Made the trip I've been trying to make before starting the 701 build. It was a long road but the pay off was worth all the work. Took off from home airport PAOT, Kotzebue AK, to PAIK Kiana, picking up the Kobuk River and following it to the great sand dunes. the most northern desert in the world. Was one of the most fantastic trips I've made in the 701. Here are some pictures. ill add more pics later
The dunes are vast! We spent the afternoon just exploring in perfect weather 70 deg F. If your in this region the dunes are a must see. We saw caribou, moose, bears, and some wolf on the way to and from the dunes.
The 701 preforms very well in the sand, takeoff was unbelievably easy. Back pressure on the stick and the nose wheel never digs in.
