Who ARe We?


The airplane is just a bunch of sticks and wires and cloth, a tool for learning about the sky and about what kind of person I am, when I fly. An airplane stands for freedom, for joy, for the power to understand, and to demonstrate that understanding. Those things aren't destructable"


— Richard Bach, Nothing by Chance, 1963.

Provectus Aviation Unlimited, LLC opened it's doors in January 2019.  It's founders Scott Hughes and Alex Silva decided it was time to offer an aviation business that not only trains it's pilots in a wide-range of levels but to also display their experience in managing airplanes and partnering up pilots and airplane owners as well as sharing their knowledge of running successful flight schools with those who need a little coaching. Scott and Alex worked together years ago as Chief and Assistant Chief of a large Part 141 flight school.  Over the years they went their separate ways to pursue other opportunities in aviation.  Both ended-up in corporate aviation and found themselves with plenty of free time to do other things in between trips .  They decided to team-up once again and go back to their instructor roots and share their experiences with others in the aviation community.  

Originally Provectus Aviation was formed to provide advanced training, specializing in training Instructor candidates.  After hiring its first employee, Megan Rider, Provectus began to "take- off".  Megan was an integral in helping Provectus get its start by providing the bulk of the CFI training while Scott and Alex worked on other aspects of the business.

Provectus has since added valuable members to their team and now offers a variety of services as described in the "Our Team" and "Programs and Services" page.  Go check it out!
