    Taildragger strips

    Here in Alberta, the provincial Alberta Aviation Council publishes a list of all landing spots in the province and updates every three to four years. New ones when printed are mailed out to members.

    Per the png, the colour map of the province is about six feet high and there is a booklet that goes with it that details each strip.

    The big deal is that it has all the taildragger forestry and farm strips as well.

    OK, that makes me feel better. I'm going to put a watermark on it so others can't take credit for it. I don't care who has it but I just don't want someone else taking credit for it!

    The Watermark is a good idea but might I suggest something more like a footnote - that is fine print running up and down the vertical margins left and right sides of the paper.

    That way it can be legible but in no way obtrusive. You have put alot of work into the airstrip listing and I presume intend to update it on occasion. As such, a watermark that also includes revision dates is something that would be welcomed and referred to.

    It is sort-able by state.
    I see some omissions but many BAC members might find it useful.

    In Massachsuetts I would add Myrics in Berkley, Tradewind on Martha's Vineyard, KTAN in Taunton, and others that I will eventually think of.
    Myricks (1M is in the spreadsheet. KTAN is 1900' and didn't meet my minimums of 2000' and Tradewind is Private Use and this was public use airports only.

    Tradewind is a funky grass airport on the popular island of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.
    It is pretty much open to anyone who gets permission. It is one of 3 airports on The Vineyard; KMVY, 1B1 Katama and Tradewind.

    In the old days you had to pass a landing-inquiry administered by Carolyn the airport manager. She wanted to see your logbook. If you only landed on long runways you didn't get to use Tradewind. 2,200' with tall trees at each end.

    Thread drift: Today marks exactly 30 years of having a pilot certificate. Got it on July 7, 1990 one hour before my oldest son got his.

    I'm up for a copy of the airports that allow camping.
