Scott City, Kan. – After more than a year of planning and construction, the Spencer Flight & Education Center (SFEC) will soon be opening its doors to the public. Set for September 14th, the SFEC’s grand opening ceremony will highlight the center’s features and mark the official start of operation of the first flight training facility of its kind in the region. An open house will be held on September 15th.
The SFEC is open to pilots and non-pilots alike and features a FAA-certified Redbird FMX full-motion flight simulator. It will also offer various educational programs for youth and non-pilots as well as reservable space for group meetings or business functions.
The grand opening will commence at 3 p.m. at the SFEC, which is located at the Scott City Municipal Airport at 300 S. Mesquite Rd. in Scott City. It will be open to the public and light refreshments will be served. An open house will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. the following day and will feature free plane rides for kids ages 8-17, simulator demonstrations and a giveaway of simulator flight hours. The activities will be held in conjunction with the Showdown on the Plains BBQ Challenge & Air Show (www.showdownbbq.com), of which the SFEC is title sponsor.
