16th Annual Arizona Flying Circus
February 14-17, 2019
Join us for an annual gathering celebrating a fun, eccentric, and diverse camaraderie of amazing people partaking in aviation, shooting, pyro fun, large scale art, and other activities in the pristine beauty of the Arizona Sonoran Desert.
Part fly-in, part Burning Man, part Wild West, the the Arizona Flying Circus has evolved into a rather unusual event like no other. Certainly a large variety of pilots make it out every year with their flying contraptions, but you will also find wild costumes, great food, explosions, enormous fires, fireworks, firearms (yes, there is a shooting range on site), live music, and the infamous bowling ball cannon.
What makes AFC amazing are the contributions of participants. We ask each person coming to AFC to bring something special, cool, unique, and exciting to share at the event. Especially anything that fly's, shoots, burns, explodes, or is just plain weird. But participants have also donated artwork, talents, construction, safety, and cleanup. For example, the "Flying Man" sculpture was donated by two talented artists a few years ago.
The AFC is a purely volunteer effort guided by our love and passion of flight and to celebrate our remaining freedoms, meet and reconnect with fellow birds of a feather, and gather at this breathtaking place. All proceeds collected from year to year go right back into making this event even more amazing than the last. We welcome your generous donations in time, talents, and resources to make this amazing event continue from year to year.
Located just thirty miles Southwest of Phoenix in beautiful Vekol Valley, Motown Airport (5AZ6) is an amazing haven for flying, shooting, and enjoying the beauty of the open desert. You can either fly in or drive in. The property features a huge Paramotor launch area and two hard-packed, smooth, dirt runways. The East-West runway is 2700' long and 65' wide! We also have a open hangar and a fantastic pilot lounge. Surrounded by pristine desert mountains and incredible wildlife, this 80 acre haven is ideal for Ultralight, LSA, and GA flying. Located just 30 miles to the South East of Phoenix, this site can be difficult to find and drive to. But the rewards of finding and flying here far out weigh the adventure of getting there. Come join us for warm winter flying in sunny Arizona!
