Go Flying Australia Podcast 025 – Aussie Bush Pilot conquers the High Sierra in Nevada

Summary: Interview with an Australian Bush pilot Tim Howes who has recently travelled to Nevada to attend the High Sierra Fly-inn.  This is a fly-inn where bush pilots get together to conquer back country strips which reach as high as 12,000 feet above MSL.  The aircraft used to get into these strips are nothing short of remarkable as they are often highly modified with huge bush wheels, improved landing gear, STOL kits and upgraded engines.
