Airway-Fairway Golf Tournament

For 23 years, the Mountain Air Pilots Association (MAPA) has hosted a charity golf tournament called the Airway Fairway. It’s a fun scramble devoted to celebrating aviation at Mountain Air. Always sold-out, this event includes residents, local pilots, area  air traffic controllers, and FAA employees. The profits that Airway Fairway raises funds local charities through the Mountain Air Community Fund (MACF), our non-profit 501(c)3 that helps people in Yancey County.
