The EAA-105 Chapter sponsors a monthly pancake breakfast, open to everyone!.
Begun by the Chapter in 1994 to raise funds for construction of a hangar, our monthly breakfast has become a local tradition. Folks from all over the Northwest come by car and by air to enjoy our breakfast, walk the flight line, and talk airplanes. When good weather prevails it’s common to have over thirty aircraft fly in including a heavy contingency of RV’s.
The menu is simple: scrambled eggs, blueberry pancakes, strips of bacon or breakfast sausage, grits, orange juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate.
Rain or shine, holidays or not, breakfast will be served the first Saturday of every month (The current year’s schedule is to the right below.). The hangar door to the dining hall opens at 8:00 AM. The line can get noticeably long by 9:00 AM, with many regulars showing up by 7:30 AM to avoid the crowds. The hangar door to the dining hall is usually closed by 10:00 AM, but if you’re in line by then, you’ll be served. No one goes away hungry!
Cost is nominal, just $7.00 (and only $3.00 for youth). A portion of the proceeds are allocated to the chapter’s youth activity fund. This fund is used for youth aviation scholarships and Young Eagles flight activities.
This has grown to be a popular fly-in event, with planes coming down from north of Seattle, from all over the Northwest really, so during good flying weather expect a lot of traffic in the pattern. If you are ground bound, it’s a good time to come down and see a lot of airplanes! All types, experimental as well as the normal Cessna’s and Pipers.
Bring the kids
What kid doesn’t love the combination of a great pancake breakfast followed by real airplanes! However, we do ask that you be doubly vigilant and know where your children are at all times. Safety awareness is critical when walking the flight line.
