Registration of Airstrips

In an effort to enhance the safety of pilots operating in the backcountry, the UBCP is working together with State Aeronautics in registering all of our known operating airstrips with the FAA. This project will take some time, and as we work through the logistics of this, we'll likely need some help making this a reality. Those interested please contact the UBCP.

As of today, we've completed the requisite paperwork for the FAA to start adding a few airstrips to their database. And, as of today, we learned that the forms really don't matter. Most of the information they require is to be submitted via a website that we're currently in the process of learning how to navigate. Stay tuned!

The UBCP has established a working agreement with State Aeronautics on the management of the airstrips across the state to satiate the requirements from the FAA. Currently, we are working in verifying airstrip data and assembling the data into the requisite forms.
