Sonoran Desert Flyers is a model aircraft club (electric-powered aircraft, helicopters, and multi-rotors) whose friendly members are dedicated to having fun and fellowship with like-minded aviation inclined individuals.
Wow! What a show the Sonoran Desert Flyers put
on last Saturday at Naranja Park in Oro Valley for their annual Aviation Awareness Day. There was something for everyone - from high
tech model aircraft demonstrations to para gliders plus a visit from a local medical rescue helicopter. The morning started out darn
chilly but it soon heated up with the enthusiasm of the crowd reacting to the skillfulness of the flyers putting their aircraft through
acrobatic maneuvers. And some of the most skillful flyers were the kids as young as 8 and 11 years old! One of the best things
about the event was that all the raffle proceeds went to the Wounded Warrior Project! Congratulations to the Sonoran Desert
Flyers and to the town of Oro Valley for providing a super family event.
It's more than a hobby, it's a career path !
We are a youth oriented club We love to teach kids (young and old) how to fly. And in the process we teach a bit of flight physics, electronics, chemistry, and even meteorology Come on out and enjoy the company and mentoring of our highly experienced membership and learn how to fly.
