A Little History for Air West Flight Center, Inc.
Air West Flight Center, Inc. was established January 1990, by Larry Kuebrich, in Greeley, Colorado, in conjunction with Aimes Community College - Eastern Airlines - Pilot Entry Program. In June 1991, when Eastern Airlines diminished, Larry was able to come to Longmont and purchase Judson Flying Service. Air West started with 5 aircraft to use for pilot instruction and rental purposes. In 1995 we built a large (60x80) storage hangar to store our aircraft. In 1999 we were able to build 31 rental hangar units for pilots to store their aircraft in. In 2003 we increased our fleet to 14 aircraft. Right after that, we added 31 T-Hangar units with a combined square footage of 32,500.
In 2003 we were able to add 100LL self-service fuel pumps, making it available 24/7, this has been a great convenience to Vance Brand pilots, surrounding area pilots, as well as pilots across the country.
With such a large amount of aircraft on the field, maintenance is a must. Our in-house maintenance staff at Air West makes it possible for us to own and maintain all of our aircraft, as well as provide excellent maintenance service to our customers.
Currently Air West has four full-time Flight Instructors and five part-time Flight Instructors who give instruction, private through ATP and aircraft checkouts. Our office staff consists of 1 Office Manager, 2 part-time receptionists and 1 line-boy. In the Shop hangar we have 2 full-time IA's with over 60 years combined experience.
