Airport hosts annual Fly-In Breakfast next week

Staff Writer

PECOS, Friday, July 26, 2002 -- The excitement of the wild blue will bring area pilots to Pecos for the  17th Annual Pecos Fly-In Breakfast at  the Pecos Municipal Airport next weekend.

The breakfast is scheduled for 7 a.m., on Sunday, Aug 4, and will give area and local pilots as well as community members a chance to share experiences and dreams of the vast skies.

The breakfast, which will be cooked by the Lion's Club, is scheduled for 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., and everyone is welcome.

Airport Manager Isabelle Blanchard said that this year more activities are planned for the pilots and citizens including the annual Cantaloupe Bombing contest.

The events of the day not only include the breakfast and the contest but also a Young Eagles Program and an Aviation Safety Program.

Blanchard explained that the Young Eagles Program is for kids from the ages of eight to 17 and gives them a chance to learn about aviation.

"They get a free flight around town," she said.

The last time the Young Eagles Program was offered locally was five years ago, according to Blanchard.

She said that day approximately 78 kids participated in the program and had the chance to take a bird's eye view of Pecos.

"It's a great program," she said.

To register for the program kids and their parents need to show up at the airport the day of the fly-in and there is no charge to participate.

Blanchard said that the program was designed to provide exciting information about aviation to kids.

"The idea of the program is that young children can be exposed to some kind of experience with the idea that they might set their goals higher," she said.

The pilots also have the chance to attend a safety seminar provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Blanchard said the seminar would be on aviation and aircraft safety.

She also explained that the pilots would have the opportunity to receive a courtesy evaluation of their aircraft.

Blanchard said that the evaluation program would allow the FAA inspectors to take a look at each pilot's procedures, records and aircraft and tell the pilot if there are any problems.

"As a courtesy, they'll look at the pilot's certifications and other areas for weaknesses without fear of punitive action," she said. "If they find that anything is out of compliance they would simply let the pilot know."

All in all, Blanchard said that the morning would be a busy and exciting one for the public as well as the visiting pilots.
