Project Idaho


I see almost no one flying in this beautiful state with plenty of bush flying opportunities. Because of this I am launching a bush flying series in the IFC where there will be often group flights through the Idaho backcountry so that we can get some more love to this great state.

Here are some cool locations

Redfish lake area


Grandjean summit

Boise ridge

McCall

All pictures are mine except for McCall and the picture up top sources are below.

KBOI-KSUN C750
2U7-1ID9
KSUN-2U7

All these routes can be switched opposite, there are a ton of bush strips in Idaho that you can go to several along the salmon river, have a good time with flying here!

Quite remarkable pictures! What airports can I utilize to find these locations in Infinite Flight? Any recommended route I should take? Anything I should know before exploring Idaho?


Can’t wait to see some fun events in Idaho! Feel free to check out the Events Tutorial if you have any questions

And before exploring Idaho remember that a lot of the backcountry strips are high and density altitude can reach up to 10,000ft in the summer.

Hello, Juan! Thanks for sharing your beautiful state with us and sorry we’re late to provide some constructive feedback. That said, this is posted in #live and we’re on an Infinite Flight forum. I think I understand your objective, but the post itself doesn’t really tie to anything Infinite Flight or aviation.

Could you expand a bit further on your topic so it relates to Infinite Flight. What airports should we explore in Idaho? Any scenic flight plans you can share? Notable bush flying spots? Sand bars?

We’ll allow this to stay open pending the above recommendations, as it currently reads like a postcard vs a way to encourage hometown engagement. Thanks!
