You Fly Alaska - Bush Flight School
Palmer, Wolf Lake, Wasilla
Alaska's Cub Training Specialists
Our bush training begins with the mental preparation required for wilderness flying.
We start on huge gravel bars and stress precise aircraft control with low-speed spot landings.
As your confidence grows we begin site-selection training. You pick your
own landing surface and from the air, assess its length and condition. Your decisions are based on your own proficiency.
Making precise off-field landings on uncharted ground is part of the confidence-building process. This training provides the foundation for
mountain flying, where you'll practice high altitude landings on steep one-way strips, ridges and even glaciers.
We train the Alaska State Troopers.

Talkeetna...Alaska Range...Mt. McKinley
