W E Ranch Airstrip

FAA Code: OID Latitude: 42.4481862
Elevation: 5075 Longitude: -111.7775431

Webster built the strip to access his ranch quickly.  It measures 1350 x 45 feet of smooth dirt with an 8' slope.  Winds permitting landings are made to the north and take offs to the south.  There is a windsock on the field.  Also on the field is a small shed.  If you have an emergency and need fuel, there is 20 gal of av gas in the shed.  If you have a mechanical issue, use the 4-wheeler or walk, and about 1/4 mile down the road is a warm barnhouse/ cabin with food, shower, and beds.  Next spring 2019, Webster plans to hold a pancake breakfast at his strip so he can meet IAA members and other pilots.  Thanks Mr Webster for providing this haven in case of need.  District 5 Greg Cobia 208-785-5006 cobiaphotos@hotmail.com

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.
