Backcountry Connection is the result of a unexpected career change! BCC, Inc. owned and operated by Wup Winn, a Native of Pendleton, Or, raised with strong roots in his heritage, under the influence of an auto body paint and repair shop of his Dads, and ties to various other horsepower and adrenaline infused activites. Holding an Associate’s degree in Automotive and Diesel Mechanics, a few years spent under the hoods of various vehicles, a few more years working for Les Schwab Tire Centers learning all about tires and the like, eventually moving to Joseph Oregon.
The move to Joseph provided an introduction to a world-wide network of aviation, primarily Back-Country, Bush-type, General Aviation. Wup was manager of both sales and production for 14 years at Alaskan Bushwheel Inc. This of course deepened the need for his private pilot’s license, having now accumulated almost 1000 hours in tail-dragger aircraft, his primary emphasis in the Maule and working closely with other manufacturers of STOL aircraft and FAA PMA’d parts suppliers and is ready to put that experience to work for you.
With change of career eminent, the passion of aviation in his blood and the world at his fingertips, BCC, Inc. was the next step forward.
