A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Big Southern Butte is one of two domes rising from a sea of basalt near the center of the eastern Snake River Plain in Idaho. The butte is one of the largest volcanic domes in the world, but at 300,000 years old it is also one of the youngest. Hikers who trek to the 7,550-foot high summit are rewarded with spectacular panoramic views. Photo by Devin Englestead, BLM Upper Snake Wildlife Biologist.
First light at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Established in November 22, 1939, the refuge has provided a critical stopover and wintering spot for thousands of sandhill cranes, geese and other waterfowl for 75 years. Bosque del Apache's sandhill crane population has multiplied from 18 birds in the 1840s to more than 20,000 birds today. Photo by Kim Hang Dessoliers (www.sharetheexperience.org).

Fleet Management is responsible for maintaining the aircraft owned by the Department. Computerized maintenance records are kept on each fleet aircraft to insure that appropriate maintenance is being performed and that each aircraft is maintained in an airworthy condition. Computerized maintenance records make it possible to accurately forecast major maintenance months and years ahead of time to coincide with the budgeting process.
The Aircraft Use Report Manager (AURM) is used to create small aircraft use report data files which are emailed to OASfleetmanager@ios.doi.gov for uploading into the FBMS system. Download the latest version of the AURM by selecting the appropriate link below, these files are compressed in .zip format.
Technical Services has also developed a "next generation" Aircraft Use Report Manager application for iPads. Because the AURMA is not released to the public, it is not available on the iTunes app store. Instead, contact Sherry Lambert (208-433-5084, email@example.com) for an invitation to the download website.
