RESPECTING OUR AGREEMENTS

As a reminder wanted to reiterate the agreement that we have with the land owners of Fremont Island.  Since the inception of our agreement, we have agreed to only utilize the two established airstrips on the island, those being the upper “ridge” strip, and the lower “northern” strip.  Lately, we have noticed a few additional airstrips have been created on the island, to the point where construction cones and barricades have been placed to identify these additional strips.  In the spirit of keeping Fremont Island open for the future, we ask that those of us who enjoy the access given to us at Fremont Island only use the two established strips originally agreed to, and that those who have placed construction cones and markers on the island please remove them before we discard them.

If anyone has any questions regarding the use of Fremont Island, please contact the UBCP.

Update:  As of today, we have been made aware that the cones and construction barricades used to mark these illegal airstrips have been removed.  In order to help rehabilitate the land destroyed in the creation of these illegal airstrips, and to maintain our great working relationship with the land owners, please utilize the two established airstrips on the island.

UTAH BACK COUNTRY PILOTS ASSOCIATION

We hope to promote flying in Utah, and we welcome you to our state. We recognize the inherent hazards and risk involved in back country flying and will strive to minimize this by disseminating information on airstrip conditions, and offering a conduit where which to share experiences gained. This website is one aspect of our effort. We believe that a significant potential exists in our state to develop a handful of remote landing fields and we hope you’ll come fly with us and join the effort.
