About Field Morey and Morey's West Coast Adventures
In 1966, two Wisconsin flight students anxious to complete their IFR training in the most expeditious manner came to Field Morey and asked if they could train together. Field, a CFII, put a program together and the three of them were off to see the USA in a Cessna 172. Ten days later, the flying adventure and two instrument ratings were completed. Morey's West Coast Adventures was born.
Since that first trip, over 300 Adventures have been successfully completed. A few years ago, Field's love of the mountain flying became too great to remain in Wisconsin. He moved to the West Coast where he bases his Alaska and Wilderness Adventures in the summer and Rocky Mountain Adventures in the winter. He still uses the same concept of flight time in weather whenever possible, and the location of Medford, Oregon has proven to be a natural home base for his West Coast Instrument Adventure flights.
The addition of Garmin G1000 instrumentation added a new element of sophistication to the trip. This dynamic equipment allows flight students to fly using the latest in general aviation avionics technology while simplifying departure, approach and enroute procedures. The use of "all-glass" Cessna Turbo 182 Skylane aircraft is yet another reason to join over 700 pilots who exclaim that being on a West Coast Adventure is the flying experience of a lifetime!
Field is a Designated Pilot Examiner for Southern Oregon, a position he held for many years while operating his own airport and flight school in the Midwest. In
fact if you search for Morey Field (C29) in Middleton, Wisconsin you will see the legacy he left behind.
