Smoky Mountain Adventure – Suches, GA
October 19 - October 22
Join SWT Aviation and CubCrafters for the 4th Annual Smoky Mountain Adventure during prime “leaf-looking” season. We’ll base our Adventure out of the High Valley Resort in Suches, GA (GA87), the highest elevation, private grass airstrip in Georgia.
Daily fly-outs to area grass strips throughout the Smokies; backcountry flying, landing on everything from well-manicured strips to hayfields. And this year, we have a very special outing planned! Bill Elliott, professional race car driver (currently retired), grew up just down the road from the home of Smoky Mountain Adventure, Dawsonville, GA. He has an airstrip just outside of town, and there just happens to be a motorsports park right around the corner. We plan to fly into Elliott Field, have some friendly competition on the karting track, a little lunch and then fly around the mountains some more. How’s THAT sound for an Adventure?!?!
For those who would rather spend the day on the ground, there are some wonderful local wineries you can tour, do some hiking on well-renowned trails in the area, or…. just sit back and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.
After everybody comes back to base on Friday & Saturday, we’ll have some more friendly competition in STOL and flour bombing…. oh yea, and how about some skeet shooting! (remember to bring your shotgun & skeet)
In the evenings, sit around the campfire, enjoy the cool mountain air and just do some “plane” talking.
