Flying W Airport & Resort was built in the 1960s by Bill Whitesell; hence the "W" in its name. Mr. Whitesell initially envisioned a place to provide air transportation services to those involved in building the Alaska Pipe Line. He also wanted to provide a place where both travelers and local families could dine al fresco in a restaurant that also doubles as a bar and cafe, stay in the quaint Flying W Motel, and swim in the famous airplane-shaped swimming pool.
The Flying W Airport & Resort is a very special place! It's unique placement on a small airport makes for an exciting time no matter when you visit. With a motel, pool, golf course, and banquet facilities, it is the perfect for you to plan your next gathering!
