The picturesque Eagle Roost Airpark (27 AZ) is nestled between the quaint old town of Aguila, AZ and a 65 million year old volcano. It is situated 25 miles west of Wickenburg on old highway 60, in the "Valley of the Eagle". One mile square with 128 five acre lots, a 3900' x 40' paved runway and paved taxi ways, a place we lovingly call home.
This year, 2018 we boast a new re-coated smooth runway with freshly painted numbers. The numbers are compliments of the Women's Pilot Organization 99s.
Eagle Roosters fly out for breakfast or camping to many locations throughout Arizona, landing and taking off from desert runways, like Wayside or Bouse, or to the paved runways like Sedona, Prescott or Parker. For those who enjoy gambling and endless buffets try the Blue Water Resort & Casino in Parker.
Members' aircraft include single engine Ultralights, Sport Aircraft, Cessnas, Piper Cubs, Pacers, Tri-Pacers, Mooneys, Rans, Stinsons, a Stearman and twins like the Aerostar and the Cessna 310.
War birds like the T-6 and T-28 restored to all their glory. Flyby's happen all the time. Hard to imagine during WWII that there were literally thousands of these planes flying to protect our country.
So whatever aircraft you own, you'll find new friends to enjoy the experience with you.
In addition to flying, ATV'ing here is at its finest where you can drive out of the gates and venture many miles in either direction to enjoy the open desert or 4 wheel drive mountain trails and explore old mines and ghost towns along the way.
Desert camping can be enjoyed throughout the BLM lands that surround Eagle Roost.
What can we say about the weather. Almost 360 flying days a year, most days are cloudless. If we wake up and the sun is not shining we wonder what's happening.
So when your friends back east or up north are shoveling snow (white manure), you can enjoy desert camp outs in 70 degree weather.
Shooting / Hunting
There is a rifle range and trap range on the south side of Eagle Eye mountian.
The Aguila area boosts the finest drinking water in all of Arizona. There are 200' deep wells that supply delicious drinking water right from the tap, so no need to soften or filter. The latest reports show that there will be plenty of water for years to come. (See water report on home page.)
Admittedly about 5 years ago we had trouble with break-ins. At that time we installed gates which are always kept locked at all times. Since the gates were installed the break-ins have ceased. Now we can boast we are a "Gated Community". (Thanks to Joe Arpaio most of the illegals have left the area. He is the only man in history who was incriminated for doing his sworn duty.)
