Arrival: 
If you like, a few aircraft will be arriving Friday afternoon and most arriving Saturday Morning. Plan on high density altitude.

Activities: 
Depending on weather, and pilot discretion, we plan an aerial tour of cliff dwellings, canyons, etc.
Saturday evening at around 6pm, Chuck Freegard of the Pleasant Valley Fire Department will be cooking steaks for APA/RAF Guests at $12 per person.
The APA and RAF will also be installing a shade at the airstrip, and other maintenance items, so we’ll take all the help we can get on these activities.

Food: 
Plan on hitching a ride to town for dinner with Chuck at the Pleasant Valley Community Center
All other meals are on your own. There are currently fire restrictions in the Tonto National Forest so there are no wood or charcoal fires. 

Camping: 
It’s the perfect time of year to spend the night under the stars with your flying friends!

Safety Note:
24AZ is a “Back Country” airstrip and, as such, should be considered in Flight Planning. Both pilot and aircraft should be capable / skilled in landing and taking off on narrow, short, and soft field airstrips. As Pilot in Command of your aircraft, it is your responsibility to determine whether you can safely land and takeoff from this airstrip. Crosswinds and high density altitudes are not uncommon in mountainous areas such as Pleasant Valley Airstrip.

Cancelation:
If weather forces a cancelation, we will send you notification by Friday afternoon and post it on the website and Facebook site. Of course, it is your responsibility to determine yours, and your aircraft’s, weather and crosswind capability.
