"Excellent! The caliber of instruction and instructors was outstanding. Every detail was attended to. My expectations were high and it far exceeded even that. Thank you for a fabulous experience."
Tim Gadler, Salt Lake City UT
"After your course, I feel I can navigate mountainous terrain with a lot more confidence and safety. I am now also a lot more in tune with my aircraft's performance. Thanks for the outstanding instruction!"
Dirk ter Veer, Boise ID
"I learned a lot. I'm twice the pilot I was before your seminar. Thanks for an outstanding learning experience."
Mike Drotter, Idaho Falls ID
course gives credence to the saying, 'The
more you know, the more you know you need to know more...'
While I learned to manage the aircraft with better skill and
confidence - the biggest lesson I learned was how much everyone
NEEDS this course before attempting a flight into the backcountry!
Thanks for the great instruction. I'll be back to learn more!
"Your school is
a great learning experience. You and your staff have a
very nice way of serving an appropriately sized slice of "humble
pie" to the uninitiated. I have since had time to transfer
the techniques to float flying and have found the stabilized
approach works very well in small high altitude lakes.
Patterns start a little higher, which adds a safety margin.
I am also still thinking about dropping my toes to the bottom of
the rudder peddles during take off."

"I can't believe it! I woke up and found myself in San Rafael today. What a dream I had this past week about a flying seminar in Idaho. I'll have to come back to see if this really happened. You people are great and I learned alot."
Tim Bennett, San Rafael CA
was very impressed! This
course is superb! The
syllabus and course
excellent, the instructors
are hand-picked, and
top-notch, each having
experience. The FAA even
qualifies this for the
Wings Pilot Proficiency
Program. The flying is
simply awesome! This is
beautiful country. When flying
in Alaska several years
ago, I was told that if I
wanted to really learn
mountain flying, go to
Idaho. I'm glad I
did! I highly recommend
this course! It could save
your life someday."

"We had a
such a good time this week. For me it was the perfect balance
between high-intensity learning and relaxation. I am so impressed
with the quality of the program and your attention to detail. This
week saw a huge improvement in my self-confidence and skill level.
The instructors are finest I have ever met, and I feel so
fortunate to have been able to fly (or "hangar fly")
with them. I think that the "residential" quality of the
Sulphur Creek seminar increases the opportunity for learning on an
informal basis, and that's part of what makes it so much
"My experience of
my third 'McCall Mountain' course and my second advanced course
was virtually perfect. I did
not attend the course this time to learn anything specific. I
attended because #1, I love back country flying and #2, I knew
that the more experience I had in the back country, the
safer I would be if I someday had to put my airplane down in a
bad place. McCall Mountain Canyon Flying has once again
fulfilled, to the max, all of my expectations.
You can count
on me being there with you in future courses!"
