Phoenix is home to two great jet capable flying fields. The Arizona Model Aviators in Mesa and the Sun Valley Flyers in Scottsdale.

The Arizona Jet Rally, November 22cd thru the 24th 2019, had 45 registered pilots. The event was limited to turbines and large EDF jets. Contest Director, John Mangino, did an awesome job organizing the event. The Arizona Model Aviators field is 850 ft long and 150 ft wide accommodating even the biggest jets. As usual, BVM jets were well represented!

Winter Warbirds, January 24th thru the 26th, accommodated 85 pilots. The Sun Valley field is 650 ft long with plenty of smooth overrun on both ends; perfect for jets. There was a large and varied assortment of nice scale aircraft ranging from WW1 to current day jet fighters. Contest Director, Tony Quist, kept a full flight line running smoothly with at least 4 planes in the air all weekend.

If your looking for great winter flying and weather to match check out these events. You wonít be disappointed!
