The Weekender: Labor Day Getaways


The Weekender is looking forward to long Labor Day getaways, plus breakfast destinations found on The Arizona Pilots Association invites all for a long backcountry weekend in Young, starting with dinner Friday, followed by breakfast Saturday, an evening Corn-Fest and a chili cook-off. Camping and other accommodations are available for the weekend.

EAA Chapter 1365 will host a breakfast fly-in/drive-in at the Mauston-New Lisbon, Wisconsin, airport on Saturday. The event kicks off with breakfast served by the Mauston Lions, followed by an FAA Safety Team seminar, judging for RV best of show and an antique auto and farm equipment display.

Also Saturday, the first Portage Wings and Wheels Fly-in/Cruise-in will take place in Ohio. Everything with an engine — especially airplanes, helicopters, antique cars and tractors and motorcycles — is welcome, with judging in each category.

EAA Chapter 1466 in Prosser, Washington, will host a Saturday fly-in with contests for the entire family, kicking off with a “greaser landing” contest for early arrivals. Come Friday night for a barbecue and on-field camping, and stay for the long weekend to see the locally famous parade on Labor Day.
