Phillips has served as the Director of Aviation at COS since January of 2017. Phillips is the past President of the Northwest Chapter Board of Directors for AAAE and currently serves on several national aviation committees. In 2020, Phillips was recognized as the Airport Executive of the Year by the NW Chapter of AAAE.

Colorado Springs Airport’s small size means small commutes, small lines, and small waits. It means friendliness, safety, and comfort. It also means big options on daily nonstop flights and hundreds of connections worldwide. Colorado’s small airport was named one of the Best Workplaces for 2021 by the Gazette.
