UPDATE, EVENT CANCELED: Due to inclement weather the Airplane Fly-In and Pancake breakfast is canceled. We were looking forward to being out in the community and hope we will see you all at a later date. Thank you for your continued support of the Eastland County Crisis Center!
This year’s Airplane Fly-In & Pancake Breakfast will be held at the Eastland Municipal Airport on Saturday, May 1st from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm in conjunction with the Eastland Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). This family-friendly event will be free to the public with any donations going to the Crime Victim Assistance Center. Breakfast will include pancakes, sausage, juice, coffee, and water and will be prepared by local “Celebrity Chefs.” These celebrities are from area businesses, churches, and other organizations that will be competing for Top Chef with their own combination of sprinkles, fruit, and other pancake toppings. Attendees can also view vintage, modern, and emergency aircraft as well as participate in free airplane rides provided by EAA. EAA sponsors the plane rides, which are subject to their requirements and weather and flying conditions.

Aviators wishing to participate in the fly-in or anyone interested in the free plane rides, contact Bode with Eastland Aero, LLC at 254.629.1588.
