Good news: The Payson Airport now proudly flies the American and Arizona State flags just outside the Crosswinds Restaurant.
Sadly, the airport has not been able to proudly display both the U.S. and Arizona state flags for several years. Now, due to the efforts of Ned Hines, Payson Pilots' Association president, and Rodger and Darla Annabel, owners of the Crosswinds Restaurant, the flags now fly proudly over the airport 24 hours a day, lighted by a spotlight from the restaurant.
This is just a small example of the flying community trying to make the Payson Airport a place of pride for the citizens of Payson.
