Ehh, I've met Paul Klaus a few times, he's alright, but a touch on the arrogant side.
Hmm, I'll keep my thoughts to myself on this one.

I'm sorry, but you really don't know Paul. He is the one of the best pilots I have ever met, and also one of the most humble.
I have to agree with Drifter by and large, although I wouldn't exactly call him humble. Very confident, usually has a smile, and always willing to chat it up, at least in the contexts that I've hung out with him in. You go away feeling like you've learned something.

In no way arrogant.

True, though when he lost the STOL contest to my buddy matt he didn't take it very well.

There are some other cool video clips on www.flyalaska.com, especially the Albatross fly by.
http://www.flyalaska.com/videoclips.html. There is a longer version on youtube showing the departure from the beach, the pre-takeoff taxiing and then the takeoff and fly by. This occurred at Nunavagaluk Lake west of Dillingham in 2006. The Albatross landed and beached at Crystal Creek Lodge, but got stuck. We spent more than an hour digging under-water tracks for the main wheels before after several aborted tries of revving up his engines to get unstuck, he was finally able to taxi away from the beach. The youtube sequence can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPOJ5yOElMs

Hi Doug,

Monguse (me) is Jason's father. Just talked with him on the phone last night. He's doing good.
