I fly to Vista Field several times a year. My friends and I were there last Saturday. We walked to the Texas restaurant and ate lunch. We enjoy aviation, and Vista Field is an enjoyable stop. It offers restaurants, the mall, the Toyota Center and many other places all within walking distance. Pasco and Richland do not offer those. You will need a car to travel in those cities, where you can walk to everything in Kennewick.
We would like to see Vista remain a viable airport with continued development. Aviation is just as important to quality of life in a community as pools, golf course, parks, houses, hospitals, businesses, malls, and walking trails. Remember, once an airport is closed, it is forever gone.
