We're so excited to
have our courses back in beautiful Bluff, Utah, where we'll be staying at the
Recapture Lodge. This is an All-Inclusive course which includes
approximately 12-16 hours of flight instruction and ground school.
That's about double the flying time of our basic course!
will concentrate on confined area
approaches, the emergency maneuver “canyon turn”, combined with
expanding the skill of “you found the airstrip now what!?” Also,
aerial surveillance, determining safe approaches and departures,
and determining where the abort point for that airstrip is, as well
aircraft, and the conditions of the environment! All of
this within a new environment that will take your breath away.
Canyonlands are an aviators dream. To view the splendor from above,
navigating the valleys and canyons across deep gorges, and gazing at
odd and mystic rock formations. Aviating across this vast and remote
wilderness you will catch glimpses of cliff dwellings and old
abandoned uranium mines. The many backcountry airstrips serve as
trailheads to self guided hikes to view ancient Petro glyphs. You'll
wonder in amazement...
How old are they? What do they mean?
And what is next on this trip? That would be enjoying lunch at Goulding's Resturant after landing. As you walk to the facility you
can visit the Navajo women that weave rugs in their hogans. In
addition we'll be visiting the Goulding's Museum and Trading Post
who will provide us with insights into this area's rich and colorful
history. Afternoon river trips down the San Juan are also
available with private reservation! Please view our
