RAF New York State Liaison Russ Holland, typically found in the cockpit of his tandem Rans S-7S, has embarked on a different kind of cross-country, this time in a vehicle, generously donated by Mike Lucero, Bozeman, MT of Hertz Rental Car.
Russ left his home of Cold Brook, NY to attend a “Why Public Land Matters” meeting on March 28 in Boise, ID. The RAF was able to fly Russ to Boise with Sky Bonus miles. (If you haven’t yet signed up with Delta click here. It doesn’t affect your travel miles and REALLY helps the RAF…especially at times like this) He then picks up the Simulator that Red Bird had generously donated to the RAF. It was a big attraction at conferences, and now it will be put to good use training student pilots, as part of the RAF education component.
Russ will meet with RAF State Liaisons, key volunteers and political friends along the way, as part of his adventure, “Where in the World is Russ Holland?”
