We are experienced in off-field operations, tailwheel, formation, upset recovery and basic aerobatics. Our main priorities are safety and having fun. Our favorite locations to explore are in the backcountry. Many of these locations don't have a runway in sight.

The Flying Cowboys are aviation advocates that serve the local community while being mindful of the environment. We regularly volunteer as air support for things such as search and rescue or finding lost cattle for local ranchers.

We make every effort to keep our desserts and mountains clean. We often use the hashtag #HeavierOut on social media. Generally speaking, we want our planes to be as light as possible. However, after visiting the backcountry our planes tend to be several hundred pounds heavier. This is because we load up our planes with any trash we find. Hence the hashtag #HeavierOut.

There's a very concerning shortage of pilots. We need enthusiasts like you to join any aviation community. Far too many people have not experienced the freedom and joy found only with private licenses.
