George Maloof Air Park
The Flying Field
Overview:

George Maloof Air Park, located on the West Mesa past the Petroglyph Park.  The field features a 700' paved runway, large shaded area with tables,
BBQ grills, water, bathrooms, and plenty of parking.

The field also includes a helicopter area with three 10 ft x 10 ft landing pads, free flight areas to the east and south,  and shade-covered tables.  The helicopter site uses the same frequency
control as the fixed wing runway, so please "pin up" before turning on your transmitter anywhere on the field. Maloof Field is open to all R/C modelers who adhere to the rules and regulations
of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA).



Restrictions:
  • Flying pattern enforced
  • Spotters required at all times
  • Pin-up required for all NON-2.4 Ghz radio systems
