Lifting Off and Giving Back This Weekend

FlyteCo Brewing is celebrating its first anniversary at the former Stapleton International Airport Control Tower this weekend, August 19-21. The family-friendly weekend celebration has a free drone show, a Family Day, and a fundraiser to support women who are pursuing their pilot’s licenses.

The signature event on Saturday, August 19, is a fundraiser for the I Hart Flying Foundation, which provides flight training scholarships to aspiring women pilots. Tickets for the fundraiser are $100 and include dinner, drinks, door prizes, and on-site games like golf simulators, bowling, mini golf, arcade games, and even axe throwing.

“Since FlyteCo’s inception in 2019, we’ve donated 10 percent of profits towards ‘the future of aviation’ with a focus on providing pilot scholarships to those who have been historically disadvantaged in the industry,” says Eric Serani, the FlyteCo Tower Founder. “We’re huge believers in and supporters of I Hart Flying Foundation, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate the first anniversary than by raising funds to get more women into the skies.”

The weekend kicks off Friday night with the free drone show from 9:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. On Sunday, the festivities will end with a Family Day with face painting, balloon animals, and a B-25 simulator, and Wings Over the Rockies will even bring their Drone Soccer pitch.
