Now I fly a Cessna 210 that is one thirsty ole gal. We burn around 17 gallons an hour in cruise, and on climb out, with the pedal to the metal, we burn over 22 gph. Hence, when I am often interviewed I make sure I use my patented phrase, "EcoFlight is not against oil and gas drilling but we feel very strongly that it CAN and MUST be done properly and there are places that it just should not be done".
Latest Flight Mission
Our flight took us over two proposed mines in the Cabinet Mountains, the Cabinet Wilderness Area, and around to view the Scotchman Peaks, which are proposed for a wilderness designation. We crossed the Kootenay River to tour the Yaak Mountain watershed, an area where Y2Y and its partners - the Yaak Valley Forest Council, InRoads Consulting, Defenders of Wildlife, Western Transportation Institute and Vital Ground are taking a number of science-based approaches to protect private and public lands for wildlife habitat connectivity.
