James Ralph Hughes formed the company in 1978 with his son James Ralph Hughes Jr. James Hughes was a pilot with Pan Am for over 30 years and when forced to retire the airline he began his own operation to stay in the air.

James Hughes Jr was a pilot with Eastern Airlines for over 25 years and then in 1990 he became the President of Hughes Flying Service. Exceptional service and first class operations created demand and led to expansion.
