The 2009 Phoenix Fun Fly

Ladies, gentlemen and heli-crazed fans of all ages, step right up and witness one of the sport’s most exciting and fun-filled tour stops!

The Phoenix Fun Fly, presented by the Arizona Rotary Modeler’s Society, is taking place over a 3-day span this year: February 27, 28, and March 1. The 13th celebration of the Phoenix Fun Fly is set to be bigger and better than the 12 previous combined.

With more pilots, more night flying, and better all-around competition, both pilots and spectators are in for a rare treat.

Addressing one of the crowd’s biggest concerns, unfortunately, the field – and surrounding fields – at the Fly In still do not allow overnight RV camping due to their proximity to flood zones.

Many modelers agree that staying overnight on the field is half the fun of the experience, but a small sacrifice can pay off in the form of big excitement.

If you’re new to the Fun Fly, rest assured that you will see some of the country’s best pilots make the trek and showcase their talents in the night flying, open flying, and various contests during the 3-day event.

The festival will feature on-site vendors and concessions for both spectators and pilots, and pilots will be able to meet each day in preparation for events.

The event opens at 8:00 a.m. on Friday morning (27th), and the registration for the Fun Fly’s many events – novice, intermediate, and expert – will require a 2009 AMA Card.

The Phoenix Fun Fly is set to hold raffle drawings, giving away everything from cash to complete RC Heli kits. Last year, a T-Rex 500 was given away.

The event will be held at the Sun Valley Fliers field in North Phoenix at N Cave Creek Rd & E Jomax Rd, Phoenix, AZ, 85024
