Field Flying Days
Casa Grande RC Flyers members can use the field any day they desire, but flyers are usually there each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings about 10:00 AM in the winter. Summer flying is usually an hour after sunrise most Saturday mornings. All flying is subject to weather conditions. Guest AMA & MAAC pilots are welcome but must pay a $10.00 landing fee and must show their AMA or MAAC card to use our field. Spectators are always welcome at no charge. Watch the club web site, the club's Facebook page, or your e-mail for times others will be flying.
Monthly Swap Meets
Join the Casa Grande RC Flyers on the 2nd Saturday of each month December through March at 9:00 AM for our monthly swap meet. Non-members wanting to set up a space at the swap are asked to make a $10.00 donation to set up or use a club table at the event. Spectators are always welcome for free. Table space is always free to our club members. AMA and MAAC membership is NOT required to use or set up a swap meet table. Remember the 2nd Saturday of each month, December through March of each year, to come out and join us! Swap meets ends at noon.
Fun Fly Events
This year the Casa Grande RC Flyers may hold fun fly events starting at 11:00 AM on swap meet days. The club may also hold fun fly events on other Saturday dates as desired by the membership. Events are approprate for all level of flyng ability. Prizes are usually offered to the winners. Also everyone who enters the fun fly will be given a drawing ticket for a chance to win a prize! Come out and enjoy the day at the Casa Grande RC Flyers field. Non-members must pay a $10.00 landing fee to use the field and also present their current AMA or MAAC mambership card.
Drone And Helicopter Day
On the fourth Saturday of each month at 10:00 AM, December through March, join your fellow drone and helicopter pilots at the club field for a special morning of flying. On that day, drones and helicopters have runway priority. Please remember that flights of any aircraft must be confined to our eleven acre site. Come and try our new "Drone Race Track". Non-member "landing" fee apply.

Radio Controlled Car Races
We are primarily a flying club but we also have a radio controlled car track as some of our members enjoy this hobby too. We try to schedule a car race monthly on the 3rd Saturday of each month, December through March. A transponder is NOT required to race. Watch the events listing and the club e-mails for the exact dates and starting times. Non-members must pay a $10.00 use fee to race on the track. They must also be a member of the AMA or MAAC and show their card.
