I've lived in Prescott Valley for 15 years now. Growth rate has been
incredible to say the least! There are 3 clubs currently operating in the
area. Two fields are dirt and one paved (finally). I belong to the Chino
Valley Model Aviators and personally, I think they have the undisputed best
field in this area. Here's the club site.
It's about a 30 minute drive from Prescott Valley.
Casa De Aero field is on the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University campus.
It's a dirt field surrounded by shrub oak and limited vertically by the Love
Field traffic pattern.
There used to be another field that was at the intersection of Hwy 69 and
169. Dirt strip surrounded by a deep drywash on two sides and fence on the
others. I don't know if it's still operating.
If you get into Prescott Valley, stop into Valley Hobby Shop. Tony and
Donna Pacini are the owners and have all the club information (including
maps to the fields) on hand and are extremely customer-friendly. Their
store is on the frontage road (north side) just off either Navajo Drive or
Any other questions about the area, email me (remove the "notso") and I'd
be glad to help out. If you do move here...Welcome to the neighborhood!
