Meet SAAB340 First Officer, Casey Foote 👩✈️👋
“Growing up, I wanted to be a doctor or veterinarian, now I can’t imagine not being a pilot. After high school, I studied Health Sciences at the College of William and Mary in Virginia. Soon after college, I went on a discovery flight in Denver, CO and decided I wanted to pursue a career in flying.
My fiance and I moved to the Dallas, TX area which is where I began working on my flight requirements. I started flight school February of 2021, and finished up my training January of 2022. From there, I instructed for about a year and before finding Ameriflight! It was a quick process but I have been super thankful for the support from my family and friends!
I was hired at Ameriflight in February of this year as a SAAB340 First Officer in the ESCS (Charter) Department. Working in ESCS means that every day is different. We fly on-demand cargo, so unlike many other pilots at Ameriflight, we do not have set routes each day. Typically for us, we preflight the aircraft as soon as we arrive at the airport. Then, we wait patiently to be assigned a trip. Once we know where we are going, it’s go, go, go!
I love the fact that I get to meet pilots and people from all over the country, and all over the world. We get to fly to new places all the time, but it’s always fun getting a trip back to my hometown, Louisville, KY. One of my favorite memories so far was flying with an all-female crew; it’s a memory I won’t forget!
When I’m not working, I spend as much time with family, friends, and cats that I can. I also enjoy being outdoors and staying active.”
