ABOUT SUMMIT FLIGHT TRAINING
Summit Flight Training was founded by Corrie Stevens and Andrew Chung, who wanted to create a community in which any lifelong learner in aviation would feel welcome. From their backgrounds in education, Corrie and Andrew understand that a positive, fun, and safe environment promotes understanding and achievement. Summit Flight Training combines a student-centered approach with high-quality instruction in order to maximize learning.
In addition to flight instruction, Summit Flight Training also strives to facilitate connections among learners and professionals. We believe that both students and flight instructors thrive when they have access to diverse facets of the aviation community.
Summit Flight Training is proud to be co-owned by a female pilot. Because less than 10% of pilots are women, Summit Flight Training is passionate about creating a space where women are encouraged and uplifted throughout their flight training and beyond.
The next step in your aviation journey is just a phone call away.
Why is the Greeley-Weld County Airport an amazing General Aviation airport for Flight Training?
We are an uncontrolled airport meaning there’s no control tower on the airfield
Because we are an uncontrolled airport, we don't have to wait for taxi, takeoff or landing clearances or have to wait for any type of clearances from Air Traffic Control. This allows our students to learn to fly without external pressures coming from a control tower.
There is good complexity available at the airport: Multiple runways with instrument approaches, multiple taxiways, high traffic environment to navigate, crossing runways, and utilizing outbound vs inbound taxiways.
We have a runway with a right traffic pattern allowing the ability to practice standard and non-standard traffic patterns.
Our airport is in close proximity to practice areas, saving time and money when flying to and from the practice areas.
We are in close proximity to a VOR for navigation practice, towered airports for towered operations, which allows for so many different flight training opportunities when learning tower ops.
