Eagle Roost Airpark (27AZ) Aguila, AZ. Take a glorious flight and go 25 miles west of Wickenburg to the furthest northwest corner of Maricopa County. There you will find Eagle Roost Airpark, (27AZ), in the Valley of the Eagle. At an elevation of 2206 feet, Smith Peak to the northwest and Harquahalla Mountains to the southwest tower majestically in the distance and as a backdrop only enhance those fantastic Sonoran sunsets we’ve all come to love in Arizona. There are views in every direction. The most famous of which is Eagle Eye to the south.
The area had several Army Air Force training strips during WWII. Including the now long gone Echverria Field. There are also a surprising number of privately owned dirt airstrips nearby. Flyins can be arranged at some, such as the Flying Dare’s Ranch and Hillair Dirt Strip.
Eagle Roost is a residential association whose development began in 1972. Besides the 3906x40 lit runway, there are 120 plots of 5 acres each for private hangar homes, each with taxiway access. Plenty of room for all your activities and toys! There is also a new large, lovely and well equipped community center. It has a full kitchen, conference room, storage, restrooms… and a massive main communal space. Amongst the many events it hosts there is a monthly social hour for residents, meetings of the EAA and ERM as well as being available to residents for private functions.
Though there is no fuel on site, some of the residents do have their own systems and share delivery services to keep the price reasonable. At last report, the aircraft that “Roost” here included 55 single engine planes, 2 multi-engine, 1 helicopter, 2 ultra-lights and even 2 gliders. Just across the street is Sampley’s Airport, (28AZ), with 3500x75 dirt strip.
The 85 residential homes are as varied as the aircraft. There are even horse properties, (though no horses are currently on-site). Some have their own private wells, but all utilities are available.
