CHAD COX - Manager - Rotorcraft CFII


Chad is an Arkansas native. He first started flying helicopters before adding fixed wing. He’s laid back and works hard to keep the instructors flying.

His goal with the flight school is to make every lesson safe, fun, and challenging.

With the addition of the Cabri G2 helicopter you will see him back in the saddle doing what he loves, sharing the love of flying…

Cockpit with name.JPG

Kyle is originally from Madisonville, TX and comes to us via training in Maryland, Rhode Island, California and Florida. He also has a B.S. from the US Naval Academy, M.S. from the Naval Postgraduate School, and a M.A. from the Naval War College. We're not just looks here at Summit Aviation!

Kyle's two most memorable flight experiences include a flight with the Blue Angels and an awesome low level flight in an EA18G over the Cascade Mountains...500' AGL at 400 KIAS! Kids DO NOT try this at home! Look for him at our Springdale location where he keeps things running like a well oiled machine.


Lucas Nunley - CFI, CFII, and Tailwheel Instructor


Lucas, originally from Nashville, comes to us via Henderson State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Aviation. He holds numerous ratings and is our back-country specialist and main tailwheel instructor. Don't let his laid back demeanor fool you, he's a consummate professional with a long waiting list of students eager to fly with him. If learning tailwheel flying is your goal you better get your name on Lucas' list now!

Flying the back-country is what Lucas loves the most and it shows with his love of teaching the basics of stick and rudder flying. His most memorable recent flight was flying a carbon cub to Aspen. Blue sky for miles, sea of green below, and snow capped peaks-can't beat that!
