With the nearest flight training resources at
approximately four or more hours away, there are few options in Western Kansas
for additional training or refresher courses, making it difficult for pilots to
keep their skills at the optimal level.
The Spencer Flight & Education Center, located at the
Scott City Airport in Scott City, KS,
offers a long-term, sustainable solution to the need for cost-effective and
practical educational and training resources.
Established in memory of the Spencer family, the SFEC is a 501(c)3 non-profit
organization that is led by a five-member board. As a way to honor the Spencers’
passion for both aviation as well as education, the SFEC’s mission is to
actively promote the safety and success of Western Kansas pilots and passengers
by providing a local venue for high-quality flight instruction in addition to
various educational programs and resources for individuals of all ages.
