The Weekender: Breakfast, Lunch and Safety Seminar Fly-Ins
SocialFlight has again presented us with a wide array of breakfast, lunch and recurrent training fly ins this weekend. Pilots can’t beat the deal at the Breakfast Fly In at Logan-Cache Airport, Logan, Utah. The sponsors are hosting a free pancake, egg, sausage and fruit breakfast from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8. On top of the price of the food, there will be discounted fuel during the breakfast. A little to the north the Flying Farmers are presenting Flying Farmers and FAA WINGS 2014—Three Safety Seminars in One Day. The event covers the subjects required by Flying Farmers Annual Proficiency Training. It’s taking place at Big Bend Community College at Grant County International Airport, Moses Lake, Wash., Saturday, Feb. 8, starting at 9:30 a.m. The Central Arkansas Sport Flyers are putting on a Pancake Breakfast Saturday, Feb. 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Carlisle Municipal Airport, Carlisle, Ark. The announcement says it’s Central Arkansas’ best aviation pancake breakfast – the gauntlet has been thrown; is this truly the best aviation pancake breakfast in Central Arkansas? This could take some dedicated fly in research by pilots in the area.
We spotted a fly in breakfast at Guntersville Municipal Airport, Alabama (8A1 is just north of downtown Guntersville, approached over the lake), where EAA Chapter 683 is holding its Second Saturday Breakfast from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Bring your fishing equipment; Lake Guntersville is the largest lake in Alabama and listed as the fourth best bass fishing lake in the U.S. A never-before fly in came to our attention—the first Chilly Chili Fly In and Lunch will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Triple Tree Airport, Woodruff, S.C. Triple Tree staff and volunteers invite all pilots to lunch on one of the coldest days of the year on their 7000 x 400 foot grass strip. Finally, the American Yankee Organization is sponsoring a Grumman Lunch on Saturday, Feb. 8 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at KBLM, Monmouth Executive Airport, Belmar, N.J. We are assured that no Grummans will be consumed and that all other aircraft types are welcome but may be parked out of sight. If you have an aviation event coming up, got to SocialFlight and put it up for all to see.
