Survival School

Are you traveling abroad?  Are you a backpacker or an avid adventurer?  Are you a pilot? Or are you concerned about the geopolitical climate and the potential outcome of that?  If you answered yes to any of these questions then our Survival School is an absolute must for you.  Why?  So that you can protect yourself and loved ones in the event that things don’t turn out as planned.  (We also teach urban survival and how to survive in hostile environments.)

When you learn how to survive in the Alaska bush you can survive anywhere in the world, period!  Come learn from our instructors who have all spent many years in the Alaska Bush under some of the harshest condition on planet earth.  (e.g. Sleeping on the ground, 50 miles north of the Arctic Circle, at -65° F. with nothing but a tarp over their sleeping bags!).  Some of our instructors are former military and/or former law enforcement with extensive experience working and traveling in hostile theaters.   Contact us for further information regarding these life saving learning experiences.  

In Alaska and other places that I have been in the world I have seen where people needlessly die or suffer immeasurably due to a lack of survival gear and lack of basic survival skill sets. You can have all of the survival gear and equipment that you can possibly carry but if you do not know how to use it then you are just packing around a lot of good stuff for nothing.


And always remember this:  If you are prepared and don’t need to use it then it will cost you nothing.  If you are unprepared and need to be, it will probably cost you your life and the lives of your friends or loved ones.  Read that again and let it sink in! ALWAYS be trained, be prepared, and be ready!

“Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.”  General George S. Patton

The Fine Print:

  • Number of Students We can Accommodate: Four per class

  • Length of Training: Seven and 14 day courses are available (not counting your arrival and departure dates)

  • Dates Available:  Year around (summer and winter survival training)

  • Lodging--Arrival/Departure:  A one night stay at your arrival and departure destination in Fairbanks is included in the cost.  We will make the reservations for you at a nice hotel.

  • Lodging During Your Survival Training:  We furnish a semi primitive remote fly in tent camp for the main part of the training, and we fly the participant to the camp in our Super Cub. Participants will stay in the backpack tents that they bring with them. All training will take place at this camp.  For the last two days of the seven day course, and for the last four days of the 14 day course, each participant will be required to live unsupported out of his Bug Out Bag (BOB) for those days.  Our instructors will be closely monitoring you for signs of extreme fatigue, dehydration, and being pre-hypothermia.  If we find any participant presenting any of these or other signs that show us that you are in danger we will take appropriate measures.  (Along with our airplane there is a medic present during the training).  In other words we will do everything in our power to keep you safe!
