About Scott Fernandez
Scott grew up around the airlines and airplanes, as his father was a 41-year employee of Pan Am (management positions and not a pilot, although he believes he had the desire to be a pilot). A local flight out of San Juan, Puerto Rico, in a Citabria, convinced Scott to take up flying lessons. In 1973, he earned his PPL and then went on to Embry-Riddle at Daytona Beach, Florida. This was followed by a 5-year stint with Cessna Finance Corporation. The decline in GA (1983) along with raising a family and life in general took him away from aviation until he bought his Cessna 182 in 2015. Now approaching 2,000 flight hours and retired, he and his wife intend to see the country from inside their Cessna.
