We are excited to participate in the 47th Annual CRACKER FLY-IN at Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport on Saturday, July 9th!
Our friends with EAA Chapter 611 are bringing something for everyone! Come for the Pancake Breakfast at 7:30am and stay for a Warbird, DC-3, WACO biplane, or a Huey or Cobra helicopter ride. Explore 150 aircraft from all over the Southeast including historic, homebuilt, helicopters, and more. Bring the family for the children’s activities, and enjoy a delicious Hickory Pig Barbeque lunch.
Be sure to visit us at the Lanier Flight Center display to experience a wide array of aviation activities, and register to win an Introductory Flight in a new Cessna Skyhawk! Explore Cessna aircraft and speak with our instructors about all levels of flight training to reach your aviation goals! Meet our Sky Pirates who will regale you with tales of flying floatplanes! Feel like a million bucks without having to buy your own jet while learning about our Lanier Flight Express charter opportunities!
Parking is free through a special Palmour Drive entrance off of Queen City Parkway at I-985, and there is only a $5 donation per person at the gate (free for children 12 and under). So mark your calendars and join us Saturday, July 9 for the Cracker Fly-in!
