The Idaho back country is a piloting Mecca, with outstanding scenery and challenges to any level of aviator. From large, relatively flat strips with low difficulty ratings to those that require you to be at the top of anyone’s game, you’ll find places to go that can only be reached by air. Ground-bound mortals need not apply… or they need to get a horse and be ready for a few days travel.
Of course, being that these are the mountains, it’s summer, and the real world has weather, expect the winds and thermals to come up by noon. So just like SCUBA divers who’ve used up their nitrogen quota for the day, pilots out here need to find a nice place with a comfortable place sit – and a good book wouldn’t hurt either. Don’t expect to find any fancy digital services for your i-thingy. We found a great cabin at h Flying B ranch on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River the other afternoon, and here’s the view from the front porch.
A room with a fabulous view, three meals a day, and a runway for your bush plane–all wrapped up in quiet. Just another way to enjoy yourself and your Homebuilt!
