Join us in Somerton (just outside of Yuma, AZ) for the second stop in National STOL’s 2023 series! Established by Jonathan Stains, Outlaw STOL was inspired by the cowboy crop duster style of the Southwest and the Bush flyers of the Northwest. Outlaw STOL is made possible by the support of Somerton Airport owner, Eric Saltzer, and other local businesses.
Pilots, earn points towards the 2023 season standings by registering for Outlaw STOL in our Standard or Unlimited Classes! Not sure you are ready for a standard class, but want to test your skills in a STOL competition? Consider registering in our Rookie class. Pilot registration closes on Friday, April 21, at the close of practice.
If you are planning to come out and watch Outlaw STOL, save money by purchasing your tickets in advance! Spectator tickets for Saturday’s competition are $10 online and will increase to $15 after April 20. Airfield camping is also available, but space is limited! Book your RV, tent, or airplane camping as soon as possible.
No National STOL event would be possible without our team of volunteers! As a volunteer, you will be part of the one of the most exciting and fasted growing sports in General Aviation. When you volunteer for one of our competitions, you get the behind-the-scenes experience; getting up close interactions to some awesome pilots, aircraft, and amazing takeoffs and landings. Please visit our Volunteer page for further information.
For your convenience, National STOL has arranged a block of rooms at the Cocopah Casino & Resort, just 3 minutes from Somerton Airport. To receive the reduced rate of $90.95 per night (Thursday-Sunday), please CALL the hotel directly at (928) 722-6677 and and mention group code STOL. All bookings must be made by Thursday, April 13th.

Finally, please note that the remainder of the 2023 Season has seen a few modifications. Be sure to update your calendars with the latest information on our season stops! All event dates and locations are subject to change until registration opens:
