¿What is bushflying?
aircraft operations carried out in the bush. Bush flying involves operations in rough terrain where there are often no prepared landing strips or runways, frequently necessitating that bush planes be equipped with abnormally large tires, floats or skis.
This term bush has been used since the 19th century to describe remote wilderness area beyond clearings and settlements, bush flying denotes flight operations carried out in such remote regions.
Bush flying is the primary method of access across Northern Canada, Alaska,and the Australian Outback.
In Canada, the first real use of bush flying was for exploration and development, while in Alaska, transportation was the main purpose. Later, bush flying became important during rescue operations. Bush pilots are well needed in rescues and are very important for many different things.
Bush flying involves operations in rough terrain, necessitating bush planes to be equipped with tundra tires, floats, or skis. A bush plane should have good short take-off and landing capabilities. A typical bush plane will have wings on top of its fuselage to ensure that they do not make contact with any overgrowth in the landing area. They will normally have conventional “tail-dragger” landing gear as it has a greater aeronautic ability than tricycle landing gear, and is more suited to rough surfaces. The increased upward angle of the taildragger configuration gives the propeller more clearance from the ground allowing it to avoid striking large rocks, logs and other debris that might cause damage. However tricycle gear (“nose wheel”) bush-planes are capable of landing almost anywhere a taildragger can, provided it is equipped with suitable oversize high flotation tires and is correctly loaded.
