NMPA Backcountry Committee
Dedicated to preservation of backcountry airstrips and recreational flying in New Mexico
MISSION: To foster and promote recreational and back country flying in and around New Mexcio, working directly with airstrip owners, governmental agencies, related organziations and any individuals as needed.
VISION: An inventory of public and private airstrips, recognized nationwide as a destination on par with that of other states.
SUCCESSES: Since forming a New Mexico backcountry pilot group in 2010, accomplishments include:
See our New Mexico Airports Map (AIRPORTS from main menu). The airports with potential recreational activities are designated in BLUE. Additionally, airports that have been closed and are not usable and that we are attempting to reopen arein RED. As the BC Committee accumulates information and airport briefings, we will add content and you can access it by clicking on the airport and following the links.
We hope that you enjoy flying amongst the beautiful landscapes and recreational airstrips that we are so fortunate to have here in New Mexico. Fly safely, and remember your responsibility as pilot in command to be fully prepared and capable of the requirements needed for recreational and backcountry flying.
