October 1, 2017
This year’s Flying Cloud Air Tour took participants to Park Falls Airport, right next to the Country Club where the event’s activity was a friendly golf competition. Congratulations are in order for the golf winners: Scott Johnson (long drive), James Hennen (best wedge), and Aaron Becker (crosswind influenced ball placement).
Folks then flew on to Phillips, Wisconsin Airport for lunch at the Harbor View Restaurant, next to the airport and seaplane base.
Flying Cloud Air Tour organizer, Ben McQuillan sent out the following note to participants of the September 2017 event.
“Thanks to all of our outstanding pilots. Expertly safe, expertly skilled flying.

Great job!”
