Landing on Hite Airstrip

This special 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 as your aircraft, and the conditions of the environment!   All of this within a new environment that will take your breath away.

The 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 links page for area links.
