Master Aerobatic Instructor and spin training expert Rich Stowell is now based at Cascade Airport (U70) in the summer. Located 35 miles south of McCall, Idaho, the setting is reminiscent of the practice area east of Santa Paula Airport (SZP) where Stowell has spent most of his time since 1987.
“My wife and I fell in love with Idaho during an aviation-related trip in 2002,” Stowell said. “We’ve spent the last few years building a house, procuring a Super Decathlon, and securing a hangar. Everything is now in place.”
Stowell notes he is not leaving CP Aviation. “I’m just branching out to a summer location,” he explained. “CP Aviation is home when I’m in California.”
CP Aviation maintains several instructors on staff who are qualified to teach Stowell’s EMT Program, he added.
