Idaho Looks Great.... Inverted!
Master Aerobatic Instructor and spin training expert Rich
Stowell recently announced plans to base from Cascade Airport (U70)
starting this summer. Located 35 miles south of McCall, Idaho, the
setting is reminiscent of the practice area east of Santa Paula
Airport (SZP) where Stowell has spent most of his time since
According to Stowell, "My wife and I fell in love with Idaho
during an aviation-related trip in 2002."
He added that, "We've spent the last few years building a house,
procuring a Super Decathlon, and securing a hangar. Everything is
now in place."
When asked how this affects his twenty-two-year relationship
with CP Aviation, he said, "I'm not leaving CP Aviation; I'm just
branching out to a summer location. CP Aviation is home when I'm in
California." As has always been the case, CP Aviation maintains
several instructors on staff who are qualified to teach Stowell's
EMT Program, including the country's first (and only) female Master
Aerobatic Instructor, Judy Phelps.
