Annual Events

Slope Day 2004, photo by Durwood ClineSlope Flying Day: Big Air on the Top of Sheba Crater

Flagstaff Flyers and guests enjoy BIG slope conditions on the top of Sheba Crater along Leupp Road. Winds can run in the high 20's and 30's in the morning and grow stronger as the day progresses. We may even have a few gusts as high as 60 mph! There is often some intense combat flying and some acrobatic fun as folks "dance" under a limbo line.

Zagi Day

In May we have Zagi Day at the Mormon Lake Overlook. Flying starts early and will often last past noon. The wind often never stops! We usually have a good turnout with lots of exciting combat and fun flying. Photos....

Beat the Heat Fly-In

Each July the Flagstaff Flyers host a very popular event called Beat the Heat, a 3 day event which usually draws flyers from all over the state. It’s not uncommon for 50 flyers to visit us for this event.

Annual Field Cleanup Day

As we transition into prime flying weather the Club has a pancake breakfast and cleanup day out swt the field to get it ready to go. We always have a great turnout and lots of work is accomplished. Field Day Photos...

Annual Soaring in the Pines Event at Mountainare Thermal Field

In August we have our soaring event in Mountainare. The weather is usually beautiful that time of year, and visitors from other clubs frequently join us for this fun event. Photos...

The Annual Dinner

Each January we have our annual dinner where we welcome in the new officers, celebrate a year of flying, recognize the accomplishments of our members, and join in on a good old raffle!
