Featured Fun Place to FLY! Woolsey Memorial Airport, Northport, MI
"Awesome little airport in Northport, MI, one hour north driving time from Traverse City. It has two well maintained Turf runways, one of them 9-27 over 3500' long, and the other 16-34 over 2500' long.. The manager Tom Weatherby of the airport is very helpful, will pick you up and take you into town. It's a beautiful flight over the two finger peninsulas jutting out of Michigan in that area. Northport is a great place to vacation. Quiet town, close to big Traverse City and to fishing town, Leland, MI. You can check out this landing video at the airport: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZ2y_nDduUo." - Submitted by Mubashir Sabir.
