Pleasant Valley, Young 24AZ

October 12-14

We need to mount our new windsock pole, bring shovels and picks! 


For all you backcountry adventurers, we’ll have weekend fly-ins this fall with a purpose! We made such great strides over the last few years re-opening our backcountry to aviation, and had lots of fun and friendship in the process! Each of these airstrips needs a little TLC to keep them in safe condition for all, and with a little effort from all, this TLC is made light work. There are many unsung heroes out there that have taken on regular maintenance of some of our more remote airstrips, for example Red Creek, and our thanks go out to those folks who have unselfishly given of themselves to keep these strips groomed for all of us. So take a look at the schedule Tommy has put together for this fall, join us at one of the TLC weekends this fall.



Join fellow pilots and their families in the cool pines of Young Arizona (24AZ), AKA Pleasant Valley. The airstrip is 3400' graded dirt, and accommodates most GA aircraft. Young and Pleasant Valley provide very special and beautiful surroundings. The locals help provide  ground transportation to and from town for the many activities available in Historic Young, meals and hotel stays. 

For transportation to Young from the airstrip, call Vern and Kathy (928-462-3510)

As always, please check weather for your trip, and make the your decision to fly on your skill level, equipment, and conditions along the route and destination. Winds can be hazardous in the backcountry!
