RAF explores easier recreational border crossing

For the past eight years, our RAF Vermont Liaison has been working with aviators and businesses in the U.S. and Quebec to make border crossing easier for what one could call "known good actors." 

On Saturday, Sept. 17 a meeting of these professionals was held just across Vermont’s border in Stanstead, Quebec at Weller airfield (CTQ2).

The 8th annual Negrito (0NM7) Fly-in was held in the Gila National Forest Sept. 16-18 and was a great success!  At 8,000 feet and in the heart of the Gila National Forest, Negrito is an incredibly beautiful and remote spot. The event is co-sponsored by the New Mexico Pilots Assoc., (NMPA) and the RAF, and 18 planes and 30 individuals came from NM, TX and even one visitor from CA.  

Lee Bottom Fly In, IN.

The Lee Bottom fly-in the weekend of September 16-18 became the soggy bottom fly-in. The field, (64I) is six miles south of Hanover, IN.  A few campers arrived Friday and stayed the weekend, but Saturday’s activities had to be canceled completely due to uncooperative weather. Nevertheless, we had folks from as far away as Texas, South Carolina and Michigan.
