Marana/Avra Valley – Friday 19th July 2019 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

An early start was required to undertake our flights over AMARG and Marana/Pinal Air Park and so we met up with our pilot Mike Matthews, who runs Marana Flight School. We were very happy with his communications pre-trip, the cost rate for the flights and actual flights delivered.

Do him a favour and ask for an instructional flight to get around the rules that limit who can provide scenic flights in the Tucson area. He will know what you really want……..

Whilst we waited for each other to complete these flights, the time was well spent having a good look around the airfield. Just ask at the control point once you are airside with Mike before doing so.
