Jul 1-5 (Wed-Sun) Exploring the Great Basin and Continental Divide

 

From the Bonneville Salt Flats to Leadville to the Grand Canyon and everything in between.

 

This year San Carlos takes on an aggressive itinerary to give a pilot a broad spectrum of experience from flying the challenging terrain of Northern California Coastal Mountain Airports to the Great Basin of Nevada & Utah to the highest elevation airport of Leadville in the Colorado Rockies and then on to Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon and finishing at the lowest altitude airport of Furnace Creek, Death Valley. After this trip, you will be experienced in 95% of terrains you will ever fly.
