Airfield Guide, NM Listings 

The Airfield Guide is a repository for information about out-of-the-way airports and places that most pilots don't know about. The site is under development and maintained by the RAF (Recreational Aviation Foundation) to to share information about airfields not generally available to the public. Airstrips are continuously added to the Guide. The Backcountry Committee of NMPA decided to join the Airfield Guide, and have it be the repository for information on recreational and backcountry airstrips across New Mexico.
