EAA Chapter 1541 will be participating with a Pancake Breakfast from 7 am until 10 am. We’ll also have our flight simulators our for folks to enjoy a short flight, and we’ll have an informational booth to answer any questions. Also on the airport: many dozens of display aircraft including military and CalFire, plus hot air balloons, classic cars, vendor booths, food trucks, and youth activities. It will be a great day to see our local airport and have some family fun.

Coming this Saturday (August 12): Pancake Breakfast

We will be having our Second Saturday Pancake Breakfast from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. in the EAA hangar, S-12 at the Lincoln Regional Airport. If you are not familiar with the airport, navigate to Flight Line Drive and follow the “EAA” signs. All are welcome.

We’ll be cooking pancakes, eggs, and other good stuff from 8:00 am to 9:30 am when the grill shuts down, so come early. Breakfast is  $10.00 per person, $5.00 per child under 12, or $20.00 per family.

Something new: our chapter is now accepting payment via credit or debit cards, and also Venmo and PayPal. We will be trying out our new systems in preparation for the August 26 Airport Open House.

Our chapter Board of Directors will be having its monthly meeting directly after the pancake breakfast, so you are welcome to stick around for that also.

Come on out and enjoy some

good food and hangar flying too.


IMC/VMC club online meeting on Thursday, August 3 at 7 pm PDT

Our IMC/VMC online club meeting will be from 7 to 8 pm PDT on Thursday, August 3rd.  Our program will feature a combined IFR+VFR “What Would You Do?” scenario involving a night flight from a Southern California airport that has been in the news recently, over the SoCal mountains to Arizona.  Mid-flight something happens and the flight instruments don’t make sense any more.

In addition to our group discussion, there will be a brief tutorial presentation on the factors that caused the unexpected challenges that the pilot experienced.  We look forward to a lively interchange and all are invited to participate.  To join the Zoom meeting, click here at 7 pm on Thursday 8/3.

Fly safe!
