Once again, Mo Sheldon of Airparamo opens up MoTown to host the 2017 Arizona Flying Circus. Located just thirty miles Southwest of Phoenix in beautiful Vekol Valley, MoTown is an amazing haven for flying. 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! Surrounded by pristine desert mountains and incredible wildlife, MoTown is ideal for Ultralight, LSA, and GA flying. Come join us for warm winter flying in sunny Arizona!
Part 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.
This year we have some special events planned including breakfast available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings, a catered Saturday night banquet, the amazing bowling ball cannon, and a talent show of Western flare including whips and gun slinging, a huge bonfire, fireworks, sky lanterns, etc.
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. Portajohns and wash sinks will be available at the event.
