This time on EAA’s The Green Dot , we welcomed John Young, co-founder of the ArkanSTOL Ozark Backwoods Challenge, an event that put a unique twist on traditional STOL flying. Located in Ozark, Arkansas, tucked away in a valley associated with rolling mountains and roaring rivers, is where competitors are faced with landing upon four different runways, reversing direction, and taking off again for the best time. John sat down (virtually, that is) to talk about the challenge and what’s in store for this year’s event.
