This manual addresses many of the concepts required to optimize safety while operating in this type of environment, epitomized by the Idaho backcountry. This manual is to be used only in conjunction with ground and flight instruction provided by McCall Mountain/ Canyon Flying Seminars, LLC.

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. Don’t expect paved foot trails with cutesy little informational signs here. Be the first to explore ancient Anasazi cliff dwellings or squeeze through a thousand-foot-deep, 2-foot-wide slot canyon. 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.
Our Cargo Net Comes in 3 different sizes:
Our strap uses an over-center cam snap hook used to cinch the load tight, or you can pick up a similar device such as a cargo tie down strap at your local auto parts store. Our straps use the same hooks that are on your net and use approved parts but the unit itself has not been given an approval or PMA # yet, but we're working on it. You’ll want two sets.
