About Hughes Aviation Services

Hughes Aviation Services has been providing aviation services and products to the greater Austin metropolitan area since 1996.  Our specialty is working with busy professionals who must fit their passion for flying into a demanding schedule.  As such, our instruction is provided at your convenience to match your schedule and at the location of your choice.  Evenings and weekend lessons are our specialty.  Programs of training are tailored specifically to meet your goals, and carried out at your pace.  We are happy to use your aircraft or we can provide appropriate aircraft if needed, which are based at the Georgetown airport.  Instrument and multi-engine training make up the majority of the training we do although primary training is also offered.  Individual ground instruction, as well as formal classroom courses are offered to prepare you for required knowledge tests.  I believe you will find our rates are competitive and of good value. Professionalism is the guideline for everything we do.   If you have been considering adding an instrument or multi-engine rating, please take a minute and learn about our capabilities.

Our ground school courses include originally developed training presentations and lesson notes are based on official FAA flight training handbooks and publications.  Commercial third party products from ASA, Gleim, and Jeppesen are also used.  As a service to our students, we offer all of these materials for sale.  A sister business, National Pilot Supply offers the catalog of merchandise via mail, phone and web orders (http://www.NationalPilotSupply.com).

From logbooks to lapel pins, fuel testers to sunglasses, headsets to knee-boards, we offer a full line of pilot supplies, accessories and materials.  Competitive prices, quick delivery and complete customer satisfaction are our selling points.  If you are not happy with an item, return it for a full refund.

We also offer Discovery Flights ($49 special), sight-seeing flights, initial (primary) training, aircraft checkouts, flight reviews, instrument competency checks, FAA Wings Program training, and pilot services.
