The Weekender: Never Out Of Coffee


SocialFlight’s calendar will have the Weekender looking for some old-fashioned hangar flying, airplane rides and airport-hopping. On Saturday, the North Vernon Municipal Airport and EAA Chapter 1328 in Indiana will serve free coffee and donuts while supplies last, welcoming all to fly or drive in. Everyone is welcome to join the group every other weekend through March. Sky Ranch in Carefree, Arizona, will open its private field Saturday for its Air Fair, free and open to all. See antique, homebuilt and modern airplanes, an RC model airshow, autos on display and enjoy food services from Cave Creek Smokehouse.

Also Saturday in Fayette, Alabama, kids 8 to 17 can join the Young Eagles rally and enjoy rides with EAA pilots at Richard Arthur Field. Through the weekend, the Ford Tri-Motor tour will make a stop to offer rides at Gillespie Field in El Cajon, California. See the Tin Goose on display in front of the airport’s administration building. On Sunday, Carp Airport in Ottawa, Ontario, will host visitors with coffee and snacks in the chapter lounge. Gather by the wood stove if it’s cold enough. If you’re flying in, find the chapter on Taxiway B. For more about the week’s upcoming events, visit SocialFlight.
