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.

Cessna 195 Fly-In

The California Legislators have adopted new language that provides greater opportunities for pilots in for backcountry flying.

The Recrational Use Salute that was already passed into law has been amended to include aviation activities.

This new amendment will provide landowners added protection from liability when a pilot lands on their property.

This is a very big win for general aviation and recreational flying.
The lack of basic information could mean the difference between a safe flight or an accident waiting to happen.

As publishers, we wondered why there wasn't more useful information being published about backcountry airstrips. The challenge is to find important and accurate information on a rural airport or airstrip.

We wanted to bring some common sense steps that a pilot can take to increase safety and obtain access to information on backcountry airstrips before starting out.

Should flying a Drone for hire require a license?
A new challenge now faces the Federal Aviation Administration.
Do they need to mandate that a drone pilot who charges for his or her services hold a commercial pilot's license?
 
The Federal Aviation Regulations now states that only a pilot with a commercial or high rating can charge for services. Should a pilot flying a drone for hire be required to hold a commercial pilots' license too?
