Caroline Lachmann-Spivak was a Sikorsky S-58T copilot for New York Helicopter, a company that offered air sightseeing tours of New York City, mostly over Central Park and the Statue of Liberty. Spivak flew out of Garden City, Long Island, New York and the 34th Street Heliport, New York City. After leaving New York Helicopters, she got her instrument rating and moved to Alaska where she worked for ERA / Alaska Helicopters.
