Instruction fees are $110/hour for flight instruction and $85/hour for ground instruction. We have found that the hours spent on the tailwheel sign-off can be anywhere from 10-15 hours depending on all factors involved. Meaning if you've ever had any time in a conventional wheel aircraft? Experienced cross-wind landings and wheel landings? We do most of the training off-pavement so you will experience some of our wonderful backcountry as well!

This course curriculum focuses on Advanced Airmanship Skills using basic “Stick-and-Rudder” theory.
Course contents include, “ground and flight training that enables pilots to prevent and recover from aircraft stalls and upsets” and “expanded crosswind training, including training for wind gusts”. We get back to the basics of navigation by conducting drainage navigation using dead reckoning, pilotage and your trusty compass. This Stick and Rudder approach has been our specialty since the foundation of Mountain / Canyon Flying Seminars in 1996.
We build Advanced Airmanship Skills courses to meet your training needs in your aircraft or rent one of our aircraft for your custom course curriculum.
Course price will be determined once your curriculum is developed. Completion certificate is provided at the end of your course.
