Default RV10 Back Country trip

44mi., in the Bob Marshall, lucky you didn't run into a Grizzly. Out now, like huckleberries, fish in streams.

This is awesome! How much ground clearance do your wheel pants have?

Wheel pants are built close to Van's plans (1-1/2"?), but perhaps fractionally lower. Very little clearance on rough turf. Not optimal, but it worked out. They can take some abuse.

The sectional shows Ryan Field as Private. No designator, but Foreflight shows 2MT1, and call Recreation Aviation Foundation for permission. In your trip planning, did you use RAF? Helpful?

Default Ryan Field

Ryan is a very special place, and thanks to the generosity of Ben and Butchie Ryan, and the stewardship of the Recreational Aviation Foundation, it is open to all of us. You need to get a safety briefing beforehand. Visit the RAF website https://theraf.org/, click on Pilot Information, and Ryan Field.



There is a beautiful pilots shelter on the field, and it is within walking distance of West Glacier. There is also a courtesy car available for use by pilots.



The RAF is an all volunteer organization, and Ryan is maintained with volunteer labor (and donated dollars). We timed our visit to coincide with the annual work party. Wood was split, weeds were mowed, and picnic tables were refinished.



Perhaps the best part of Ryan are the people you will meet around the campfire. We count as close friends the wonderful folks we have shared time with there.

Anyone who enjoys exploring the backcountry with their airplane should consider supporting the RAF. Ryan and the other wonderful recreational airstrips didn't just fall from the sky. They represent the results of hard work by a dedicated group of volunteers. Join the team.
