"Fred, I really enjoyed flying with you in the Idaho backcountry. You know your stuff- stick and rudder, mountains, weather, and how to set up a learning environment. You are the real deal; keep up the good work! Best Regards, Sam" ~ from California
Backcountry Discovery flights are offered in four packages starting at just $249. Package choices vary in duration, but all provide both novices and experienced aviators with flight instruction tailored to their desire and experience. You'll take the controls as much or as little as you like as we fly over mountains and rivers, then land and depart from Idaho's legendary backcountry airstrips. Video options are offered that allow you to share and commemorate your flight.

"Thank you so much Fred for the amazing backcountry training experience. Your plane was in perfect shape and a lot of fun to fly. Your backcountry knowledge and ability to communicate to me in a concise yet complete manner was exactly what I was hoping to get out of training. Having the ability to get out and take a moment to soak in the beauty of the backcountry strips and rivers/creeks was icing on the cake. You exceeded all my expectations! Thank you for providing me a 5-star flight training experience that was memorable and beyond FUN!!!" ~ Lori from Georgia
