Our Rural Airports
The importance
of our rural airports
Our rural airports in most cases are time capsule to an earlier time. Most have not change much over the years. They are not like the major airports that have commercial flights. Rural airports feel much like traveling back in time.

In the gold country, Highway 49 is the major highway along the western slope of the Sierra. The "Forty-niners" roots trace the path traveler took searching for gold. Our gold country is living history and you can explore the many building along your way.

FAA Appoints
New Safety
Offices for
UAV treats
The Federal Aviation Administration, known as the FAA wants to gets serious about stemming the threat of UAVs mixing in airspace with general aviation and airline traffic.

To help in their fight, the agency has appointed two new executives to head its UAS Integration Office.

The FAA has reported a sharp rise in encounters by individuals acting as pilot in command flying UAVs in airspace reserved for licensed pilots who fly general, commercial, and military aircraft.

RAF working
for us in
California.
Rich Lach, a California representative of the Recreational Aviation Federation made a three hour drive to attend the Inyo National Forest Planning Meeting to make the point that the RAF is a player. The agenda covered road analysis, which he knew would have nothing to do with airstrips. Rich Lach said that he figured that RAF we should have a presence at all United States Forest Service public planning meeting, He wanted to show that RAF's commitment to the process and it paid off again.
Aviation loses
a friend
Submitted by J. Mc Kenna
Today aviation lost a truly good friend. John Kounis passed away suddenly.

John, along with his best friend and brother George, owned Pilot Getaways magazine.

John was one of those that continually looked for a way to make the world of aviation better. He truly was a guy who could not only write & talk about the best places to go but went there himself.
