Chopper Pilot Honored to Know He Inspired Army Vets Career

Martha Adame says KABC helicopter pilot Scott Reiff was one of the inspirations for her 13 year career flying helicopters for the Army.

She told the Los Angeles ABC-owned station she was working a the Van Nuys Airport when she got a chance to fly with Reiff in AIR7 HD.

“It put the thought of it in my head that, ‘Hey, I can do something like that.’ Somebody is doing it, and I’m here flying with them doing it,” Adame said.


“Oh it’s awesome,” said Reiff. “It’s an honor, really. It’s amazing because I think I would have liked to have done what she did, but even being a small part of that it’s great.”
