EAGLE, Alaska: The National Park Service has issued a special use permit to Intermap Technologies of Englewood, Colorado to fly and land a helicopter at a site in Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve between June 23 and August 31, 2016 as part of the Alaska Statewide Digital Mapping Initiative (SDMI).
The site being utilized is 20 miles north of Eagle, just east of the Yukon River and north of the Tatonduk River (Sheep Creek) in the Ogilvie Mountains. The permit holder will make only a small number of landings at the site throughout the course of the permit in order to install and remove (at the end of the permit period) an aluminum radar reflector utilized for the mapping process. As the exact dates of these flights will be determined by weather and other factors, the National Park Service advises aviators and other users to be cautious while flying and traveling in this area throughout the time frame of the permit.
Additional park information is available on the web at www.nps.gov/yuch or by calling the Eagle Visitor Center between 8:00 am –5:00 pm at (907) 547-2233.
