If you’ve watched any of Backcountry Aviation’s popular STOL Tips video series, you might consider adding one of their seminars to your continuing education.
Upcoming locations include: Burnet, Texas (Dec. 10-11, 2016); Phoenix, Ariz. (Feb. 11-12, 2017); and Rockin 7 Ranch, Wyoming (Apr. 29-30, 2017).
Seminars include five hours of ground instruction and 1.5 hours of flight time in your aircraft. Ground instruction — from highly experienced instructors and pilots — explores the facts and physics around safe operations into recreational airstrips. The primary focus is on arrivals and departures.
Each location offers two attendee options: Ground school costs $250; while the full course with flight time costs $725 and is limited to 20 participants.
