Field Flying Days
Casa Grande RC Flyers members can use the field any day that 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 $5.00 landing fee, except during special events, and must show their AMA or MAAC card to fly at our field. Spectators are always welcome at no charge. Watch the club web site, the club's Facebook page or your e-mail for when others will be flying.
Monthly Swap Meets
Join the Casa Grande RC Flyers on the 2nd Saturday of each month November through March at 9:00 AM for a monthly swap meet. Non-members wanting to set up a space at the swap are asked to make a $5.00 donation to the club to set up a table at the event. Spectators are always welcome for free. Table space is always free to our club members. All AMA pilots can enter and fly our Fun Fly events, however non Casa Grande RC Flyers members will be required to show their AMA card. Remember the 2nd Saturday of each month, November through March of each year. Come out and join us! Swap meets are only held during the months of November through March. Swap meet ends at noon. Food and beverage service are usually available.
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 winner. 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.
Drone And Helicopter Day
On the fourth Saturday of each month, November through March, join your fellow drone and helicopter pilots at the club field at 10:00 AM for a special morning of flying. On that day, drones and helicopters have runway priority. Please remember that all flights of any aircraft must be confined to our eleven acre site.
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 that hobby too. We try to schedule a car race monthly on the 3rd Saturday of each month, November through March. A transponder is NOT required to race. Watch the events list above and the club e-mails for the starting times.
