Airstrip Map

The UBCP Airstrip Map is your gateway to Utah's backcountry airstrips. We've spent countless hours compiling data on the vast network of airstrips in Utah's backcountry and have put it all in one convenient, easy to access place.

The Airstrip Map (and related Airstrip List) make it easy to find your next destination. Sort by runway length, elevation, runway surface, and more. We'll show you which strips are open to the public, which strips are privately owned, and which strips we recommend avoiding.

Condition Reports

Condition Reports enable you to get the latest information about Utah's airstrips, straight from the mouths of fellow backcountry pilots.

See reports and photos submitted by other pilots detailing the condition and safety of all of Utah's backcountry strips. If you're planning a trip to Utah's backcountry, recent condition reports can be a crucial component to your flight plan.

FlightShare

FlightShare allows you to split time with other pilots visiting the backcountry. If you're flying out and have an open seat, you can advertise it by posting a FlightShare.

If you're looking to gain some experience flying in the backcountry and are willing to split costs, you can find pilots with available seats using FlightShare.
