Fun Flying – RAF 2014 River Run to the Atlantic

Posted by on Aug 12, 2014 in News Feed |

Join fellow pilots for a weekend of fun as we fly from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Georgia Coast visiting five fantastic airstrips. We’ll kick off the adventure with an overnight camp in the North Carolina Mountains at Tusquittee Landing. The following morning the group will head southeast on a 317 NM adventure, following the rivers and lakes that make up the Georgia and South Carolina border, all the way to the Atlantic. We’ll make several airstrip stops along the route and end the day on the Georgia coast at Berg Park Aerodrome where everyone is encouraged to camp overnight. Saturday evening dinner will be provided by RAF volunteers for $10/plate. If you plan to dine with us, registration is required so that we’ll be able to plan accordingly. The proposed route can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/2014RAFRRA. The required airstrip owner liability release waivers will be emailed to registrants. Questions?
