Default Ryan air services AK

Anyone know the status of Ryan Air hiring? Pay? Schedule? 15on/15off I assume. Nothing recent seems to have been posted about them.

Thanks!

I have 0 experience since I am still in Flight School. But a friend of mine used to fly for Hageland Aviation Services which is apart of the Ravn Alaska brand. From what I understand, Ravn Alaska itself is Part 121, whereas Hageland and Frontier Flying are Part 135. I just talked to him about this yesterday, and he told me there is a current investigation on Hageland and Frontier due to recent crashes. He said their insurance company is probably going to pull their certifications. That's really all I know, but I figured I'd share.

I currently fly up here and have friends at Ryan. They won't specifically say what they make but the average is $200-$250/day for most employers so if I had a guess it would be close to that. Yes it's 15on/15off and you have CASS so must jumpseat up here(which is a pain believe me). If you are low time they make you a radioman right seat in a casa until you can fly the 207 PIC. They are one of the better operators but the down side is you don't fly as much as the rest. Hageland and Yute fly a ton and pay more overall than the rest. So if you want money and hours they are the 2 best.
Are you a fresh commercial or experienced?
As far as hageland goes they've been crashing planes and killing people for decades so any recent events won't change it and they just passed a huge inspection this summer so they definitely aren't going anywhere. They are a huge operation and western Alaska would fall apart without them. The Feds up here are the biggest morons in the industry and half of them aren't pilots or a&ps so they literally have no clue what's going on.

Insurance companies can't pull FAA certs. Western AK wouldn't fall apart with Hagey gone, someone else would step up, but I don't see them going anywhere. If the two recent accidents, one was a freak midair (which are extremely rare) and the other no one knows what happened.
