RAF Arkansas Liaison Dave Powell reports that on November 23, local airstrip owners who have allowed their airstrips to be included in the Airfield.Guide were hosted for lunch at Thaden Field, Bentonville, AR (KVBT). 

Airstrip owners were updated on the progress of the Guide, and were offered suggestions on ways to control their own airstrips. “Most importantly, how to improve the traffic in to their airstrip,” Powell explained. 

“[The event was] very well received,” he said. The owners enjoyed lunch and will receive new windsocks, designed specifically to complement the Guide, colored either green (Permissive) or yellow (Conditional) to further grow awareness and improve safety at their airstrip.
