Inaugural Migratory Bird Fly-In at Havana Regional Airport

RAF Illinois Liaison Mike Purpura recently applied the RAF mission in a very unusual way. His goal was to demonstrate the value of recreational aviation and its economic benefit to the City of Havana, IL, and allow aviators to witness an incredible wildlife event.

RAF Grant Program – Gettin’ Things Done

The RAF is pleased to report on the success of its Grant Program, established to help fund projects that advance the RAF mission. State Liaisons identify projects and apply for these grant funds. The RAF typically grants a matching amount and the project is carried out by volunteers, usually in collaboration with the airport ownership, a state’s pilot organization, or public land manager.
