Fly Utah - Galen Hanselman

A treasure trove of backcountry airstrips in what may be the last aviation frontier of the American West. Exploration and discovery is what Fly Utah! is all about.

Eat a mutton burger and share a sandstone cave with a Fundamentalist LDS Saint (along with his 4 wives and 38 children). Search for the lost gold mines of the Spanish Conquistadors and trade at an authentic Indian trading post – far off the beaten tourist path. 950 pages, 83 airstrips (57 of which are previously uncharted)

As you will soon discover, most of the backcountry airstrips featured in Fly Utah! are not shown on aeronautical charts. In fact, 57 of them have never appeared on an aeronautical chart. The GH-UT is a laminated chart of Utah showing the locations of all of these marvelous places along with boundaries of VFR noise sensitive areas, roads, waypoint identifiers, and tons of other features. You can mark it up with a permanent marker and erase it with a little tequila. It can also be used as an emergency ground cloth, a rain poncho and a waterproof fire starter.
