Default Fly Utah UDOT Program

My new home state has a program for pilots and aviation enthusiasts. Visit all 45 public use airports, 3 museums and get an award. You need to complete the program within 3 years. You have to register before starting no paper booklet needed all locations saved electronically. https://www.udot.utah.gov/public/aer...981442021:::::

My leather jacket from Virginia is getting worn so I need a new one soon

Default Washington

The state of Washington has a similar program. There's about 110 participating public use airports. Each airport has a stamp. The state printed books that look something like a passport book. You have to go to each airport and use the stamp to stamp your book.

It's a lot of fun, but very time consuming. They publish where the stamps are but it is not always easy to find it.

You can see that there are several jacket winners by now.

Why do they all look retired?

At least one is still working, but he has an aerial survey business and has the opportunity to stop at a lot of airports in the state.

Bruce I already removed passenger seat. Waiting for weather to stabilize, them zooming your way on a weekend. Those winters in North East is a joke comparing to Utah and Wyoming

Received a job offer Keith I could not refuse. Quartered at the airport (33U) so pack your 6A, take your chef and head my way. I have a spare room and a car for you to explore the wilderness

Default Skinwalker Ranch

Vlad,

Exists a Ranch in NE Utah dubbed the Skinwalker Ranch not too far from you. Google it. Intriguing to say the least. Pretty sure it’s not on the UDOT list, but would make for a beautiful fly over.....at least during the day...yikes!

Check out the book “The Hunt for the Skinwalker”
Download on Audible too. Very interesting and freaky.

Found out about it on FB when a couple fat tire cub drivers were talking about asking permission to the current landowner about landing and camping for a weekend. Have at it!!

Heard about it from a coworker Ed. He is fascinated with stuff like this. He showed me the exact location couple months ago we drove by. I will investigate further and report
