Kameraon Kimball, Assistant Chief Pilot

Kameron Kimball Chief Flight Instructor

Kameron’s desire to fly started with his first helicopter ride while fighting wildfires with the Forest Service. He did his training in eastern Idaho and afterward started flying as a CFII in Idaho. With a desire to grow his flying ability, he looked toward Alaska and started teaching at Alyeska Helicopters. Since then, he also helped start a small helicopter tour operation called Yellowstone Helicopters in Montana. He has returned to continue to help teach here in one of the most beautiful places on earth. When he is not flying he enjoys doing just about anything outdoors.

He served as Chief Flight Instructor at Alyeska Helicopters for over fifteen years, while also leading a large team as Chief Pilot and Operations Manager of Alpine Air Alaska and VS Helicopters.

Jason Axt Flight Instructor

Jason’s passion for helicopters started while working construction as part of a sling load operation on the air traffic control tower at San Francisco International. After becoming a CFI and working in Utah and Oregon, he’s found his way to Alaska for the inspiring landscapes and fantastic skiing.

When not at work, he can be found around the Chugach Mountains or back home, hiking and skiing around Mt Hood with his girlfriend and dog.
