Abstract:Aircraft makes possible ready access to areas formerly isolated and wilderness in character. The regulation of use of aircraft in isolated areas is a new problem for administrators of primitive land. Foresters in public employ and those concerned with maintaining the uniqueness of remote wildlands will be interested in the committee's study and their recommendations. Legal authority for necessary regulations already exists where the land is in solid public ownership. The committee believes that the problems raised can readily be met by a few simple regulations that will not seriously interfere with general use of aircraft.
