Bonners Ferry is located in the northern-most panhandle area of Idaho, on a prehistoric lake bed known today as the Kootenai Valley. In 1864, gold discoveries in Canada inspired Walla Walla businessman Edwin L. Bonner to establish a ferry where the Wildhorse Trail crossed the broad Kootenai River. The ferry served as a major crossing point until it was finally replaced with a bridge in 1932. The location retained the name of the original founder and later became officially the town of Bonners Ferry. 65S, Bonners Ferry airport is situated three miles northeast of the city on a bench of land some 400 ft. above the valley floor. With its 4000' runway, 65S can accommodate general aviation aircraft of all sizes including large corporate jets. Bonners Ferry is the hometown of developer Jim Robinson, making this likely the most thoroughly documented Orbx airport ever released!
