Backcountry Idaho

2 Review(s)

Visit some of the best backcountry airstrips in the Rocky Mountains. Explore scenic wilderness, vast pine forests, and steep canyons in search of pristine beauty and the next runway challenge.

Take a flight with backcountry expert Todd Peterson as he explores some of the remote and beautiful country featured in Galen Hanselman's "Fly Idaho!" pilot's guide.

Fly right seat on the actual approaches and departures of these spectacular backcountry airstrips with Todd at the controls of his high-performance, custom designed, King Katmai.

Pilots of all skill levels will truly enjoy the exhilaration and adventure of Idaho backcountry flying at its best with Backcountry Idaho.

    Backcountry Idaho provides both entertainment and a cockpit view of the approaches and departures listed in my book, "Fly Idaho."

    While the videography is spectacular, this DVD is also filled with helpful and interesting comments for both pilots and passengers. I particularly like it because unlike many current aviation DVDs that show things you probably shouldn't do in an airplane, this video shows you things you should do.

    Follow along as Todd Peterson makes level-headed decisions before tackling these spectacular and unforgiving airstrips. "Backcountry Idaho" is well produced and an excellent complement to my book. I highly recommend it.

    My love affair with Idaho’s backcountry airstrips has been nurtured and developed during the past 40 years, always providing a constant challenge of one’s skills and judgment.

    If you want to see a part of the country that stole my heart, join Todd Peterson in his King Katmai on departure from Mile Hi airstrip to explore 11 Idaho backcountry strips.

    My only disappointment with this excellent video is that, with the amazing capabilities of the King Katmai, I expected to see Todd land crosswise on the strips rather than along their length.

    Backcountry Idaho allows you to encounter many of my favorite strips and experience the challenge and majesty of backcountry flight. I loved it!
