DROP OFF

A Piper Super Cub launches above the tree line after dropping you off with the last of the supplies you and your party will have on this extended trip into the wilderness.  The pilot is scheduled to return in two weeks, weather permitting. That airplane is your life line, and in many cases the pilot may be the only person who knows exactly where you were dropped off.   In most of Alaska, this is the only way in or out of the vast secluded wild.  Aviation provides a critical link in the chain that supplies the ability to explore far beyond where you could go by foot.
