I'm a bit late to this ... I am actually flying out of Marana and we have 3 additional RV-12s out here. I personally love flying to San Carlos Apache (P13) as the airport (they now have AvGas and Jet-A) is right across from the Apache Casino (and a gas station for Mogas) which has great breakfast options.
Also just a short 30 minute flight from AVQ and not really far from the PHX area either.

Default Phoenix Area Breakfast Get Together

Okay guys...place: Hangar Cafe-Chandler Airpot @ 9:00am
Date: December 29th Friday

RV-12er’s (or any other RV model A/C)

Following breakfast, my cohort in crime& I are going on a scenic flight around our local area...Grand Canyon & Brice. Would love company (maybe practice some formation flying (we are both x-military rotor heads who at onetime in our life’s were required to)..maybe not tight. But some good picture taking.

Hope to see you all..I am told the food is yummy.

Edit: since no one has responded...will try @ another time/date

Sorry for hijacking this thread but what is the best/coolest thing to do in the Phoenix area? I'm flying the 10th of january from MSP to PHX and leaving the 12th very early back to MSP and then to AMS. One of the things we're going to do is visiting my son who has his flight training at Goodyear.

Regards, Joeri

If you want family (non-aviation) stuff and if you like music, the Musical Instrument Museum is quite unique and an interesting visit.
