NMPA Backcountry Flying Clinic in Truth or Consequences, NM

Friday, June 15, 2012
Sunday, June 17, 2012



Location - Truth or Consequences, NM

6/15 thru 6/17 – Back country training: Grant Besley and George Slad will be holding a backcountry flying clinic in Truth or Consequences NM. It will be a beginning introduction covering everything from safety considerations, to planning to what to have in the airplane, etc. They will also have instructors and do some flying with all particpants, including travel to local backcountry strips like Beaverhead, Me Own, Chloride, Negrito, etc. This is a great opportunity and I hope you all can make it!!

This will be a basic course in Back Country Flying with the aim of teaching you the basics of flying in the wilderness. There will be an extensive ground school and flights with qualified back country pilots to teach you the basic skills necessary to fly into wildemess airstrips in NM. See event flyer:


Info: Grant Besley 575-770-5961

Backcountry Training Class - On June 15 thru 17th, Grant Besley and George Slad are going to be holding a backcountry training class at T or C. The class will be a beginning intorduction and will involve classroom time as well as actual flying time to the backcountry. Class size is going to be very limited. If you would like to go to this, I would urge you to make your reservations now. Send me an email if you are interested and I will forward that to Grant. Also, later in the fall (date yet to be determined), Grant is going to have an advanced followup class that will probably be held in Utah. I am looking forward to meeting all of you in UT and getting some good instruction into some of those backcountry UT strips. As soon as we have more details, we will forward that to you. Thanks to Grant and George for all of their efforts!!!
