Developers of The Fly Inn resort were on hand at a pancake breakfast that
drew a large number of visitors at the Seeley Lake airport last Sunday.
A model of the planned 1,200-square-foot chalets, built by Winterhawk Woodworks,
Inc. (Jim Kyle, owner), was open for viewing and inspection.
The eight-acre subdivision, adjacent to the airport, will accomodate five
chalet cabin sites and a larger one-acre parcel. Developers of the project
are Richard Brighton, a Park City, Utah, architect and private pilot, and
Bob Thorne, a Delta Airlines pilot stationed in Atlanta, Georgia.
Several planes flew in for Sunday's "Friends of the Seeley Lake Airport"
fund-raising pancake breakfast, including one plane from California.
Over 100 people turned out and about $1,000 was raised for maintenance and
repairs of the airport. The Missoula County Airport Authority is responsible
for the Seeley Lake airport, but the Friends of the Seeley Lake Airport,
a group made up of Seeley Lake Flying Club members and others interested
in the future of the grass strip airport, donate time and money for upgrading
