The Arizona Flying Circus celebrates freedom, but it is not lawless.


While we generally don't like rules, we also recognize that a large event requires some direction, so we have implemented just enough restrictions to keep the train from careening off the rails.

Please read the following laws of MoTown:




The AFC requires all guests (including pilots, spectators, and minors) who choose to attend the AFC agree to and abide by the following rules:

All guests (including spectators, pilots, and vendors) who choose to visit Motown must sign the MoTown and AFC Release Waiver.

Enter and be at MoTown on your own responsibility and assume all risks, known & unknown.


 Don't do anything that could harm people. When in doubt, ask MoTown management, a safety officer, or a MoTown Maniac (volunteer) first. 

I understand that during the Arizona Flying Circus, art installations, rides, aircraft, vehicles, firearms, fireworks, pyrotechnics, and performances will be held and/or on display and I understand that these activities are not owned or operated by the Arizona Flying Circus and I assume all risks of injury or death arising from their operation. We do not vet or endorse any pilots or aircraft.  Passengers accept all risks associated with riding in the Aircraft. These risks include property damage, personal injury, and death, which may result from, among other things, turbulence, mechanical, collision, equipment malfunctions, emergency landings, or accidents. The Passenger expressly assumes these risks.

Children must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult legal guardian and supervised at all times. Keep in mind, children may be exposed to language, nudity, or other inappropriate actions. Also, there are no safety rails around anything at MoTown, you are responsible for your children's safety!

Pets must be kept on a leash and supervised at all times. Waste must be immediately picked up. Excessive barking is not tolerated. You are responsible for your pet's safety!

Non-flying, gas-powered vehicles (cars, RV's, motorcycles) allowed only in designated driveway & parking areas. For overflow parking, Safety Volunteers will guide ground vehicles to parking areas across the runway.

Gas-powered quads, dirt bikes, ATV's or other off-road type vehicles are not allowed at MoTown, nearby private property, or the bordering Sonoran Desert National Monument.


Electric and human-powered vehicles are allowed at Motown. Electric powered vehicles must have smooth tires only (no off-road, knobby tires allowed). 5mph maximum speed limit for electric and human powered vehicles at Motown.

MoTown firewood can only be used by MoTown Management or Maniac's.

Photographers, please respect pilot privacy and blur N-numbers on aircraft when publishing. See the photography terms on tickets.

MoTown owners, management, or volunteers are not responsible for damaged, lost, or stolen items.

If you are easily offended, MoTown is not the place for you. If you are offended you should immediately leave. If you stay, the offending action(s) will most likely get worse. However, this is not a license to be an annoying jackass. Respect others.

Have fun!
