Northwest Texas Regional Wing
Scott was raised on a cotton farm in rural West Texas. His closest neighbor was an Ag pilot with a landing strip down the dirt road. He spent hours watching the lumbering Ag Cat and always knew he wanted to fly someday.
Scott attended Texas Tech University, earned a BBA in Finance and married his long-time sweetheart, Marzee. Instead of pursuing a career in the financial sector, he followed his dream to fly and entered the US Air Force. As a KC-135R Navigator, he traveled the world air-refueling transport aircraft, bombers and fighters. In his spare time, he earned his private pilot license.
In 1990, his father passed away suddenly leaving his mother and brother to run the family farm. Within a couple months, Scott was deployed once again. This time to Desert Shield. He was away from his wife and his family when they needed him the most.
Scott separated from the USAF in 1991 with over 4,000 flight hours under his belt and started a small coffee business in Lubbock, TX near his home town. Traveling to distant customers was costly timewise, so he purchased his first aircraft – a rebuilt 1957 Piper Tri-Pacer in pristine condition. He upgraded to a Cirrus in 2013 and joined Angel Flight in 2014. Since then, he has flown over 100 missions helping dozens of people reach the medical treatment they need.
