Management Plans

Recommended procedures

Classification: DEVELOPED

Airstrips have basic navigational aids and some additional services such as restrooms or camping facilities. May have road access to nearby attractions. Typically located in areas of high use, often in remote settings, but may be accessed by improved roads.
Maintenance: Clear hazardous vegetation from approaches, remove obstacles, blade, mow, water, treat invasive and noxious weeds, and make spot improvements regularly to maintain improved airstrip surface.

This information has been compiled from a number of sources. The status of airstrip facilities, conditions, available services, ownership, and managers are constantly changing. The Idaho Aviation Association assumes no responsibility for incomplete or inaccurate information contained herein.
