Significance: The Hughes Flying Service buildings are significant for their role in the training of pilots during World War II under the Civilian Pilots Training Program. Future commercial pilots enrolled in the program to receive ground and flight training at the Capital City Airport, before being transferred elsewhere for solo and advanced flight training. This training was also provided by Francis Aviation in the adjacent buildings.
