  • :) Since many people winter in Florida, I just wanted to throw a SHOUT OUT to any pilots looking for a fun camping and get together happening at my place on Feb. 8th. For more details go to Hope to see you next weekend.

  • Lynn, this won't be seen unless people actively visit this section of the knowledge base. A better way to get eyes on your fly-in would be to sign in and post it as an event.

  • I understand in Montana it is legal to land on public roads. What is status on other western states?

  • That is a great question, and I don't know the answer. There was a huge forum topic on it many years ago, but I would post in the forum asking the same question. When we get the answer there, we can commit it here to the Knowledge Base.

    Thanks. -Z

  • I'll see if I can get any official position statements from the various highway patrols and post replies there.

  • That would be an excellent thing to have in a data base. From what I recall, it varies from state to state, and can even vary from county to county. Utah just added their rules for landing on's a long, convoluted process to show a no one would probably endure unfortunately, which is probably their intended result.

  • yes I see that - basically possible for "essential service" - ie medivac etc

    Oregon has legislation that allows for rule making but as of now there are no rules - which is likely next best to having Montana's law.

    No response from other states - will post if I get anything - especially interested in NV & AZ.

    And if needed there is always that oil temperature problem that need to be checked :)

    Flew to the Richtersveld this past weekend, hel of a long flight (12hours) but worthwhile, great fishing, great scenery

  • I just signed up. This looks like a good site. I have a lot of back country time in Oregon and Idaho, flying a B model Cessna 182l (1959) and 180 HP Cessna 170 B. I have been out of flying for some years and am looking to get back in. I am looking for a good Model A through D Cessna 182. I am also considering Maul, M4, M5 M6 or M7. I love Cessna 180s but most good ones are just to costly. I am looking forward to getting to know some of you. I probably already do as I as a fixture in this world before.

  • Few people will read this as you've entered it as a comment on a specific section in the knowledge base. I suggest introducing yourself in the the discussion forum. Welcome.
