Scott Helms

General Manager

An FBO industry veteran, Scott Helms brings some 20 years’ experience to Kenmore Aero Services. Mr. Helms began his career “as a kid” in Eastern Washington, fueling crop dusters and aerial firefighting aircraft (Air Tankers). His travels brought him to Seattle, WA where he worked as a Line Service Supervisor and later Line Service Sales Manager at Galvin Flying Services- then one of the oldest and most respected FBOs in the country. During his tenure at Galvin, Mr. Helms was named the Number 4 Best Line Service Tech in the Professional Pilot Magazine PRASE Survey. Later, Mr. Helms held the role of Customer Service Manager for successor FBO to Galvin- Landmark Aviation at BFI- before relocating to Houston, TX to become General Manager at Million Air. Through his customer-centric approach to management, Mr. Helms again earned praise from the readership of Professional Pilot Magazine who named his Million Air location the Number 7 FBO in the nation. Mr. Helms subsequently returned to Seattle in 2017 to head Kenmore Aero Service’s FBO leadership team. In addition to his degrees in Air Traffic Control and Airline Dispatch, Mr. Helms is also a licensed pilot.
