About Scott Thomson
Scott Thomson is a 2300-hour ATPL who resides in North Vancouver, BC, Canada. He obtained his student pilot permit at the age of 15 with dreams of a career in military and commercial aviation. Ocular astigmatism disqualified him from military aviation and took him down a different career path. Years later he returned to flying and obtained his private pilot license in 2007 and purchased his first airplane, a Cessna 172N. Following retirement from a 32-year career in the energy utility industry, Scott qualified for his commercial license in 2018 and obtained his ATPL in 2019. He is currently furloughed from a regional carrier due to Covid-19, where he was flying a Saab 340 and has filled the gap since March 2020 with ferry flying and part-time charter and corporate work on a Piper Chieftain and Citation CJ2+ respectively. He continues to own and fly his Cessna T210 regularly and is currently teaching his wife to take over and land in the event of an emergency.
