Pancakes & Young Eagles Flying at EAA240

Our first Pancake Breakfast and Young Eagles event happened today, a great start to our 2019 season. A strong volunteer showing both Friday late-afternoon and then Saturday morning ensured our success in both ventures.

We served over 140 breakfasts and got many compliments on the new menu and tabletop items, all well received.

A beautiful morning enabled EAA240’s pilots and ground crew to offer Young Eagle flights to each of 33 kids today. All had a great time and each left the aircraft with a great experience and an appreciation for the potential of aviation, and flight.

Our thanks to the EAA240 YE team and to our visiting pilots and aircraft who made this a very special day for so many kids. And, of course, thanks to our Breakfast volunteers who made the morning so enjoyable for so many.

Well done all!
