What to Expect from our Backcountry Flight Instruction Course
Our goal is to teach you how to navigate the beautiful and extreme terrain of the mountain west with confidence. Expect one to two hours of ground instruction upon arrival to get familiar with the operations we expect to perform.
We plan an early morning departure to the backcountry airstrips. After flying for one to two hours, we take a break and enjoy a fly in breakfast at a local lodge or a wilderness picnic. We go over previous and expected events and then continue flying in the area.
Following another three to five hours of flying, we overnight in the area. Overnights can be the nearest town, our point of origination or a backcountry lodge.
We suggest that you plan a minimum of three days to get a solid base of knowledge from the course.
