The Utah Backcountry Pilots Association has its roots founded in the late 1990’s by a group of backcountry pilots wondering how they could help preserve the many airstrips found in Utah. Since then, through many runway work gatherings, meetings with the BLM and various other organizations, and continuing in the spirit of being ambassadors to backcountry aviation, the UBCP has maintained a solid track record of preserving and reviving some of the great places in Utah reachable only by airplane.
Times have changed since we were formed, and as we continue in our goals of Preserving Airstrips, Enhancing Safety, and Preserving the Environment, we’re looking for ways to better accomplish our mission, while providing our members the resources necessary to not only enjoy the backcountry safely, but to help maintain and enhance it.
That’s why we’re looking for a few good men and women who have some ideas as to how we can increase the success in our mission. From a new website, to more communications from our Board of Directors, more fly-ins and other social events, and the many other ideas you may have…we’d love to hear from you!
Saturday, November 25th, at 12:00, the UBCP
will be hosting an informal get-together at the Skypark Airport FBO (KBTF), where we’d love to brainstorm the future of the UBCP
, and how we can make this happen together. If you’re willing and able to make this event, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
or calling/texting 928-710-2615
. Lunch will be provided.
On behalf of the UBCP, we would like to thank you for your continued support, and look forward to an exciting future of the Utah Backcountry.
