Fort Kent Airfield Re-Opens September 19, 2011
The RAF has been informed by the Fish River Flying Club that Fort Kent Airport is now available for aircraft operations. The 2200 foot grass airstrip in the very northern portion of Maine is restricted use rather than public use, so a call to Mr. Tom Voisine at 207-834-5685 should be made for a safety briefing, as well as airfield information and conditions. Though on the chart the airport will be designated as restricted use, the public will be welcome to use it once they have requested and received a safety briefing. Camping will be allowed, and the Fish River is only a short walk from the airfield. The RAF is proud to have assisted the Fish River Flying Club, and we congratulate their success in providing recreational aviators with another destination.
