Have a Heart

This year do something a little different and special for your “sweetheart” on Valentine’s Day!  Skip the chocolates and go with their passion……  If your sweetie’s passion is recreational flying then make a contribution for the Two Hearted Airstrip project.  The Recreational Aviation Foundation is preserving, creating, and maintaining recreational airstrips for today and the future.

The Two Hearted Airstrip in Michigan is our next project.  The RAF has begun the work but needs your help.  We are half way there.  The leases of the land both public and private have been secured.  A bid has been accepted for a local contractor and materials are waiting to be delivered.  We need to raise more money in order to finish this project and open the airstrip to the public.

Ernest Hemingway was inspired by this area to write his two part short story, “The Big Two Hearted River”, published in 1925.  Hemingway expresses the underlying healing power of nature.  This falls in line with what the RAF is all about:  combining the love of aviation and recreational airstrips.

Have a heart and donate to this project today!  Click here to support the Two Hearted Airstrip Project.
