ASA Mountain, Canyon, and Backcountry Flying (Softcover Book)

Product Description

Looking for adventure? Add “backcountry flying” to your plan. Pilots have been drawn to exploring the highest mountains to the deepest canyons for more than a century.  And there are places that hikers and horses would have trouble exploring that you can get to with the right airplane and a sound understanding of your own and your plane’s capabilities, and the conditions enroute to your destination.

Mountain, Canyon, and Backcountry Flying allows pilots to get off the beaten path and enjoy the outdoors. It opens a whole new world of recreation, including airplane camping, hiking, fishing, and staying at remote guest lodges or bush camps in areas without easy access via roads or water.

Backcountry flying, however, does not have to include sleeping on the ground under the wing of your plane—you certainly can if you want to—but there are remotely located lodges and camps where you have a choice: drive for a day or more over slow, winding roads, or fly several hours and land at multiple-star lodge.

“Back Country Flying” is not for the faint-of-heart or the uninformed. Flying “into the wilderness” often involves operations over desolate, inaccessible terrain in unforgiving environments. This requires pilots to be mentally prepared, be appropriately equipped, understand both their own and their airplane’s limitations, and apply the same commitment to safety as with any other flying.  

Operating over mountains, navigating through canyons, taking off and landing on unimproved, high-altitude airstrips in confined areas, and maximizing airplane performance requires specialized skills. In ASA’s Mountain, Canyon, and Backcountry Flying you will get tips and insights from pilots who “have been there,” that have collectively amassed more than 150 years and thousands of hours of experience as professional mountain and backcountry pilots and flight instructors.

Recreational pilots, flight instructors, even “old heads,” will benefit from this book. Fundamental concepts include preparing for, planning, and conducting mountain and canyon flights, airport operations, situational awareness, aircraft performance, risk management, selecting appropriate emergency equipment and supplies, and emergency operations. Analysis of accident scenarios, accounts from the authors’ own experiences, and contributions from seasoned backcountry pilots and instructors expand on material detailed in the text. Each chapter includes exercises to help the reader understand and apply the information to their own flying, and beautiful color illustrations will inspire pilots to seek out their own awe-inspiring destinations.
