The Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 534 will host a fly/drive-in pancake breakfast from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Oct. 1 in the chapter’s hangar at the Leesburg International Airport.
In addition to enjoying a menu of pancakes (blueberry or plain), sausage patties, coffee, and juice, attendees will have the chance to meet local EAA members and learn about the Squadron 534 youth group. Tours of several building projects the chapter has going on in the hangar will also be offered and, as always, there will be plenty of flying stories from all in attendance.
Chapter 534 is especially active in introducing youth to flying. Earlier this year, the group held a Young Eagles First Flight event for boys and girls between 8 and 17 years old. Also, an 18-year-old member recently earned her pilot’s license with help from a scholarship awarded by the organization.
Plenty of car and plane parking will be available for the event. Use the SunAir Ramp for plane parking and, if you drive, take Wilco Drive off U.S. Hwy. 441, take the first right through the open gate and you will be facing the EAA hangar.
Donations for breakfast will be appreciated. For more information, email or call Paul Adrien at (352) 250-0055.
