Idaho Airstrip Network

The Idaho Airstrip Network is a group of airstrip owners including the U.S. Forest Service, BLM, Idaho Fish and Game, the Idaho Division of Aeronautics and a few private owners, along with several nonprofit aviation groups including the Idaho Aviation Association, Idaho Aviation Foundation and the Recreational Aviation Foundation, and other entities that have an interest in aviation such as Idaho Outfitters and Guides and the Idaho Department of Commerce.

The group is held together by a Memorandum of Understanding and is managed by a steering committee and a part-time coordinator.
