Motown Airport (5AZ6) is an incredible haven for flying. You can either fly in or drive in. We have a huge PPG launch area and a hard packed silky smooth dirt runway 2700' long and 65' wide! 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.
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.
