Experience the thrill of real canyon flying!
The central Idaho wilderness: where the Main Salmon and Middle Fork
Salmon River systems comprise the second and third deepest canyon networks in North America. Hell's Canyon just
to the west is the deepest. More than three dozen public use airstrips lie in the bottom of canyons or on ridges
and mountain basins in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness and surrounding areas, where pilots can find
world class fishing, hiking, flying, whitewater rafting, and more.
Visit again soon for photos and
tips on flying the back country, including common approaches and operations at many of the more popular strips.
