Backcountry Flying

To be able to land “anywhere”, in ridiculously small spaces, with maximum safety, at very low speeds, with an airplane that enables you to overcome the most demanding rough terrains, cannot be only reduced to a number of technical aspects. Because there is simply nothing more emotional and engaging than leaving your daily routine, finally flying to the mountains, reaching that remote valley, to then land beside a twisty river. You jump out of the plane, starting to breathe deeply, after that incredible landing. What a wonderful place, all around you... Instead of the smog and the noise of the city, you now scent pine trees flagrance while the fresh and clean air, simply floods your lungs. You arrived into an unique place, nobody is around you and the only sound is now coming by the smooth flow of that river. You might as well spend a couple of nights there, sleeping inside your own airplane… Why not?
To live this kind of freedom and to offer this kind of performances, represent our vision and what we mean for "Backcountry flying”…

Are you ready to enjoy your next adventure?

It took time to fine tune our Norden equipped with the EP 917Ti...but it was worth it : "350 kg" of static thrust or if you prefer "771 lbs". Actually it is even more if we consider the extra drag offered by the large 29" bushwheels on the ground. We tested many props, but this new Carbon 5 blade one, made by E-Props, offered the best results (waiting now for their next constant speed prop coming in Spring). Finally the plane can be delivered to his proud owner. ... See MoreSee Less
