“A gathering of like-minded individuals from across the globe”

Kevin Quinn  |  Founder



The High Sierra Fly-in was created as a celebration of backcountry aviation, at a gathering of like minded individuals. This year marks its ten year anniversary and we could not be more excited. STOL Drag is growing into a hot new aviation sport and general aviation is thriving.

This year (2019), STOL Drag will be debuting itself to the world at the Reno Air Races. That’s a very big deal and we are taking it very seriously.

We sincerely hope that at some point you can come to the desert and join us. There is just no place like "Dead Cow," the dry lakebed that is home to the High Sierra Fly-in
