Backcountry is an informal but widely used term that refers to land that is isolated, undeveloped, remote and difficult to access. It includes federally designated and administered wilderness areas where access is usually permitted only on foot or horseback—no wheeled vehicles allowed except (in many cases) airplanes.
For backcountry pilots, flying is about access: access to remote and beautiful places; access to a unique freedom; access to more time, solitude, peace, quiet, pristine forests, rivers and lakes.
However, flying low and slow does have its unique set of challenges.
If you ever wondered about what it would be like to fly the backcountry, join us tonight as Bush instructor
Lars Ljungqvist, from Tac Aero located at The Dalles (4DLS), Oregon shows us the beauty and challenges of backcountry flying.
Lars Ljungqvist is a Bush Pilot with TacAero and holds a CFII, MEII.
TacAero’s goal is to train pilots beyond FAA minimums so they are prepared for the adventure that is bush flying. They offer a unique tailwheel training program, developed in-house, that has proven to produce a safer and more skilled aviator.
