Pilot Welcome Center opens at FH Airport
Pilots and passengers have new, protected, cozy place to prepare for a flight, relax after landing or to check out the various offerings of local businesses at Friday Harbor Airport.
The Port of Friday Harbor officially opened its newly constructed Pilot Welcome Center Dec. 11 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The Welcome Center is located at the northeast corner of the airport, on Mullis Street, near the visiting pilot tie-down area and next to the driveway leading to Bakery San Juan.
With more than 58,000 take-offs and landings a year, Friday Harbor Airport is one of the busiest in Washington state. It's home to three commercial airlines, a host of chartered aircraft, a fixed-wing ambulance service, dozens of local pilots, a museum dedicated to local aviation, and much more.
Visitors and islanders will also soon be able to use a sidewalk on the north side of the street for a stroll into town, which is currently under construction by the Town of Friday Harbor.
