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.
Every year friends of the ̶d̶e̶s̶p̶o̶t̶ Mayor make the trip to the Supreme Leader's remote nation in the Sonoran Desert called MoTown. Part fly-in, part Burning Man, part Wild West, 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, explosions, enormous fires, great food, fireworks, flamethrowers, artwork, firearms (yes, there is a shooting range on site), live music, and the infamous bowling ball cannon.
The AFC is a purely ̶f̶o̶r̶c̶e̶d̶ 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. Come join us for warm winter flying in sunny Arizona!
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 an open hangar and a fantastic pilot lounge.
Bordering the Sonoran National Monument and surrounded by pristine desert mountains and incredible wildlife, this 80-acre haven is ideal for Ultralight, LSA, and GA flying.
MoTown can be difficult to find and drive to, but the rewards of flying here far outweigh the adventure of getting to MoTown.
