Community Involvement

Take Flight with U.S. Flight Academy



As U.S. Flight Academy has established ties with the Big Spring area it is contributing to and giving back to the community by participating in the Adopt an Airport Program. USFA assists in keeping the airport free of debris and clutter as a way of saying “thank you” to the community.

U.S. Flight Academy is also involved with the local Vietnam Memorial Committee and is conducting a yearly fly-over on Memorial Day to commemorate our fallen soldiers who sacrificed for the freedom we endure.

As provided by the program, Boe, his staff, and students will be responsible for cleanup of the airport grounds.

Big Spring has a diverse and varied economy. Early settlers began ranching operations and soon began to farm the land. Oil and gas production became a major economic force in the early 1900s and continues today. In addition, the economy has grown to include refining, manufacturing, wind energy production, transportation, governmental services, and a broad range of small business, restaurants, and craft shops.
