The 2017 Arizona Flying Circus online registration is not yet open.

 

The 14th Annual Arizona Flying Circus will be happening February 9-12, 2017 at MoTown!
GrumpPart fly-in, part Burning Man, part Wild West, the the Arizona Flying Circus has evolved into a rather unusual flying 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), and the infamous bowling ball cannon.

What makes AFC amazing are the contributions of the participants. We ask each person coming to AFC to bring something special 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.

ShirtThis year we have some special events planned including an award winning catered BBQ feast for the Saturday night banquet, the amazing bowling ball cannon, and a talent show of Western flare including whips and gun swinging, a huge bonfire, fireworks, etc. For the Saturday banquet bring your strangest costume.

You are welcome to camp out on Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday nights. Trailers, RVs, motor coaches and tent camping are welcome and there's plenty of space for everyone. Dry camping only, we have no hookups. But we do have plenty of fresh drinking water from a well on site. Portajons and wash sinks will be available at the event.

For food, we will have an incredible breakfast available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings. For Saturday, lunch and dinner will be incredible food by Up N Smoke BBQ Co. available with event preregistration or for sale during the event. Variety sodas and water will be available for sale during the event.

Runway & Aircraft Details:
Motown Airport (5AZ6) is an FAA designated private airfield. There is an EW hard-packed dirt runway 2700' long by 65' wide and a taxiway to park aircraft. The NS runway is usable for only slow aircraft with tundra type tires: there is a section of the NS runway that is washed out and may damage your aircraft if you attempt to cross it. Buckets of sand are available as tie-downs. Park your aircraft in the taxiway on the NW side of the EW runway. Aircraft patterns are to the South or West. Please avoid flying over the NE area as there will be people shooting guns towards the NE hill. Also be aware of the open areas adjacent to the runways where paramotors are launching and landing. We will use 122.9 as the main aircraft frequency. Many of the ultralights will be on FRS channel 5 or 6.
