UPDATE— We counted around 35 airplanes that flew in today and nearly 20 young Eagle rides given. Best of all, we served over 400 people for breakfast. Thanks to all who came from near and far for a fun day at Brodhead Airport.
EAA Chapter 431 kicks off the fly-in season every year with our Community Pancake Breakfast. This year’s fly-in, drive-in, bike-in, walk-in is on Sunday, May 19th, 2013 and includes all you can eat pancakes, two sausages, scrambled eggs and choice of beverage. Serving time is 7:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.
Children under 10, $4.00
Served up on our own airplane mechanic-designed professional pancake griddles by expert pilot/chefs, our pancake breakfast is a great way to spend a Sunday morning. There is outdoor seating under our pavilion as well as heated indoor seating in case of inclement weather.
If you’re flying in, set a course for Brodhead Airport (C37). Unicom is 122.9. There is plenty of parking so bring a wingman and start out the season with great flight to a wonderful grass airport. Driver-inners can head for Brodhead Airport Road, which is just south of the city limits off Highway 11. If you need a street address for your GPS, use N2439 Brodhead Airport Road. Otherwise, just look for the airplanes.
