About Richard Benson
Richard purchased his first plane, a 1969 Cessna 182, primarily for instrument training, logging 750 hours, including several adventures into British Columbia and as far south as Loreto in Baja. His second plane was a 1976 Cessna T-210, allowing him to top the clouds on 80% of his flights. He flew ‘EK’ for 14 years, logging 1400 hours. In 1989, his love affair with the Frank Church Wilderness in Idaho was born and he has now logged 3,000+ hours as he enjoys his third aircraft, a 1964 Cessna 182; a more suitable plane for the grass and gravel strips of Oregon, Idaho, & BC that he enjoys so much!
