RAF Calendar - November

Join the RAF for some fun!

The first weekend in November is a busy one!  

Erin White to assume RAF Volunteer Coordinator duties

As Sarah Chandler phases out of her position as Volunteer Coordinator for the RAF, we welcome Erin White.

Erin’s resume is extensive and impressive. She started out her writing career in 1994, working as a reporter in the Silicon Valley. Among her many accomplishments, she’s especially proud of the four years she directed marketing and communications for a non-profit organization that provides life-changing outdoor adventures for people with disabilities.

2017 RAF Trail's End

In the interest of safety, RAF 2017 Trail organizers postponed two June RAF Trail events to avoid inclement weather. If you were disappointed Trigger Gap and McIntosh Reserve were cancelled, here is your chance to enjoy those RAF Trail stops!

We are pleased to announce the “2017 RAF Trail’s End” with these final events:


Aviation included on National Forest in Montana

The RAF is pleased to report that efforts by its membership contributed to a 17% share of comments received by the Helena/Lewis and Clark National Forest during their public scoping period. These comments will steer the future travel plan on the Helena/Lewis and Clark National Forest, 2,846,606 acres of public land located in the Rocky Mountains of central Montana. 

RAF Online Auction

The virtual gavel’s gone silent after ten fun-filled days of bidding!

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our aviation industry friends, and your energetic response, the RAF FUNdraiser Auction raised money to fuel our mission to preserve, maintain and create airstrips for recreational access.

Everything from Beanies to Beavers and Props to Tailwheel training" and dozens of items in between, you were generous in your response to this FUNdraiser.

RAF Trail in Pennsylvania

Our first RAF Trail event in Pennsylvania is now history, originally scheduled for the last day of September. High up on the Allegheny Plateau about 20 miles northeast of Williamsport is Eagles Mere, PA, and the Air Museum on Merritt Field (4PN7).
