RAF and APA Payson Fly-In and Air Camping Weekend, Arizona

The annual APA/RAF Payson Fly-In and Air Camping Weekend, will be held on April 6-8. Throw your tent and sleeping bag in the plane and join us Saturday night for a potluck dinner and overnight stay at the campground. You can camp just a few feet from your airplane, and we are going to have a happy hour, potluck dinner, and then enjoy the sounds of some of our more talented members who moonlight as amateur guitar and banjo pickers. It is tradition that many of our campground chefs will be bringing their trusty Dutch ovens and try out some of their best chuck wagon recipes for everyone.
