I started my career in aviation at the age of 12 with a sightseeing flight over the Grand Canyon. Since that moment I always knew I would be an aviator. Fast forward to my early 20s and I was enrolled at Spartan School of Aeronautics pursuing my dream of becoming a professional pilot. I graduated in 2004 and have been instructing and flying ever since. I have over 4700 hours total time with over 3300 hours as an instructor.

 

I have been training instructor candidates since 2008 and have signed off dozens of applicants, many of which are now professional pilots themselves working all over the world. Over the years I have worked as an Assistant Chief Instructor and Check Instructor at a large Part 141 flight school, a Flight Standards Administrator and Safety Officer of a Part 135 charter operation, and most recently as a Part 91 corporate pilot. I am fully qualified to instruct at every level and I continue to share my experience as a corporate pilot with my clients, giving them the tools they need to not only be a successful instructor, but to also be a successful professional pilot."

 

Besides aviation my hobbies include fishing, hiking, camping, surfing, sports, and riding dirtbikes. I have a beautiful wife that I have been married to over 11 years and two wonderful little girls, ages 2 and 4. When I'm not flying or fishing I'm most definitely spending my time with them.

Hello, my name is Scott M Hughes.  I am one of co-founders and co-owners, with my partner Alex Silva, of Provectus Aviation Unlimited, a school specializing in advanced airplane training. 

 

I have been a pilot and instructor for over 25 years.  I have had the opportunity to be the Chief Pilot and Instructor for a couple of Part 141 flight schools over my career.  One being the biggest in Southern California at the time.  Those experiences provided me with unique insight regarding training, particularly with the training and mentoring of instructors.  I am also fortunate enough to be able to fly turbine aircraft as an independent contractor.

 

Personally, I grew up and attended college, for aviation, in New England.  I moved to San Diego many moons ago and haven’t looked back.  It’s too cold.  I met my wife of 20 years here and we have been blessed with two beautiful children, a boy and a girl.  Our house always has plenty of pets.  When I have ‘free’ time I enjoy it with my family and pets, hiking, fishing, riding motorcycles, and reading.

Commercial Pilot: Airplane Single and Multiengine Land; CE-650

Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic

I first started flying in 2012 when I started school for my Bachelors in Aviation at San Diego Christian College. I spent my 4 years there getting my licenses and started instructing after I graduated at a 141 school at Gillespie Field in El Cajon. I worked there for about 3 years while getting my CFII, Multi Add-on, and MEI. I was primarily doing 141 stage checks when I began to work for Provectus.

I’m originally from the Fresno area so I’m definitely enjoying San Diego!

My long term goal is to do some humanitarian flying and travel. Currently I’m going to school at Miramar for my A&P license.

Qualifications

Certified Flight Instructor: Airplane Single; Instrument Airplane; Tailwheel Instructor

Commercial Pilot: Airplane Single Land

Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic

I started my aviation career back in 2009, when I began my endeavor towards becoming a professional pilot. A few years later, I started working towards my bachelor’s degree in aviation science. While attending College in the day and working on my pilot certificates I was taking night classes at Miramar College to acquire my A&P certificate. During this time period I was able to enjoy flying the San Diego airspace as a banner tow pilot and flying tailwheel aircraft. Over the past few years I have worked on and off as an A&P mechanic, but my primary focus has been flying and teaching. 

 

In my free time I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking with my wife and our puppy. 

My long term goal is to do some humanitarian flying and travel.

I became enamored with aviation in the summer of 1986.  It began as a collection of events that started with a trip to the east coast.  On that trip, we went to the Smithsonian Aviation Museum.  We also went to see the summer’s blockbuster movie Top Gun.  On the drive long drive home, I ran out of books to read, so I picked up the book my father was reading.  It was the autobiography of Chuck Yeager.  This all planted the seed.

 

I have now been flying for over 25 years.

I started my flight training when I was 16 years old, and became a licensed pilot in 1993.  Over the years I added an instrument rating and a commercial certificate.  In 2007, I moved to San Diego complete my flight instructor certificate, and become an instructor.  During my instructing career, I have worked my way up and been a stage check instructor as well as the Chief Instructor for a Part 141 school.

On the personal side of my life, I am married and I have 2 daughters.  This occupies most of the time that I am home.  When I have the time, I enjoy tinkering on cars and motorcycles.

Aviation has always been a part of my life. I enjoyed watching my grandfather build a plane in his garage and listening to my Uncle’s stories who is a captain for a major airline. After graduating from Point Loma Nazarene University (where I played baseball and majored in Finance) I joined the US Navy. The final months of my naval career were served at the San Diego FAA Flight Standards District Office. While at the FAA I became immersed in aviation and was exposed to nearly every aspect of the field one could imagine. My time with the FAA led me to pursue a career in aviation. 

 

I've been flying for a few years now and enjoyed being a full time instructor and Safety Officer at a large Part 141 flight school in San Diego. I am fortunate to be surrounded by strong mentors who have engrained into me a mindset of safety always, while having fun! My long term goal is to continue instructing in San Diego so that others can pursue their dreams in aviation.

 

When I’m not flying I stay active by going to the gym, hiking or running the beach. Aviation will always be my number one passion, and riding motorcycles is a very close second!
