Airport flight-ramp expansion sure to inspire future aviators

Clay Lacy has piloted aircraft for more than 55,000 hours. Now, his achievements as a pilot in commercial, business, military, racing and test flights will inspire a new generation of aerospace leaders, according to a news release.

The Clay Lacy Field of Dreams Flight Ramp at Wings Over the Rockies' Exploration of Flight Campus at Centennial Airport will be a launch pad for future aviators who visit the Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery at Exploration of Flight. A financial gift from Lacy will help expand the 77,000-square-foot flight ramp to accommodate additional flight activities.

“The Field of Dreams Flight Ramp is a perfect place to recognize Clay Lacy's renowned career throughout the national aviation community,” said Maj. Gen. John Barry, who is retired from the Air Force and Wings' president and CEO, in the release. “His generosity will help create a focal point for America's future aviators, right here in Colorado.”

The Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery provides year-round activities that interact with the Flight Ramp. Exhibits and programs provide visitors a “living hangar” with all dimensions of the flight experience. Wings volunteers have already provided hundreds of flights for area young people, teachers and those interested in aviation.
