Why is the Greeley-Weld County Airport an amazing General Aviation airport for Flight Training?

  • There’s good complexity available at the airport: Multiple runways in use, multiple taxiways, complex environment to navigate, crossing runways, and utilizing outbound vs inbound taxiways.

  • It has a runway with a right traffic pattern allowing the ability to practice standard and non-standard traffic patterns.

  • Two full-sized runways that allows great flight training for different types of landings Airport is in close proximity to practice areas, saving time and money for commuting to the practice areas.
