Breakfast is served from around 8 am to around 10 am and is $7.00 for adults and $3.00 for children under age 18. Breakfast includes all the pancakes and eggs one can eat, a helping of bacon or sausage, orange juice, coffee and bottled water.

June 19, 2019 – IMC Club: Manny Puerta, Chapter 403 member, will be leading the monthly EAA IMC Club presentation and discussion at 1800 on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Chapter House. Each month will entail a different, actual IFR scenario experienced by pilots. The next meeting will be Wednesday, June 19. Chapter members and any other interested persons are welcome. These events are sanctioned by an FAA program known as “Wings – Pilot Proficiency Program.” If you plan to attend on this date, it is requested that you register, if you haven’t already, at: https://www.faasafety.gov/WINGS/pppinfo/default.aspx

Once you are registerd on that website, register for the seminar. We have a seat limit of 40, so registering for the seminar sets you up for Wings credit and ensures a seat.

Also bring your EFB/iPad to follow the night’s scenario.
