June 28-July 2 (Wed-Sun) 5-Day Colorado Mountain Flying

Event Date: 
Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - 7:00am to Sunday, July 2, 2017 - 7:00pm

Each year an armada of FlyOutGroup airplanes departs the Bay Area bound for a fun and amazing mountain flying adventure!

This year we head back to Colorado for some awesome Rocky Mountain flying. We will take the northern route through Utah, landing at the Class B KSLC for an overnight stay in Salt Lake City. Day two we journey into the heart of the Rockies for a two-night stay in Salida, Colorado, our home base for mountain flying. Salida is situated among the best mountain passes and a few minutes south of the famous Leadville Airport, North America’s highest airport at 9927’. Day Four we overfly the Grand Canyon en route to Las Vegas.

The trip is a great opportunity to complete your G1000 avionics or airplane-specific checkout and earn your high performance endorsement. Each plane will have 1 CFI and 2 pilots on board. Your registration fee is a $200 deposit and event fee is your CFI daily rate and aircraft flight hours. With two pilots per CFI and aircraft, the daily rate is halved between you and whomever you fly with to get mountain flying experience.

It promises to be an unforgettable flying adventure with plenty of room for ground-based fun as well.
