Father's Day Fly in - Drive in breakfast

Father's Day Fly in - Drive in breakfast

Postby backstagedee » Wed Jun 03, 2009 9:33 pm

Fly-in June 21st from 06:00 until we run out of sausage.

Bring Dad to the the 39th annual Mishawaka Pilot's club Father's Day pancake breakfast. $6 for adults get's you scrambled eggs, Jawarski's sausage, AYCE pancakes, coffee, milk and OJ. Kids are cheaper, but I don't remember the price. Airplane rides are available with handsome and skilled pilots. The flight line is open to the public so you can get up close to the aircraft. Last year's ride proceeds funded our very first aviation scholarship that I had the honor of presenting to a Jimtown student last week. I would like to present one at every area school over the next several decades, so tell your kids to apply if they have an interest in any area of aviation.

The Pilot's Club is locate on CR 20 W in Elkhart about a mile and a half East of County Line rd or a mile and a half West of SR 19.

How long does the sausage usually last? Also, approximately what time do y'all start taking people up?

We start with rides at 06:00, and the sausage should last until at least 11:00. (I ordered 325 lbs and I can count on the grill guys to eat at least 10 lb.) I have no age requirements on airplane rides with parental consent and the rides are around $15 to $20. (I'll have to check this year's price, but I believe fuel is about the same cost as last June so I am pretty sure it is still $15) The earlier the better, because the line gets long from 09:00 on and as it warms up the rides get a little bumpier. From 06:30 to 08:30 is the best time.

Since Jerry and Dean were our pancake aces for many years, I may draft a couple of BSG chefs to help with the breakfast... I just haven't told them yet, and the BSD girls always help with drink service and cashier duties.

If you need another hand on deck...say the word. Tell me when and where and I'll be there.

Mishawaka Pilot’s Club Fly-in an annual Father’s Day event

At the Mishawaka Pilot’s Club Airport, they’re already busy preparing for the big event this weekend – the annual Father’s Day Fly-in.

The annual event has been taking place for over 60 years, and hundreds of people are expected to turn out to see the planes in action.

This year’s event is being held at the Mishawaka Pilot’s Club Airport, located on County Road 20 in Elkhart.

The fly-in kicks off Sunday morning with a breakfast, and after that dads and their families have a chance to get airplane rides.

“I’ve given hundreds of airplane rides, and we’ve had many people join and decide to learn how to fly. We’ve had many people take their very first airplane ride in their 80s, and we’ve had kids take their first airplane ride at two or three years old,” says airport manager Tom May.

Thanks York, and Tom May was standing there as I said that..................... Hey Scottie, Ryan even had me say and spell my name on camera and they still got it wrong, oh well. I'm better looking anyway. Come on out on Sunday. We even have 2 of the BSG chefs coming out to help out and Miss BSD will be there serving drinks and cleaning tables. We par boiled a huge order of Jaworski's sausage yesterday and I can't wait to brown it up on the grill and eat some. (Alright BK, I didn't wait... I tried some and it was really good.) Proceeds are for the MPC Aviation Scholarship.
