We are excited to announce the 48th Annual CRACKER FLY-IN at Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport on Saturday, July 8th!

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 share the love of flying with your future aviators!

Be sure to visit us at the Lanier Flight Center display for 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!  Then, take-off on an Introductory Flight with one of our skilled instructors!  Experience everything from splashing-in with floatplanes to arriving in style with 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 8 for the Cracker Fly-in!
