Join in the fun as we fly together through the great state of Utah, the heart of the intermountain west. With more national parks than any other state (excepting only California and Alaska) it boasts exceptionally varied and concentrated beauty. Beginning at the northern tip of Utah we will fly the entire state from north to south in a series of ten flights, over barren deserts and forested mountains, through deep red rock canyons and across fertile meadows.
We welcome all sim pilots, new and old! Come join us for some fun flying, fascinating scenery, and great conversation.
