3rd Annual Lone Pine Back Country Fly-in and Tail Dragger Jamboree 3757
3rd Annual Lone Pine Back Country Fly-in and Tail Dragger Jamboree
Fly into the beautiful Lone Pine, CA airport (O26) right underneath Mount Whitney for the 3rd annual weekend of aviation fellowship, local fly-outs, and fun. Come see a different side of California—one that is less connected to the Pacific Coast and more connected culturally and geographically to the interior American West.

This backcountry flying-focused weekend is centered around camaraderie, flying, and fun. Register to help us build the back-country fly-outs itinerary and help yourself keep apprised of event updates.

Official events and arrivals start Friday. On Friday afternoon there will be informal fly-outs and Saturday there will be formal fly-outs led by locals to desert and Sierra mountain strips. Learn about the local back-country scene and experience the raw beauty, unique geography, and union of the high Sierras and Death Valley. The fly-outs will be tailored to aircraft and pilot abilities with a thorough mandatory mass pre-flight briefing that we be conducted Friday evening and a pre-flight huddle on Saturday morning with each group.
Sunday brunch will be a fly-in group meal at the famous Panamint Springs Resort in Death Valley National Park. https://www.panamintsprings.com

*Thurs arrivals welcome and camping permitted, although no on-site support / events.*

Friday and Saturday night dinner will feature local food trucks on the ramp!

Camping is available on-site with an on airport hotel option available as well. The Best Western in Lone Pine is right on the field and is a great option.. Contact the Best Western directly to secure a room, and mention that you are attending the fly-in. Lone Pine Best Western The Dow Villa Hotel is offering rooms for the fly-in as well. This historic hotel features great views of the Sierra and is located close by in downtown Lone Pine https://dowvillamotel.com/
