LETTER: Pilot says best alternative to landing at Kalispell airport would be Polson

Print Article

I just returned from another fabulous week on Flathead Lake, flying my small plane in and out of Kalispell City Airport all the way from Ohio.  

The many pilots like me who visit the valley annually appreciate the City Airport for many reasons. It is much easier to land and take off when you don’t have the large, fast, jet traffic to deal with, let alone the large landing, ramp, tie down, hangar, and fuel fees at the international airport.

After landing, we had a great lunch at the Mckenzie River Pizza Co. and then shopped for our week’s groceries at Rosauers. We come to Kalispell during the week to check on the plane, shop, eat and have fun. We visited Costco, Target, Home Depot, Norm’s News, and Hu Hot, just to name a few.

If Kalispell City Airport were to close, I would land in Polson, shop in Polson, eat in Polson, etc. Polson is the logical best alternative for those of us visiting the lake vs. going to Glacier Park International.

I would most certainly visit Kalispell, but much of my economic impact would go to Polson. I apologize if my plane makes a little bit of noise coming and going. —David Scott, Akron, Ohio
