Snow, Or No Snow...

there will be plenty of snow on the ground... but even if the
ground is dry, the Experimental Aircraft Association won't let that
get in the way of a festive fly-in on the grounds of Wittman
The annual EAA Skiplane Fly-In will be held on Saturday, January
27 -- snow or no snow -- at EAA’s Pioneer Airport..
The EAA reports if there is enough snow on the ground, an
impressive array of skiplanes will be welcomed. If the ground
remains bare but firm, wheeled airplanes will be allowed to
Complimentary chili and cake to celebrate the birthday of
EAA’s matriarch, Audrey Poberezny, will be served at Pioneer
Airport beginning at 10:30 am.
Everyone is welcome to this free-of-charge event, so put on your
best winter clothes and get out to the airport!
Those driving in to the event can simply follow the signs to
Pioneer Airport. Pilots intending to fly-in must contact Sean
