Scott Davidson Sr, Director of Safety, began his love of aviation at the age of 10 at the Naval Air Station Point Mugu Air Show.  He subsequently started his aviation career as a jet mechanic in the US Marine Corps and rose through the ranks to become a Marine Corps Combat Fighter Pilot and Air Combat Tactics Instructor, flying the F/A-18 Hornet Strike-Fighter aircraft.  While in the Marines, Scott deployed worldwide numerous times, including combat missions conducted over Iraq and Afghanistan and was twice awarded the Air Medal for airborne actions against the enemy.  Upon returning from the Persian Gulf, Scott was assigned as an Operational Test Pilot/Test Director with the US Navy, performing classified program test and evaluation on the F/A-18A-D Hornet and the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.  Additionally, Scott was formally trained as a Director of Safety and Standardization/Crash Mishap Investigator and is a graduate of the US Navy School of Aviation Safety.  Scott retired from the Marine Corps after 24 years with over 2000 mishap free flight hours in the F/A-18A-F and nearly 100 carrier landings on three different aircraft carriers.  He also has the distinction of holding the record for one of the longest single-seat F/A-18 combat missions in history, 11.5 hours airborne over Afghanistan.  Scott is currently a Lead Captain in the Global Express fleet and is further involved in bringing together professional aspects of safety and training here at Silver Air.  Scott is from the Thousand Oaks area, where he currently resides with his wife of 21 years, Fawn, and their son, Scott Jr, and daughter, Sydney.
