We Fly: The RAF at 20 Years into Moose Creek

We fly into a U.S. Forest Service strip in Idaho in a Kodiak 100 joining a work crew with the Recreational Aviation Foundation.

The airstrips that the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) has defended and nurtured over the past 20 years remain viable because an urgent message was triggered to safeguard them for the future. 

They represent some of our most precious resources in aviation, and a collection of more than 11,000 volunteers coordinated by the RAF have helped maintain them and promote them to the flying community.

Join FLYING’s editor-in-chief Julie Boatman as she flies in with a work crew in a Daher Kodiak 100 to experience the camaraderie and satisfaction that participating in such an important effort can bring.

Look for the full story in our feature in the latest issue of FLYING, Issue 944 for December 2023/January 2024. Subscribers will receive it in their mailbox or inbox soon.
