Do you love backcountry flying?

Our Feb. 22 print issue will feature a special focus on Backcountry Flying and while we have a lot of great stories lined up (with a lot of help from the Recreational Aviation Foundation), we wanted to tap into the experiences and knowledge of our readers. We’re looking for your stories — Why do you enjoy backcountry flying? What are some of your favorite places to fly? What do you bring on every backcountry trip? How do you make flights more enjoyable and, of course, safer? Can you share any tips you’ve picked up along the way for new pilots who are ready to venture off the beaten path?

We’d also love to showcase photos from your many backcountry adventures. You can send photos and comments to janice@generalaviationnews.com or, if you prefer, add your comments below.
