Mission Statement

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Recreational Aviation Foundation preserves, maintains, and creates airstrips for recreational access.


The RAF implements its mission through these Guiding Principles:
  • We believe that aviation is a valid form of accessing recreational resources on public and private lands.
  • We believe in collaboration with both public and private entities to arrive at solutions that provide benefit to all parties.
  • We value the relationships of all stakeholders – both public and private – and commit to fostering relationships based upon integrity and transparency.
  • We believe that creation of new recreational airstrips will encourage the general aviation community to get out and recreate as well as provide more dispersed recreational opportunities.
