One of the kindest and most conscientious persons, that I have ever known was a man named Scott Chikar. His work ethics mirrored his personal life. He was a private person who took pride in all that he did, whether it was raising his children or managing aircraft repair. I’m so pleased that he found so much happiness in his final years in Ventura. This was a man that never asked for praise, he simply excelled at all he did and quitely went away. Rest In Peace Scott.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Scott when we worked together at Skybird Aviation at the Van Nuys Airport during the late 1980’s.

As both a Pilot and Aviation Manager I was always happy that Scott was taking care of our Learjet and Gulfstream aircrafts. His abilities as an Aviation Mechanic were very much appreciated.

I admired Scott for his skills and motivation but I also considered him a friend and recognized him as a valuable asset to the company.

I was sorry to hear about Scott. My wife and I would like to send our best wishes to his family.

I was so lucky to have such a wonderful brother-in-law in Scottie. He was the kindest more caring person I have ever met. He was a terrific Dad to his 3 kids, Danielle, Jen and Rob, and his stepkids and all his grandkids. He will be missed more then anyone could ever imagine. Rest in Peace
