Airport can be a boon, officials say
By aaron Burgin, The Porterville Recorder
A 727 commercial aircraft sails overhead, deafening the horizon as it makes its final approach to Porterville Municipal Airport. A dozen of the world’s best golfers step off the flight, and are shuttled off to the Porterville Hilton Hotel (insert Ramada, Hyatt, or any other five-star worthy name here), where they’ll stay for the Porterville Classic, a Professional Golfer’s Association Tour Qualifying School (Q-School for golf enthusiasts) event.
