Backcountry airstrips legislation introduced in Senate

AOPA-backed legislation to protect backcountry airstrips was introduced in the U.S. Senate yesterday. The bill, sponsored by Senators Michael Crapo and Larry Craig of Idaho and Conrad Burns of Montana, is similar to legislation already introduced in the House by Utah Representative Jim Hansen, a pilot and AOPA member.

The Backcountry Landing Strip Access Act would prevent federal land managers from closing airstrips without first consulting with state aviation agencies and airstrip users.
