Jack Schofield of Mayne Island flew, for 20 years, as a commercial seaplane pilot along the full stretch of coastal British Columbia and throughout much of North America including the Canadian Arctic. He founded and edited B.C. Aviator magazine. It was sold to OP Publishing of Vancouver (Pacific Yachting, BC Outdoors) in 2002 and turned into a national publication called Aviator.

"People who fly airplanes on this coast will always have stories to tell," he says. Coast Dog Press is the name under which Schofield provides authoring and full design services and distribution to self publishers in both paper and digital books. In 2018, Jack Schofield's Mayne Island publishing service, Coast Dog Press, was selected to edit, layout and design books for on-line publisherCanadian Aviator magazine, in existence since 1990. Titles include Bush Hawk (Undaunted Belief)by R.S.Found (978-0-9950292-3-1) andBest Seat in the House-Flying for Canada's National Air Lineby J.E. Griffith (978-1-7753533-0-0). Russ Niles is the publisher and editor of both Canadian Aviator and the Canadian Pilot and Owner's Association publication entitledCOPA Flight.
Some of the inventory of Schofield's first three titles were lost when a fire consumed Sono Nis Press's warehouse in Winlaw, B.C.
