About the Recreational Aviation Foundation

The RAF was founded by a group of Montana pilots who realized the threat of recreational airstrip closure was of national concern. They also recognized there was a need for a unified effort by pilots everywhere to protect public aviation access to places with recreational opportunities. The RAF, a 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to preserving and improving existing airstrips, and creating new public-use recreational airstrips throughout the United States. For more info see:
