Scott Reiff Career

Reiff has had 20 years of flying experience in Los Angeles, giving him a vast knowledge of both the city and its surroundings. Originally from Escondido, California, Reiff earned a degree in business and finance from San Diego State University. He established his first helicopter company in 1981, offering rides in a Bell 47 Helicopter under the Coronado Bridge, before receiving his degree.

To work as a pilot for KABC AM Radio, Scott relocated to Los Angeles in 1984. Scott agreed to work for California Federal Savings and Loan in 1987 as a corporate pilot, operating both a corporate jet and a helicopter. The “Sky Lord” was his moniker while he was the reporter and pilot for the Mark and Brian Show on KLOS-FM. Along with his work with ABC7, he continues that assignment.

Scott Reiff’s lifesaving flight

Curling may not appear to be a risky sport at first appearance, but there is still a certain amount of risk. Sadly, Scott had to learn this the hard way. Scott was receiving a curling lesson from an Israeli Olympic curler while on a relaxing weekend break in Lake Tahoe, California. However, Scott’s vacation plans were quickly derailed when he slid and severely injured his head on the ice.

Scott was diagnosed with a cerebral contusion and brain hemorrhage after having a CT scan of his skull performed in the emergency room. If Scott’s inside injuries weren’t promptly and effectively treated, they may be fatal. Due to legitimate worries about brain swelling, Scott’s doctor asked that he be flown to a higher level of care. The call was answered by the staff at South Lake Tahoe’s CALSTAR-6.

I had the worst brain, Scott said. “But I knew I was in good care based on the prompt attention from the ER doctors and the CALSTAR flight crew, leave alone the kind of curling instructors,” the patient said. Scott was ultimately released to return home. Fortunately for him, there was very minor brain damage and his loss of smell was the only long-term consequence of his head injury.
