President’s Corner Andrew George

The Idaho Aviation Association was

formed 30 years ago. It was based upon protecting the backcountry and its irreplaceable airstrips. The association has never forgotten this mission. Nor is it the only one. But you should never forget where you come from.

The atmosphere in our current aviation world, let alone our

population as a whole, is growing. We will continue to see our Idaho air system taxed as it is subjected to ever-increasing use.

There is so much talk about pilot shortages and challenging careers not being filled. That the airlines need people. Well, I can’t say that is my observation here in Idaho. I see a generation of pilots rising to the surface and energizing the ranks. Bringing new life and blood to an aging yet still-involved pilot group.

These new pilots are not just looking at the world with epaulettes in their eyes, but through the glareshield of helmets, while throwing an airplane around like it is a dirt bike. Slinging the craft sideways, up and down, jerking it back and forth, while at times just inches from the ground. Some may be wondering what I am talking about. Really, not too complicated. That is, for those who have been to the High Sierra in October. The High Sierra Fly-In, hosted by Kevin Quinn and the Flying Cowboys, has been evolving for ten years now. So, if you look deeper than just a bunch of desert rats punching holes in the sky in Nevada and Utah, you will see what is lying beneath the surface. This is what is going to put the IAA back into the spotlight of where our core came from.

The High Sierra Fly-In (HSF) is a reflection of market trends. The demographic of its competitor may very well be a similar type of guy and gal. The demographic of those who go to watch and experience it is another story. You will find, however, some similar characteristics through all those who both participate and watch. Everyone sees the beginning of a new way to challenge yourself in your airplane.

Now, many other airplane events have challenges. Aerobatic pilots display precision, with judges critiquing every move. Reno Racers live by one rule…go fast turn left. Red Bull racers take the best of both aerobatics and Reno, but compete alone on a course. But STOL Drag is another story. You race side-by-side against another aircraft in a plane, doing things planes were not really made for. I guarantee Clyde Cessna had no aspiration to see his Skywagons in a full-slip, high angle of attack, at full throttle, five feet above the ground. However, I think he might have liked this. What the users and observers have in common is the joy of a new aviation challenge. It is relatively easy, and, practically speaking, affordable to get involved and participate. The experimental class of aircraft and the unlimited potential is what every garage shade tree mechanic truly loves. Now, I am not saying the IAA is going to be creating a drag race of its own. What I am saying is that, within the ranks of this new energy and aircraft are

many young and excited people. The young men and women, and the kids, are literally enthralled, and their zest is so strong and very apparent!

The airplanes used in this event have a common design aspect. STOL perfromance is the heart of their design. These excited young and future pilots will create a new demand for aircraft. They will exercise their airplanes in ways previously unheard of and in places not talked about. I am truly in awe of what will come out of this endeavor, created less than four years ago. I can say that I competed in the very first STOL Drag. No, I didn’t win… Again, I’m not talking so much about the act of STOL Drag, but the ability of this type of event to recruit, inspire, and create pilots who may otherwise never have become pilots.

Aviation, in my mind, is, and has been, an excitement and challenge for people to explore and conquer. But this is not your grandpa’s way of doing it. I liken this sense of energy to that of the old-time barnstormers who toured the country, displaying crazy skills for nickels and personal thrills. Those people did more for aviation than so many since. It reached into our souls and hearts and made us think: WOW—I want to do that!

I go to the HSF to see what the crowd thinks now. I personally know the top racers—heck, the number one and two winners this year are both based at Nampa, Idaho. Congrats by the way to Toby Ashley and Steve Henry. Toby beat Steve this year, but I imagine Steve is already looking at how to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

Idaho has, built into it, many of the attractions desired by the people who attended the HSF. Challenging country and terrain that will test their skills is all around our state. Combine that with the incredible beauty of the mountains, canyons, forests, and rivers, and they will come. This emerging group of people and types of aircraft required, combined with the attitude and youth, will be looking at Idaho as a place to visit.

Look, we might as well realize and accept that the secret is out. All we have to look forward to is growth. Sorry, it’s going to happen, and there is literally nothing we can do about it. So let’s plan for it. Get involved and be a part, I say. Otherwise, accept the fate of uncontrolled abuse and loss of privileges.

The IAA is mindful of this growth. I have been preaching it for a long time now. I love the backcountry. I love the freedom its gives and the challenges it provides. In no way though, do I forget the power of abuse and neglect to ruin something, and the fact that there will always be someone who wants to take it away.

The HSF is worth every penny to experience at least once. If you go, you will see exactly what I am talking about. The smiles, the camaraderie, the excitement, and above all, the joy of flying, in everyone there. This is true for anyone who flies anything. I say this because people flew in with all types of planes. They came out to just watch and be a part of aviation—from PC-24 jets to Antonov AN-2—and of course my trusty Skywagon. So, be prepared to fly every time, but

be prepared to fight to keep that right. Andrew 208-794-4480 [emailprotected] Page 2

District 4 – Magic Valley

Kerry Requa Flying in the fall months is always my favorite. The reasons are many: the colors, the cool crisp air, the increased performance after a summer of fighting density altitude issues, and more. As I get older, I appreciate many things I never took time to enjoy before. Each flight has

its own purpose and highlights. Among friends recently, the conversation turned to, as usual, our flying adventures. After returning home, I recalled our conversation; the places we discussed, different airstrips, weather, and unusual sights and events. As I sat there, musing over past flights in my mind, I thought, hey get out your logbooks and review some old flights.

My first logbook entry is March of 1979. I rented a 172 from Reeder Flying Service in Twin Falls for $12.50/hour and the instructor was $10/hour. I am on logbook number 6 now, so I had plenty of flights to reminisce about and review. At first, I just flipped pages and looked at entries I was specifically curious about. Memories flooded in with each page. I have old photos as well and trying match the photos to the logbook entries proved a daunting task. I never cataloged the photos, so it was a hit-and-miss endeavor. Eventually, I gave up on the photo research and stuck to my logbooks. Along with the fond memories, looking back brought a few not so bright. I came across one entry that read, engine failure shortly after takeoff, aircraft destroyed during landing. We walked away, that's what is important. I looked in a different logbook and found a flight and a signature to remember. The aircraft was Race #55 VOODOO N6526D, a P51 Mustang. Bob Hannah's signature was accompanied by the comment ROLLS, LOW LEVEL and FUN. I won’t go into any details other than to say the comments were accurate. I also got to fly in N8677E, another P51 Mustang, in 1988 with Don Novas. The Blackfoot newspaper had an article around that time regarding some antics in a blue and white P51 and Don was in hot water for a while after that. All I can say about that flight is WOW, that man could fly a Mustang.

I came across so many other entries that really surprised me; I took some pretty good notes on many of my flights. The next time you get the chance, I encourage you to get out the old logs and take a trip down memory lane. Looking back at years of logbook entries is a great way to relive some of your fun flights. I hope all of you will make good log entries so you can enjoy them again, years from now. Take

care and Fly Safe. Tailwinds, Kerry Requa District 4 208- 221-7417 Page 3 Randy Bailey of Dillon’s Flying Service departs in P-51 “Daddy’s Girl”

District 6 – Idaho Falls/Salmon

Mike Hart

I mourn the passing of summer. So much to do, so little time. The good news is I got to fly tons and tons, got to camp at my favorite airstrip, got to fish at my favorite hole on Big Creek, and I have had the pleasure of hauling innumerable boaters, hunters, trail crews, and just a heap of cool people into

some of my favorite places. It was so much fun, I am already looking forward to next year. It will be great to land.

This year we almost skipped fall. I dropped some hunters off at Bernard with temperatures bouncing between the 60s and 70s and when I met them after their hunt, they were coming off the river with temps in the 20s. It seems like we are firmly into winter and bypassing fall. That is certainly true in the high country. Snow hasn’t closed Cold Meadows or other higher strips, but to drop someone off, there, you can’t really say you are 100% certain you will be picking them up unless you have an option for skis.

In terms of aviation in the District, there is much afoot in

Idaho Falls, where airport management appears to think GA is a burden rather than a blessing. That view is not uncommon with airport managers who work at airports that support airlines. Somehow, the mystique of big iron on the runway strokes their egos and gives them the illusion that if it wasn’t for large human mailing tubes filled with self-loading cargo and trapped farts, there would be no airport, not runway, no FAA, and their lives would have no meaning.

At KIDA, changes in lease terms and general uncertainty has resulted in the plummeting of hangar values. To combat this turn for the worse, local pilots and hangar owners are formally organizing to combat the assault.

For info, visit or contact [emailprotected].

Alas, our local airport manager sometimes needs to be reminded that the folks who buy 100LL also cover their budgets and the FAA grants that pave the runways are there for airports, whether they have an airline or not.

In Arco, ID, the problem is the lack of interest in being the custodian. It appears that both the county and city are both disinterested in managing the airport. Airports seem like optional unimportant infrastructure until something happens. Imagine the volcanos of Craters of the Moon becoming active again and covering the highway. It is not that far-fetched. The airport at Arco would suddenly become the community’s lifeline to the outside world. Stranger things have happened. If you are an aviator, take the time to get involved in some airport’s politics. Our airports need a voice.

Airport Support Received at KSUN Pilots: Airport Tree Removal Improves Safety

From the Idaho Mountain Express:

Local pilots say Friedman Memorial Airport is a little safer after about 200 cottonwood trees were removed from the south end of the runway over the summer.

Express photo by Willy Cook

According to airport Manager Chris Pomeroy, pilots have

reported they feel more safe flying in and out of the airport after the trees, which obstructed a portion of the runway known as the “runway protection zone,” were removed following a public hearing process and environmental assessment accepted by the FAA.

Two local pilots, John Strass and Walt Denekas, said in an interview that any obstructions to the runway can be hazardous if an plane cannot gain elevation fast enough due to engine failure, weather conditions or anything else.

The trees, on the Eccles Flying Hat Ranch just south of the runway, were part of a $2.26 million purchase of 65 acres of the ranch to enable the airport to come into compliance with an FAA mandate to have a secure runway protection zone. The zone is defined as “an area at ground level prior to the threshold or beyond the runway end to enhance the safety and protection of people and property on the ground.”

The south end of the runway was deemed unsafe due to the trees, because they forced pilots to pull up sooner on takeoff, effectively shortening the runway by 400 feet.

Denekas shared a story of an incident that took place about 20 years ago when he was flying a twin-engine plane leaving Aurora Municipal Airport in Illinois. One engine failed and the plane stopped rising. “I literally watched the trees pass by my window,” he said.

With the trees removed and a flat field south of the runway, Denekas said, the safety margins are much better. “It’s just a lot safer, especially if anything goes wrong.”

At the Friedman Memorial Airport Authority’s October meeting, Pomeroy said the first phase of the obstruction removal process—removal of the trees—is complete, and the second phase—removing the stumps and roots—would

begin this month.

Airport Support Needed at KIDA Pilots: We Need Runway 17/35 and Hangars

A meeting was held at IDA on October 15 to discuss

issues of importance to GA pilots and plan how to move forward. 23 people attended the meeting, showing that there is good support for forming an organization to represent their interests at IDA. However, there are at least 75 GA hangar tenants at IDA and many more GA pilots and aircraft owners, so we are hereby reaching out to that larger pool of stakeholders to get them involved! Momentum is building. Please make plans to attend the next meeting, scheduled for Nov 12 at the Aero Mark XL hangar at IDA. The Issues:

Over the last five years, the loosely-organized GA community at IDA has realized some really big achievements. Greatest among them was that Runway 17/35 was saved from a plan to close it. However, recent changes to private hangar land lease terms, without due consideration for the effects of those changes on the GA community, suggest that a formal organization, speaking as a unified voice, will be necessary. Two pending issues at IDA suggest the need for a stronger stakeholder voice. One of those is the update to the Airport Master Plan, scheduled for this fiscal year. The GA community deserves a substantial stakeholder presence in that planning process and a new organization may be necessary to make that happen.

The second major issue this organization must address is the need for City Hall to designate an airport advisory board. Even though IDA has grown to one of the largest airports in Idaho, it does not have any kind of advisory board. The airport is overseen by the Mayor and City Council, who have increasingly relied on the Airport Director for decision making as the airport, and the city, have grown and become more complex. Events of the last six months suggest there is a need for a stakeholder-based advisory board to set long-term goals for all aspects of the airport. Pressing for such an advisory board will be an important goal for this new organization.

The New Organization:

Who will be represented by this new organization? Comments included, “Anyone interested in flying.” “Anyone with a demonstrated interest in making the airport better for everyone.” “Anyone with a vested interest in aviation at IDA.” The idea of a “vested interest” was considered to include, not just those with money invested in aircraft and/or hangars, but anyone who has invested time and money in earning a pilot’s license.

What is the purpose of this group? A common theme that emerged during the meeting was to “Protect and Enhance our airport by representing the best interests of the public and all airport users.” The organization will seek to raise public awareness of the importance of GA to the economies and communities of eastern Idaho. Specific goals discussed included building a cooperative and collaborative relationship with airport management, playing a leading role in advocating for a stakeholder-based Airport Advisory Board, growing the GA community at IDA, and more.

What should the organization be called? Suggestions included Friends of IDA, Idaho Falls Airport Association (IFAA), IDA Airport Association (IDAAA), IDA GA Partners for Excellence, Idaho Falls Airport Partnership, and more. Discussions on the name and logo will continue at the meeting on Nov 12.

How should the organization be structured? There was general agreement for an Association-type LLC with a 5-person Board of Directors, designated committee chairs, and a Public Information Officer to ensure a unified voice with a consistent message.

Please make plans to attend the next meeting,

scheduled for Nov 12 at the Aero Mark XL hangar at IDA. Also, please help us identify those other GA users who

should be part of this group so we may invite them to join as well.

Idaho-Based Aviation Charity Helps The Bahamas

Did you know Idaho-based aviator Leslie Weinstein

started an amazing aviation charity, now doing international work? Weinstein owns Tru-Lock Aviation Fasteners in Boise. He started TF2 as a way to save critically-endangered sea turtles that sometimes become trapped in cold water off the coast of New England. Volunteer pilots ferry the rescued animals to an aquarium in Florida for release into the wild. Weinstein explains: “Hurricane Dorian hit the Abaco Bahama Islands on Sep 1 and left a field of destruction, including loss of life. Because of our involvement with the International Federation Partnership (IFP), Turtles Fly Too was contacted to assist. How could one say no? IFP is a partnership of U.S. and International agencies, including NOAA, Homeland Security, Coast Guard, FWS, Customs, Canadian and Bahamian agencies, and more. TF2 is the only non-governmental entity ever invited to participate. Our partners called and we responded. Our first relief flight to the areas of devastation was to Freeport on Sep 6. The first aircraft in was a Kodiak, manufactured by Quest here in Idaho, that carried medical supplies. Five minutes later, the second aircraft to land, carrying medical staff and medical supplies, was Turtles Fly Too. We are an Idaho corporation with 501(c)(3) IRS status. All total, TF2 was involved in 43 relief flights.

In their thank-you letter to us, The Bahamas reminds pilots that, ‘While we quickly rebuild the affected islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama, we are working tirelessly to tell pilots that there are 14 other Bahama Island destination options that welcome travelers. We appreciate your support and your continued partnership. Heartfelt thanks from the

Bahamian people for the GREAT Support.’” Page 5

ADS-B: Ready or Not, Here it Comes! Tom Tyson, VP—Safety

How many folks out there said

something to this effect in the last two years or so: “January 2020, that’s a long way off. I’ll deal with that ADS-B stuff when we get closer to 2020.” Well, guess what, it’s almost here!! And…the application deadline for Exemption 12555 has passed.

Any airspace that requires the use of a Transponder today

will on January 01, 2020 also require aircraft to be equipped with a Version 2 ADS-B Out system. This can be either a 1090ES (DO-260B) ADS-B system or a UAT (DO-282B) ADS-B system.

For aircraft operating above FL180 (18,000 ft.) or to comply with ADS-B mandates outside the United States, you must be equipped with a Mode-S transponder-based ADS-B transmitter.

Do you consider yourself an expert on ADS-B operations? Regardless if you are an IFR-rated commercial pilot, general aviation private pilot, or light sport experimentalist, you should be intimately knowledgeable of how you, and all other aircraft will be operating when the new rules go into effect in just a few weeks. To get in the spirit, I’ve included a few references from the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Association Website.

For aircraft operating below 18,000 feet and within the United States ADS-B rule airspace, you must be equipped with either a Mode-S transponder-based ADS-B transmitter or with UAT equipment. There is an awful lot to know about the NextGen Air Transportation System, from rules, equipment, deviations, traffic, data, weather, etc.

Remember, you are just one of 44,000 flights per day in

our national airspace. Fly Safe!

Page 6


Starting January 1, 2020, you must be equipped with ADS-B Out to fly in most controlled airspace:

If you fly in this airspace you must be equipped with ADS-B

Airspace Altitude

Class A All

Class B Generally, from surface to 10,000 feet mean sea level (MSL) including the airspace from portions of Class Bravo that extend beyond the Mode C Veil up to 10,000 feet MSL (e.g. SEA, CLE, PHX)

Class C Generally, from surface up to 4,000 feet MSL including the airspace above the horizontal boundary up to 10,000 feet MSL

Class E Above 10,000 feet MSL over the 48 states and DC, excluding airspace at and below 2,500 feet AGL

Over the Gulf of Mexico at and above 3,000 feet MSL within 12 nautical miles of the coastline of the United States

Mode C Veil

Airspace within a 30 NM radius of any airport listed in Appendix D, Section 1 of Part 91 (e.g. SEA, CLE, PHX) from the surface up to 10,000 feet MSL

Above, you can see the front and back covers of a brand-new book: America’s Amazing Airports: Connecting Communities to the World. We are always talking about how we want to interest our younger generations in aviation. Here’s a perfect way to help do that. Award-winning Colorado aviation writer, Penny Rafferty Hamilton, Ph.D. has written this wonderful volume, designed to inspire, educate, and excite kids and teens about the wonders of airports. The more they learn about how airports work, and how they change the world, the more questions they will have. This book will help unleash that most powerful human emotion: curiosity!

Just in time for November National Aviation History Month! And holiday shopping lists! America’s Amazing Airports is an easy read for all ages with archival and contemporary photographs revealing the “magic” which happens at our airports outside and inside. America’s Amazing Airports was announced in celebration of the 90th anniversary of the October 23, 1929, beginning of our first North American transcontinental U.S. Air Mail service between New York City and Los Angeles, California,

an important factor in the early history of creating our national aviation transportation system. A portion of the book’s net proceeds will be donated to Spirit of Flight Foundation-SOF, Gordon Page, SOF founder, said, “We are so pleased to be a small part of this national aviation history project.” Hamilton continues, “Because we wanted to make this important educational tool readily available for airports and aviation professionals to share widely, we priced accordingly for America’s Amazing Airports book in print, eBook, and wholesale/bulk. The World of Airports chapter describes America’s important aviation transportation network. The Airport People chapter is a great introduction to aviation career opportunities. Throughout the book, amazing aviation and airport stories are included, too.”

America’s Amazing Airports is available on Amazon in print for $12.99 and eBook for $3.99.

I will be buying a copy for my niece, who loves airplanes!—

Winglets Save Fuel & Emissions from AvWeb

Aviation Partners, Inc. (API), based in Seattle, Washington, recently announced that its unique (and trademarked) Blended Winglet and Split Scimitar Winglet technologies have saved the world's commercial and business jet operators more than 10 billion gallons of jet fuel, resulting in a corresponding global reduction of over 105 million tons of CO2 emissions.

To put that amount of fuel savings in perspective, API looked at U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics for 2018 and found that 10 billion gallons of fuel would operate Alaska Airlines’ entire fleet of aircraft for nearly 14 years, or power roughly 450,000 cars in the city of Seattle for 34 years.

Blended Winglets using Aviation Partners technology have now been installed on almost 9,000 aircraft worldwide, including the Dassault Falcon 900/2000/50 series, Hawker 800 series, and Gulfstream II. Through the company’s partnership with JV Aviation Partners Boeing, their blended and split scimitar winglet technology is now being used on several Boeing models, including the Boeing Business Jet, and some variants of 737, 757 and 767 airliners.

“We've kept an exhaustive database of every delivery of a shipset of winglets on every business and commercial airplane,” said Gary Dunn, Aviation Partners, Inc. Vice-President of Sales & Marketing. “The data used to calculate the fuel savings worldwide is constantly being updated as new aircraft are put into service. For each type, we know how many were delivered, as well as the type’s average energy utilization and typical average stage length. After running our algorithm, the database tells us the worldwide fuel savings across all the airplanes using winglets with API technology,” Dunn said.

The API winglet technology saves fuel by reducing wingtip vortices, resulting in less drag, a lower fuel burn, and superior climb and cruise characteristics. Joe Clark, founder and chief executive officer of API, first introduced the company’s patented winglet technology for the Gulfstream

II in 1992.

Sandpoint, Idaho-based Tamarack Aerospace hopes to emerge from Chapter 11 protection by the end of the year and then resume expanding the range of aircraft that can benefit from its active winglet installation. The company was rocked by an emergency airworthiness directive that grounded more than 100 Cessna Citations equipped with the system earlier this year. The AD was based on a 2018 accident as well as inaccurate information from a pilot about an uncommanded roll. Tamarack has maintained that the events are both discredited as the basis for the ADs and offered details to support that contention in an October 22 media briefing. However, undoing all the damage from the chain of errors has taken some time since the grounding was lifted a few months ago. “We are continually getting the truth out there,” founder and CEO Nick Guida said.

Tamarack officials said the ADs were imposed in a regulatory climate influenced by the two fatal crashes of Boeing 737 Max jets, which appeared linked to a malfunction of the airliner’s maneuvering characteristics augmentation system. The crashes “kind of set a tone” for intensive scrutiny by regulators, Tamarack President Jacob Klinginsmith said.

All creditors have been paid and the company has done six installations since the AD was resolved. A hearing will be held Nov. 13 and a decision from the bankruptcy court is expected in the next couple of months. Guida said entering Chapter 11 was necessary to protect not only his company but the customers who have equipped their older aircraft with the winglets. The winglets have so far been installed on approximately 97 Cessna 525, 525A, and 525B twinjets.

At the National Business Aviation Association convention in Las Vegas, Tamarack reported that the company is operating normally, has booked 14 new orders for the active load alleviation system (ATLAS) winglets this year, is working to rebuild its workforce to pre-bankruptcy level, and is hard at work countering media misconceptions about Tamarack.

Winglets significantly improve climb performance and range of aircraft, but they can also overload the wing structure in rough air. The Tamarack system automatically unloads wings before the limits are reached. The company only makes systems for Citations, but Guida said there are thousands of airframes that would benefit from the technology and he hopes to have an announcement about new applications in the coming year. “There’s a lot of need

for this product,” he said. Page 8

DESTINATIONS Crista Worthy, Editor

Welcome to the “Destinations” section of The Flyline, where we offer a selection of vacation destinations for adventurous aviators across the U.S. Share this section with your family members and plan your next adventure together today!

ARIZONA TUCSON—Tucson is a great destination for pilots and others interested in military aviation and history. But there’s plenty more to enjoy, and, with mild temperatures in the 60s and 70s, Nov–Mar is the best time to visit.

Dia de los Muertos is the Mexican festival where people honor and remember loved ones who have passed on. During the All Souls Procession Weekend (Nov 1–3 this year) you can join 150,000 participants on the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long human-powered procession.

Visit Saguaro National Park to walk among the giant cactus that are synonymous with the West. You can camp in the wilderness or stay at the luxurious Lodge at Ventana Canyon. Or, make a great winter escape at Tanque Verde, one of America’s most venerable cattle and guest ranches.

Perennial award-winner Tanque Verde is a short free shuttle ride from Tucson International (TUS).

Saguaro National Park. The giant cactus plants can exceed 40 feet tall and 150 years in age, and often don’t grow their first “arm” until they are 75–100 years old. Photo by Saguaro Pictures via Wikipedia.

Tanque Verde occupies Arizona’s most beautiful Sonoran Desert landscape. Adobe walls and Santa Fe architecture perfectly complement the saguaro-studded hillsides around the ranch. Guests may enjoy horseback riding, the ranch spa, and fitness and nature centers. Fishing, mountain biking, hiking, basketball, and tennis are offered on site, while golf and hot-air ballooning are available nearby. Southwest Pueblo cuisine, outdoor BBQ, and the Doghouse Saloon ensure you never go hungry or thirsty. They have “glamping” vacations too! Photo courtesy Tanque Verde.

Incredible aviation museums include the Titan Missile Museum, Pima Air & Space Museum, and Davis-Monthan Aerospace Maint-enance and Regen-eration Center, where you can tour the world’s biggest military aviation boneyard. For more information on all these museums, the tours, and natural wonders, including the beautiful Aravaipa Canyon, see the January 2019 issue of

WILLIAMS—Best known as the “Gateway to the Grand Canyon,” Williams’ H A Clark Memorial Field Airport (CMR) lies 28 nm west of Flagstaff Pulliam Airport (FLG). When our kids were little, we flew to Williams and boarded the famous Grand Canyon Railway, in operation since 1901, that takes you up to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. On the way, our train was “robbed” by “outlaws” who seemed right out of an old Western movie, according to our kids. Out your window, the terrain changes from high desert to prairie to pine trees. Right now, you can sign up for the special Polar Express train, which runs Nov 8–Jan 4. Everybody will be dressed up in their finest Christmas PJs, so bring yours! Hot chocolate, Santa Claus, and that special Christmas bell are all part of the nighttime trip. Stay at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel in Williams for the complete experience. The lobby is beautiful, with its great stone fireplace and giant painting of the Grand Canyon. Route 66 history buffs can explore more than six blocks of historic buildings and shops bursting with memorabilia. South Rims Wine & Beer Garage features 16 Arizona craft beers and 28 wines, many from local vineyards. It’s a comfortable place to enjoy a beverage or two, with a handful of tables, plush chairs and a patio overlooking the Mother Road. For fine dining, don’t miss Red Raven, where you can savor entrées like brochette of lamb, accompanied by a good bottle of wine off their extensive list. On the other hand…this is Route 66, so if you feel more like a juicy burger

and a real cherry co*ke or a thick vanilla malt, you’ll want to stop by Twisters ’50s Soda Fountain, with a black-and-white floor, shiny red booths, and traditional Coca-Cola signage.

Bearizona is a drive-thru Wildlife Park nestled in a lush Ponderosa Pine forest. You will see lots of bears, plus bobcats, wolves, bighorn sheep, and many other animals, including a black jaguar. Let’s not forget that jaguars are very much native to Arizona. Over half the animals here are rescued or rehabilitated animals. Unable to be returned to the wild, they now live in large naturalistic enclosures.

It’s hard to miss Bedrock City, a paean to colorful kitsch. Built in 1972, the 30-acre park was one of a handful of Flintstones-themed campgrounds scattered across the country. Bronto slides, chick-a-saurus burgers, saber-toothed-tiger statues—what kid wouldn’t beg mom and dad to stop? It receives relatively few visitors these days and the emptiness makes it feel surreal. In fact, I’m not sure it’s still open. I just couldn’t resist the photo though! I did hear it’s going to be re-opened after a restoration, so keep the place in mind if you’re in town in the future.

You might not get a light show like this, but the Grand

Canyon is always magnificent.

BOISE—Make plans to see Impressionism in the Northwest at the Boise Art Museum, Nov 9–Feb 9. Impressionism, the revolutionary movement in painting to emphasize feeling over realism, started in France, but its influence spread across Europe and all the way to America. The show focuses on early 20th-century American artists who lived and worked in Idaho, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington. Their paintings evoke the region’s landscape in all its glory—from high deserts to lush evergreen forests, lofty peaks to alpine lakes.

First an acclaimed film, now a Broadway musical, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a server and gifted baker whose creatively named pies—The Key (Lime) to Happiness, Betrayed by My Eggs—are inspired by her dreams of escaping a humdrum existence. Mounted by an all-female creative team, the show appears in Boise’s Morrison Center as part of a U.S. tour, Nov 7–9.

Here's a vacation idea: Catalina Island, California. 26 miles off the coast of Los Angeles, yet it feels like a world away. The runway (AVX) was just rebuilt and it's in perfect shape. So fun to land here. Clay Lacy's United Air Lines DC-3 and a gorgeous Lockheed 12A on

the field to celebrate the airport's 50 birthday in 2009. Yes, the airport is 60 now! Below, Avalon’s beautiful harbor.

What can you do here? Check out the photos: Gazing through the portholes of Catalina Adventure Tours’ semi-submarine Nautilus is a classic Catalina experience. You’ll see plenty of garibaldi, the California state fish.

(Catalina, continued) Stroll along the harbor; the island has virtually no cars. You

can rent a golf cart though! Play golf on the oldest course west of the Mississippi. Did you know the island was once owned by the chewing-gum titan, William Wrigley Jr. of Chicago, who also owned the Chicago Cubs? The Cubs held spring training camp on Catalina Island for years. After you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy some Pacific lobster or other local seafood at the Avalon Grille. Their Wrigley Martini comes complete with a pack of Doublemint gum.

Nowadays, much of the island is owned by the Catalina Island Conservancy, which has done a fantastic job of restoring native vegetation and wildlife, including bald eagles. Go for a hike--you can hike the entire island or go for a short walk from the airport. You might spy a little Catalina Island fox. These animals were recently rescued from extinction and now number in the thousands. The airport restaurant serves great buffalo burgers, courtesy of the big beasts that roam the island. They were brought here for a film about a hundred years ago.

Go kayaking! You can go with or without a guide, or even camp overnight. You might even see some flying fish. Try the zip line! The 2+-hour course will also familiarize you with the island’s biology and history. Did you know that famed Western dime novel writer Zane Grey had a home here? He was an avid sportfisherman. Stay at the Hotel Atwater, or go for the beautiful Inn at Mt. Ada, up on the hill with panoramic views of the harbor. The weather is mild, year-round!

Catalina’s “Airport in the Sky” sits atop a mountain; landing and tiedown fees help pay for that brand new runway. To get to Avalon, you’ll take the Wildlands Express Shuttle, $34 round trip (you can also take it on an extended trip around the island). You can also take a private jeep tour or bike the

island; it’s perfect for mountain biking! Page 13

GRAND MARAIS—Gitche Gumee Getaway Gordon Lightfoot’s classic song aside, it may seem odd to suggest a wintertime visit to the farthest reaches of Minnesota, but a flight to Grand Marais (mar-AY) can indeed be the launching point of a fabulous cold-weather vacation. The town sits on the northwestern shore of Lake Superior (called Gitche Gumee by the native Ojibwe), surrounded by the Superior National Forest and backed by the Sawtooth Mountains. In winter the area becomes a rugged, frozen wonderland with miles of trails for snowmobiles, Nordic skis, and snowshoes. Pilots can take a scenic flight over the Gunflint Trail for a chance to view moose, wolves, and other wildlife. Fly to Grand Marais/Cook County Airport, where the Roy family operates Roy Aero Services. They may loan you a vehicle for a quick trip; otherwise, rent a car. The Roy family operates Roy Aero Services at the Grand Marais/Cook County Airport. In addition to their usual airport management and FBO duties, they’ve won numerous awards at Sun ‘n Fun and Oshkosh for their restorations of antique aircraft. This “Shell/Doolittle” Stinson was restored by the Roys between 2000–2005. Built for the Shell Oil Company and delivered on August 12, 1938, it was flown by aviation great Jimmy Doolittle. For nearly 140 flights from 1938–1940, Doolittle flew it around the U.S. while serving as Shell Oil’s Aviation Manager. Photo courtesy Roy Aircraft.

A floatplane circles over the frozen Grand Marais harbor. About 5 nm north of the harbor you’ll find the Cook County

Seaplane base (0G5) in the northeast corner of

Devil Track Lake. The lake is generally open May–Nov; the dock goes in by Memorial weekend. Planes with skis may land on the lake in the winter although the seaplane base is not maintained. Fuel is available during open water season. Photo courtesy Gary Siesennop.

Devil Track Lake and the Cook County Seaplane Base are about a mile southwest of CKC. Skiplanes may land on the lake in the winter, but the seaplane base is not maintained. “Artist’s Point” and the Grand Marais lighthouse. If you flew in low along the Lake Superior shoreline between Duluth and Grand Marais, you may have noticed a magnetic disturbance of as much as 18 degrees. It’s caused by iron in the ground. Beginning in the 1800s, iron ore extraction was a major contributor to the area’s economy. But Lake Superior (called “Gitche Gumee” by the native Ojibwe), can be fickle, as immortalized in the classic Gordon Lightfoot song “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” The Great Lakes freighter sank during an early November gale in 1975, with the loss of her entire crew of 29. Photo courtesy Gary Siesennop. Rent a cabin, cottage, or lake home at the Skyport Lodge, which offers airport pickup and a restaurant. This place is great year-round!

To explore this huge northern wilderness, you can drive along the Lake Superior shoreline, rent a snowmobile from Steve’s Sports & Auto (where you got your car), or rent snowshoes or skijoring or Nordic ski equipment from Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply. They offer guided tours as well, which can include ice fishing, ice climbing, and winter river skiing. You can use those snowshoes or Nordic skis on hundreds of winter trails around town and in the Sawtooth Mountains. Six miles north of Grand Marais, the George Washington Pines Winter Recreational Trail is an easy, 3.3 km looping trail that passes through a thick grove of Norway and white pines planted by Boy Scouts in 1932. The well-marked trail is open 24/7 so bring headlamps for an unforgettable Northcountry night experience. The Pincushion Trails, two miles north of town, offer beginner to expert trails for both classic and skate skiing. A warming

house is located at the parking lot off the Gunflint Trail. You’ll need a Great Minnesota Ski Pass, $10 daily, to ski or snowshoe on any groomed trail. A Nordic skier enjoys a sublime Northwoods winter day. As a

courtesy, when using wide, groomed trails, snowsho*rs should stay to the side to avoid spoiling the carefully groomed Nordic tracks.

(Grand Marais continued) The 286-mile Superior Hiking Trail loosely follows the Lake Superior shoreline, with parking areas every 5–10 miles, no permits needed. A challenging hike to the 1,178-ft summit of Pincushion Mountain offers panoramic views of Lake Superior. Snowshoeing along Lake Superior’s north shore feels like you’re walking beside a great northern ocean. Photo courtesy Cook County Visitors Bureau.

There are plenty of roads and trails for motorized sightseeing. The North Shore State Snowmobile Trail begins right where you’ll rent your snowmobile. Head into the woods, along the shoreline, or connect to the Gunflint snowmobile trail. A snowmobiler pauses on the Gunflint Snowmobile Trail beside a huge rock, likely deposited there by a long-gone glacier. Photo courtesy Cook County Visitors Bureau. By car, take County Road 12, aka the Gunflint Trail, a 57-mile National Scenic Byway. Buy gas and pack a lunch before leaving town. You’ll enter a true boreal forest wilderness; look for gray jays, moose, and grouse, and listen for wolves if you stop to snowshoe. A nighttime drive might even reveal the aurora borealis. 43 miles down the road you’ll find the Gunflint Lodge; if you’re looking for the ultimate Northwoods hideaway, you’ve found it.

Snowshoes stand at the ready in front of the Gunflint Lodge, first opened in 1925. Inside, Justine’s serves hearty Northwoods breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Photo courtesy Gunflint Lodge. Far from civilization, you can take a dogsled ride with the folks at Gunflint Lodge. Photo by Debbie Decker. Winter nights are the best time to catch the Aurora Borealis. Photo by T. Novitsy courtesy Cook County Visitors Bureau.

(Grand Marais continued) If you’re looking for trophy lake trout, it’s tough to beat ice fishing on Gunflint Lake. Gunflint Lodge offers ice fishing packages starting in mid-January when lake trout season opens. They’ll set you up with a portable shelter, ice auger, heater, bait, and tackle, plus help you find the best spots on the lake. When you return with your catch, they’ll help you fillet it and cook it up for you as appetizers with your dinner. Back inside, you can warm up in front of your cabin’s fireplace or with a sauna, soak in your private spa tub, and then savor dinner in front of the fireplace at Justine’s. Photo courtesy Gunflint Lodge. If you’d rather stay at Lake Superior, East Bay Suites offers luxurious condos on the harbor, while Anderson’s North Shore Resort has small cabins. Good eats can be found at My Sister’s Place and the Crooked Spoon Café; groceries at the Cook County Whole Foods Coop. East Bay Suites offers luxurious condos right on the Grand Marais harbor. Photo courtesy East Bay Suites.

17 miles north of Grand Marais, Lutsen Ski Resort boasts 90 alpine runs on four interconnected mountains, plus a terrain park, ski-and-stay packages, and concert/event packages. For something completely different, check out the North House Folk School, where they teach traditional Northern crafts. You can take classes in everything from Scandinavian cuisine or Adirondack chair-building to beading, cheesemaking, birchbark canoe building, or haberdashery.

A student makes his own birchwood Nordic skis at the North House Folk School. The list of classes offered is staggering. There’s a real satisfaction in crafting your own snowshoes and then using them. Photos courtesy North House Folk School. Snowboarding with an ocean view? No, it’s Lake Superior, the world’s largest freshwater lake (by surface area), as viewed from a slope at the Lutsen Ski Resort. Stephan Hoglund Photography. When visiting a new area, I usually save my flightseeing for last. After exploring the area at ground level, I know what to look for from the air. Be aware that Canada is only 20 nm north of Grand Marais and that the huge Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is marked as Prohibited Areas P-204, P-205, and P-206 where flights below 4,000 feet MSL are prohibited. Happily, you may fly at any altitude within a corridor over the Gunflint Trail. The Northwoods are beautiful year-round, but as winter sets in, frozen water in every form turns this corner of the Gitchee Gumee into a

fairytale land of wonder.
