How many feet is a "flight" according to the iPhone 6 Health app?

I'm just trying to convert that into a useful number. For example, a typical apartment complex might have 10 foot flights of stairs, but the library on campus has 15 foot flights.

Has anyone measured this or tried to figure it out? I suppose I could use this, and the Altimeter test xcode project I found, and calculate it, but I'm lazy. :)

Fitbit's trackers count around a 10 foot increase in elevation as a flight. (Walking the hill closest to my house adds 9 flights to my total, running up the stairs here at home counts as one flight.) I'd think Apple's works in a similar way.
