Jackie & Tobias Burch

Backcountry Flying

Jackie and Tobias introduced us to the world of backcountry piloting. They built their Carbon Cub EX-2 and use it to fly out to beautiful locations and meet up with their fellow pilot friends. They even met up with fellow Ambassador and vanlifer, Jeremiah in the desert for a Mountain House dinner on their way to join us at GoPro Mountain Games 2021! Whether they're in the U.S. working on their hangar or in Switzerland, where Tobias is originally from, we know they're up to something fun!
