Ryan Nugent is a third-generation aviation professional and New England native. He was fortunate to have countless mentors guide him in the pursuit of a flying career and he is eager to offer that same support to others. Ryan’s path started in 1996 at Daniel Webster College; studying and flying during the day while offsetting the cost of his education working line service at night. Graduating with a degree in Aviation Flight Operations, he went on to fly a Pilatus PC-12 for PlaneSense, followed by a career flying Falcon and Gulfstream aircraft worldwide for Liberty Mutual Insurance and then on to American Airlines in the Boeing 737.

Today, Ryan serves as the Director of Aviation for a corporate flight department operating the Gulfstream GVII. Ryan had always desired to serve his country in addition to his civilian flying career which is why, in the weeks following September 11th, he enlisted in the 104th Fighter Wing of the Massachusetts Air National Guard. He was later selected for a commission in the USAF and graduated from the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Program (ENJJPT).

For the next 21 years, Ryan flew in five combat deployments to Afghanistan and the Middle East, held multiple command positions, graduated from the US Naval War College and left the Guard as a Colonel and Group Commander for the 143rd Operations Group of the Rhode Island Air National Guard. He is still serving actively in the USAF Reserves. Ryan and his wife Katie enjoy raising their three kids in New Hampshire where you can find them enjoying the lakes in the summer or alpine ski racing all winter.
