Backcountry & Mountain Flying

For years before I even considered flight training, or had earned my private pilot certificate, I have been interested in backcountry and mountain flying. Last week, I took advantage of the opportunity to get some training in those very things while visiting the beautiful state of Montana. The excellent staff at Red Eagle Aviation gave me a block of ground instruction before taking me out to fly into the mountains and land in the backcountry in one of their upgraded Cessna 172s. It was a truly unforgettable experience, and has helped cement where I will focus my aviation energy and aspirations.
