    Flight Path

    Jenna Scafuri 2018 Spring

    Your current role?

    I am a utility pilot specializing in power-line construction, maintenance, inspection, and emergency response. This involves flying in the low-level wire environment and performing external load operations.

    Your most memorable helicopter ride?

    When I ferried an R44 to Brazil from Florida. The route took us through the Caribbean and many countries. The flight was with a very experienced pilot, and I learned so much that it boosted my confidence before I started my CFI training.  

    What advice would you give to someone pursuing your career path?

    Follow standard procedures properly, always do a good and thorough preflight inspection, practice good fuel management, and know your aircraft. Always have a backup plan, know YOUR emergency procedures, train, and maintain a good attitude. Having a good attitude is the most important.

    Your current role?

    I deal with all aircraft on ground (AOG) situations regarding CHC’s worldwide fleet, and work to resolve any problems facing our engineers (or technicians). This may be working with the OEMs to develop repairs outside the scope of the Structural Repair Manual, identifying alternate sources for parts and materials, or moving large items via charter aircraft to reduce AOG penalties.

    Your most memorable helicopter ride?

    My most memorable ride was with Omniflight, when we needed to run a full track and balance with auto, and I got to fly over my own house. My youngest child was four then, and I saw her whooping and hollering as we orbited the house. 

    What advice would you give to someone pursuing your career path?

    Be known for your word and values. Your reputation for work ethic, honesty, and as a decent human being will precede you through your career and life. The longer you are in aviation, you will see that more opportunities come to those who are honest, truthful, relatable, and hardworking, because people truly want them on the team.
