new grass fields were added in 2017. It totals 213 new
other then paved surface airstrips. Season 2018 looks very promising.
The Grass Season 2016 is over. It was a record year for my RV9A and I. Not sure if we could ever reap such a harvest again. We visited 72 new non paved runways and accumulated 199 different strips total since 2011.
Highlights of the year. The most picturesque goes to WV08 Scott's Island.
The shortest was Randolf island (private and uncharted) in Maine. 500 feet of a mowed patch. Piper Cubs Heaven.
The farthest from home base was Tanana, AK nearly 3,000 NM out.
The longest, most populated and meticulously groomed grass was NC26 an airpark in North Carolina. Flash Mob Squadron is building a base there...
Two prominent airstrips in British Columbia. Telegraph Creek
and Marilla, a German farm.
Looking forward to Season 2018 which starts late January.
