Ravn Alaska has seen some issues recently:

Seems the FAA has taken notice:

Airlines under HoTH Inc. include Frontier Flying Service, Hageland Aviation Services, Inc. and Era Aviation, which do business as Ravn Alaska and Corvus Airlines. Six crashes have occurred under those operators since 2012.

Im curious as to how much experience all the pilots had in the recent incidents? If I remember right I was told or read some place that they have had a lot of veteran pilots retire in the past few years and they have a lot of youth and inexperience piloting now
