Pilot Paradise in Oregon - Sunriver Airport
The Sunriver aiport is featured in the latest issue of Pilot Getaways. The article, written by Erin Willison, points out the many benefits of flying into Sunriver. The airport underwent an extensive $700k re-paving project this past spring and is considered one of the most utilized private airports (public-use) west of the Mississippi.
Erin writes: "Sunriver has everything you need for year-round fun and relaxation: fabulous golf, tennis, swimming, biking, and hiking. And now that winter is here, just jump on the convenient, 20-minute free shuttle ride to Mount Bachelor, a ski area with 71 runs from green to double-black-diamond. There’s also a ten-acre tubing park, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and sledding. Back at Sunriver, soothe your ski-tired muscles at the spa, and then check out the telescopes at the observatory to see planets, galaxies, or maybe spot a satellite cruising across the night sky. Several onsite restaurants will please all, from the fussiest kids to the fussiest gourmets, and you can retire to a rented condo with kitchen, or a room or suite in the lodge, with wood-paneled vaulted ceiling, fireplace, and balcony with view. Winter or summer, Sunriver is a perfect pilot getaway for many."
