PROP PITCH PERFECT... PROP PITCH PERFECT...
Jim Ohara was a county commissioner for 12 years in Montana & a republican candidate for governor. He's one of fastest learners we've ever seen, a wicked smart aviation decision maker, AND he's a detail guy. Great week!

"RUBBER SIDE DOWN..." "RUBBER SIDE DOWN..."
But, what if there's no rubber side???Usually, when a client calls & says their trike blew over - I'm already convinced they probably crashed it & still in denial. In this case though, Bernie was honest. The wind off the water tossed his bird. But we send him a new airframe & he'll be back in the sky in about a week.

FINAL FASTENING... FINAL FASTENING...
Shipping a basic but solid trike off to the east coast for John where he's going to do some customizing. Looking forward to seeing the results!

THE GUSTAVS HAVE ARRIVED THE GUSTAVS HAVE ARRIVED
Ivan & I played football together in college before real life started... So its nice these days to get that one day per year to see him & his fam before the coaching season begins. This is Vance & Oni (Oh-Ny). This was also before the grasshopper roundup from the pool & subsequent grasshopper soup project...

PHILIP IN THE FRONT SEAT PHILIP IN THE FRONT SEAT
Stefan & Philip called & asked if we could do a custom week of father/son flying adventures. DONE! Really fun to watch them interact & argue about techy stuff I don't understand - oh, and they also speak Dutch most of the time so maybe that has something to do with it! Regardless of what language they speak, they are both excellent students of the sky. Great week.

STEFAN IN THE ZONE STEFAN IN THE ZONE
Stefan is a pilot from South Africa, so I'm hoping that by giving him a 200 mile tour of the Spokane & Coeur d Alene area - I will get a reciprocal tour of the Cape Town area next year! This was part of a week long father/son flying adventure we customized for them. Great week - perfect weather.

JONES DELIVERY JONES DELIVERY
Hi Denny - well so far the trike is working out great for as old as it is, I have no complaints. I can say that I like the ixess15 wing a lot better than the kiss13' but don't get me wrong I think that anything that AC makes is good. I hope one to have a Tanarg lol. I would like to come out on vac next spring and do some flying with you guys, I would love to fly the desert.

TESTIMONIAL: Chuck (Houston, TX) TESTIMONIAL: Chuck (Houston, TX)
What a thrill! I find it amazing to think I went from having no flying experience and a healthy dose of fear to demonstrating I can pre-flight, communicate, taxi, take off, fly a reasonable pattern, and land (or very close to - one more lesson and I would have done it) a trike after 6 lessons. It is a credit to each of your respective skill and experience as both pilot and instructor. I found it especially valuable getting instruction from each of you in turn, using two different aircraft. You both offer unique insight and approaches that enriched the experience. Each aircraft provided a perspective to help guide selection in my own. Five days ago, I had no idea what questions to even ask. Now I have a laundry list of features and gear. It was a challenge but I loved every minute of it. Adventure fulfilled! Thanks again, Chuck

Venison Venison
With the cost of shipping increasing & an allergy to the time required for my cargo to get through the Panama Canal & steam up to LA, i sometimes prefer to just meet my containers in Houston. So, while making the run to retrieve two Tanargs, i had a small issue with some Texas wildlife. As a result, my grill, bumper, quarter panel, headlight & radiator was being held on by a series of ratchets straps & duct tape for about a month. This was partially because of hitting a deer at 92mph outside Austin and partially because it required a saws-all the remove said deer... Since there is little chance of me slowing down, reinforcing the truck seemed to be the next best solution. Done. Den - 509.990.5060 Iphone Email

I am a lucky guy for many reasons, but here are two: 1) I am retired, and 2), I just happen to live within 30 miles of Kemmeries Aviation! I downloaded the "All About Trikes" video yesterday and can verify that the app is wonderful. The included videos very cool, but also concise, informational and instructional. The app truly meets and exceeds its goal of providing a comprehensive insight to the world of sport flying. I can't wait to be a part of this culture!

Den, What a journey this has been. I thank you and your 'crew' for making this an experience of a lifetime. Coming from a professional detail oriented background, I appreciate your attention to detail and calm voice despite my attempts to make a 'lawn dart' out of your airplane. Looking forward to the next phase of the process to be able to share the experience with others. Animo et Fide Rosie

Harold Wickham     From: No Where
Thanks so much... Denny put me in Northwing Maverick at 3k less than the original asking price, provided me with a plethora of information, as well quality flying experience at Lake Plesant Airport. He also gave me the connections for pilots in my own community (Las Vegas). Denny Reed has helped me to create a new passion ( obsession) in my life. Forever grateful...

Chris Carpenter     From: No Where
Thanks Denny for all of your help! I ordered some parts from Denny and had him ship them to me in Mexico. They got stuck in customs and needed all sorts of extra paperwork to release them to me. Denny went the extra miles and faxed off all of the different papers they wanted. The parts arrived at my house here in Mexico. Highly Recommended!!!

Dave     From: No Where
Wow. I have a serious dilemma. What we did today was the experience I think I've always been looking for but just ended up following the path to my Mooney. Through compromise, I simply must have both. One plane in my hangar has always looked a little boring. Thanks Denny & congrats on the other 'project'.

AIR CREATION TANARG #6 DELIVERED!     From: No Where
Royce took delivery of his brand new 2011 Air Creation Tanarg 912-S-ES with Bionix wing at the Coeur d'Alene Airshow last Saturday. The aircraft was delivered 'turn-key' and he flew it home. What a beautiful airplane! Winds were 17mph & thermals were booming at 87 degrees so i was interested to see what he thought about his flight home... He said, "This thing flew like it was on rails."

Max Hartshorne, Editor GoNOMAD.com     From: South Deerfield, MA
Flying with Denny was the highlight of my trip to Spokane! It was like taking a trip on the back of a fast motorcycle, but we were up in the air! It was such a rush, hard to describe but it made me want to do it again. Denny is so lucky to be able to fly like a bird on that wonderful machine!

Nathan White     From: Polson, Montana
I just recently spent a few days visiting and finishing up my trike training at Backcountry Aerosports. Denny is an outstanding instructor/ host and has a top notch facility/ operation. He is very professional and serious about flying, but makes it totally fun and painless. He even helped me do some repairs on my trike. And the scenery is spectacular! If anyone is looking for for a great place to train or just a fun place to hang out and fly, I HIGHLY recommend Denny and Backcountry Aerosports!

Anonymous     From: Las Vegas, NV
As a newbie searching for the best equipment available & simply forced to trust someone to help me navigate this sport, I'm extremely thankful I ended up working with Denny. I was prepared to spend the capital necessary to have the best equipment & instruction on my terms & schedule. Everything about Denny was 'expedition quality' (as he said it would be). Denny's prices were honestly higher than other operations but since being in the sport now for 7 months, I have learned to why... I completely appreciate his services and experience as absolutely priceless. He has answered his phone 24/7 for me. I did my research on other operations & aicraft for over a year while Denny told me outright that I'd get exactly what I paid for in this sport. I got the best. See you all in the sky!!!

Well, I couldn't sit here and not write something great having been on a flight with you. You have grabbed onto a fantastic idea and ran with it. Look where it got you. I am proud to call myself your cousin. If you are eve in the DFW area, I am sure people here would love the opportunity to soar with the birds, and I don't know of any local flying clubs that feature ultralights. Let's work something out!

Well folks...I can say that I have known Mr. Reed for some time now. There is not a person I would rather go up in the air with...or underground or...anyway. I appreciate the awesome flights that you took my wife and I on. I cannot think of a better experience that we've had over the last year. I encourage any of you that have not tried this awesome rush yet, consider doing so soon. Whether you want a quiet flight, a look at the wildlife, or just to mess around, it is an incredible ride. My wife still talks about it. And if you're worried about safety...Denny Reed is the guy to take you up (and back down on all three wheels.) Hats off to you Denny and please keep doing your thing.

Dale Norton     From: Priest River, ID
Fantastic experience. Denny was great. The explanations were easy to follow and controlling the plane was very easy.

Stacey Schock     From: Kirkland, WA
Denny, I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity to go for a flight this weekend. I’ve wanted to go up for a while, if I had only known ….. How do I put that into words? I wish people could feel what I feel when I tell them about my adventure… amazing, tranquil, addicting are some words that come to mind but still don’t do the trick. Rather than listening to me, I would tell everyone to go and find out for themselves! My confidence in your ability and your explanations prior to and during the flight squashed any chance of nerves interfering. Not a care in the world, I was flying! It’s a bird… It’s a plane… No…it was Stacey! I’m ready for more. Love the property too, beautiful perch.

Put it is words? Are you kidding!? This is the greatest thing we have ever experienced together. You are all very kind people. Hey will those heated suits work for skiing???? Thanks guys, one of the best ways to spend a day I in Spokane that I can think of...

I knew the weather would be bad but I took Denny's advice & took his first class that introduced me to the equipment & sport. I'm thoroughly impressed. I'm a commercial pilot and have also flown with another trike instructor in this area and there is no comparison. The Backcountry guys are straight forward & doing it right.

"It was heaven! ...relaxing and enjoyable." "I can understand why my husband is so excited to do this."

Yeah, that was really fun.

Kenneth Reese-Chavez     From: Warrenton, OR
I have enjoyed my training with Denny Reed. He has been a good friend to me as well as a great instructor. He makes flying fun, but he is very safety conscience as well.

Curt Archer     From: Spokane Engineers Forum
Thanks for your talk & the slide show. Looked like the folks at the engineer's forum really enjoyed them.

Happy New Year! I know it's a little late... Just a note of "Thanks" for the opportunity to reach some new personal heights. While going through my annual pictures and things I've done. learning to fly was a great event. Having gone through 2 years of rehab, I discovered that I need to do some fun & exciting things. your time and patience, I must say, is deeply appreciated. I've been working hard in the physical therapy and getting good strength and range in my arms. I hope all is well with you. Thanks again, and I hope to see you this spring.

Thank you for taking us on an ultralight flight! We had so much fun learning about your amazing aircraft and seeing the world from high above the trees! It was the highlight of the retreat! You are very generous with your time and we thank you!

Lyn Darrington     From: The Gallatin Group - Boise, ID
Thank you so much for the incredible flying experience in Oregon. It was so kind and gracious of you to include me and I really loved it! It was like 'floating' - sort of... Please allow me to return the favor next time you're in town. Thanks again for a memorable morning.

Is a double roll possible?

Even as a paramotor pilot, this was one of the best flights of my life. Perfect weather, perfect scenery & great instructor.

Mary O.     From: Spokane, WA
Hi Denny! I just wanted to thank you for the awesome flight yesterday. I told my class that I went flying this weekend, I told them it was like I was Harry Potter flying on a broomstick. They were very impressed, and I showed them pictures of your planes on your web site. I appreciate you letting my dogs roam your property too. A wonderful evening and I hope we can fly and play more in the future! :) Some people play on mountains, some play in water, but if you really want to play with the BIG DOGS you need to come play in the air. Watch out geese there is a new king of the sky! THANKS DENNY! A magical evening thanks to you.

George Duey Jr.     From: Spokane, WA
Very exhilerating... My favorite part was the gliding without the engine!

Everett Boleneus     From: N. of Davenport, Washington
I,m 84 years old and have flown with Denny Reed over my own property and that of many others, what a thrill to come up over the hills and see the wild life down below you, I never knew there was so much wildlife on my own property. I have a breathing problem, and the air is so clean up there . Have been up twice and ready to go again.

Steve Hancock     From: No Where
As a Cessna driver, I didn't know what fun flying was until I joined the Reeds on Labor Day 2003 for a flight over Lake Roosevelt in a trike. I signed up for lessons and now enjoy flying my own trike. The Backcountry gang is one very nice (and very fun) group of people to fly with.

Jay Tortorelli     From: Spokane, WA
I just can't get enough of it!!! I have been up a few times with Denny. It is just awesome. It is a great activity if you have friends or family visiting. I have brought friends up and they are hooked! I have taken my wife with me, and she wants a trike of her own.
Denny's knowledge and detail to safety is astounding. YOU JUST HAVE TO GIVE IT A TRY!!!
