

No, they don't do one hour annuals. I was on the King Air C90B, and never had any reservations about maintenance. Any issue I ever had was fixed quickly, and there were very few MELs.

I never had any pressure from management forcing to do flights in questionable situations. In fact, I turned down flights with critical patients that would have put my crew in danger, and I never once was second-guessed.

Pay is decent for King Airs, and varies across the different companies. You'll make more in Hawaii than Alaska. I enjoyed my time at AMRG and would certainly recommend working there to anyone who's interested.

There is no "trolling." The close relative of the former owner was one of those who was regularly observed conducting 1 hour annuals and 100 hours. Perhaps he had a change of heart.

The former owner, his father, would stop by the unheated single-wide trailer in which several pilots' families stayed, and demand to know why they didn't depart below minimums on flights in low weather and storms, to dirt runways with no approaches, and was heard to say "I don't care if you make it, I just need to show that you departed." He was also the same who said "You wouldn't complain to your college professor that your tuition cost too much, would you? Consider me your professor, and be grateful for the education that you get, working for me. By all rights, you should be paying me, instead of the other way around."

No doubt it's all changed, but somehow I doubt so. How often do leopards change their spots? The willingness to do whatever is required, whenever required, may be a thing of the past, but the past isn't that far away.

If that were true JohnBurke I doubt we'd be in business today. I cannot talk about the company 30 years ago because I was not here. Needless to say, the way the company is being ran today is magnificent, think what you want but our safety record and growth rate speak for itself. Thanks for replying though appreciate your concern!

You're quite defensive and quick to make assumptions.

The days of killing horses and hitting hogans with runway overruns, one-hour annual inspections, cracked spars, flying with gear doors removed, operating on broken landing gear, ordering pilots to fly patients without medical personnel on board, or using the EMT-qualified pilot as the medic in flight aren't 30 years in the past. Not that long ago at all.

The former chief pilot is gone, of course; the one who often bragged about running two company aircraft out of fuel on revenue flights, and landing them off field on a mountainside. Current employees don't need that kind of motivation from management.

Perhaps you call it "trolling" because you haven't been there long enough to know or remember.

Prospective employees beware.

The company is a mess, take my word for it!! Just another pt 135 operator. To say it is run magnificently is in my opinion wrong. Lots of good pilots I will say that though. Your Safety record is a testament to the caliber of pilots you have been able to hire in the past. Your growth rate needs to slow down or you will sooner or later bite off more then you can chew. I hope for the best for AMRG but I fear the worst. In this hiring environment I would stay away.
