My wife and I made the transition from one Washington (DC) to another (WA State) at the end of last year. I've met some great pilots around the Port Townsend area where we now live. I'd like to broaden my flying connections and increase my flying opportunities with the backcountry community west of the Cascades. Some of the Maule owners in this region are already making plans to connect, but I'm eager to learn about good destinations from...
The purpose of this group is to bring together experts and non experts alike who have in common a love for Back Country Flying and also share an interest in documenting their aerial adventures either with digital still or video cameras.
Oh yeah, you Leica M4 and Argus C3 guys are also welcome. J In fact everyone is welcome. Not only will most folks hopefully learn to elevate their photography skills a notch, but also be able to...

Wikipedia says the Mid Atlantic states include Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York. I'm OK with that as a starting point. I know of several Maules in the area and at least one Super Cub. Other back country pilots in the region have shown me some great spots and I'd like to see the region grow in back country, or at least grass strip flying.
Now that there are several Texas pilots on board, seems like our own group is in order. You don't have to live in Texas to fit in. If you regularly visit or pass through, feel free to join in. Share get togethers, fly-in/fly-out ideas, and anything else you feel worthy of discussion here.
A place that all who fly or wish to fly in Canada may discuss topics of interest and also a place that Canadians can discuss national aviation issues without boring those that have a flying season longer than 60 days a year.
Often touted as the ultimate do-everything aircraft, the Cessna 182 Skylane's legacy is almost as old as the Skywagon. Boasting between 225hp and 260hp (modified), the Skylane is still in production today. Most every modification available for Skywagons is available for Skylanes, as well as big tires and bigger nosewheel forks.
A Knowledge Base entry for the 182 has been...
This is a group including southern Missouri, Northern Arkansas, and Part of North Eastern Oklahoma. This region is known as the Ozarks and contains mountainous terrain different than most of the country. Similar to the Appalachians, the Ozark mountains are not as large, but they provide a great place to fly over and around.
This group is for all of you / us that fly the Sierra circuits. We have a circuit on all four points of the compass. North, South, East and West. Lets get this group rolling with fly outs, photos and all sorts of strip bagging fun.
Regional group for the most prolific flying state in the Union. This group provides a place for local members of The Last Frontier to arrange get-togethers, fly-ins, or share local news.
North to the Future!
The popular Rans S7 has a large following in the backcountry community, and rightly so. This Rotax-powered taildrager is a formidable bush machine. The S6 is the similar side-by-side model. The S20 is going to be a great backcountry machine.
