Very nice but I prefer the R-1340 variety

Chalet, the original version with the R-1340 has some pleasing classic lines and was undoubtedly more fuel efficient. But the operators found the turbines to offer more power and less frequent maintenance. It's great that they can keep flying these older aircraft and Kenmore keeps theirs in excellent shape.

I can only see one pilot, in the right hand seat, and he appears to operating the aircraft. Is that standard for that aircraft, given that we fixed wing pilots normally fly from the left hand seat!

The left seat guy (pilot) is likely moving thru the cabin or at the cabin door on the port side... preparing to exit and move down onto the top of the port side float in preparation to secure a line on the pier for docking.

No doubt, this aircraft operating for Kenmore Air normally carries a flight crew of two - a pilot and co-pilot - when flying.

Good question Beegeo and thanks for the response cliff. Kenmore does operate many single-pilot flights, as in this case. The pilot usually does fly from the left seat; this might have been an exception. They're pretty skilled with jumping out after shutting the engine down, and then securing the plane to the pier without any assistance. Seems challenging but they do it well. The turboprop engine helps with taxiing because the prop can be reversed to slow the taxi speed to a crawl.
