Help Grand County youth pursue careers in aviation, watch private planes fly, and enjoy a hearty pancake breakfast at the same time. The annual fly-in is sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association. Grand County Chapter 1267 will be held on Saturday, July 6, at the Granby Airport.

Starting at 7 a.m., visitors can enjoy pancakes, sausages, coffee and orange juice on the tarmac. They can also visit the Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum and watch planes landing and taking off. The event lasts until 10 a.m. and the museum stays open until 11 a.m.

Pilots from across Colorado will show off their wings – kids and adults can even get behind the controls themselves. The event will include a silent auction with proceeds benefiting the Young Eagles program, which gives youth ages 8 to 17 their first free flight in an airplane to inspire younger generations to become pilots.



Proceeds from the event also fund scholarships for local graduates and help youth attend the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Air Academy summer camps. These camps are held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Oshkosh is the home of the association’s Air Academy and a gathering place for aspiring pilots from across the country.

In 2024, the organization will send eight children to summer camp in Oshkosh and sponsor eight scholarships for college students pursuing careers in aviation.



Chapter 1267 is Grand County’s affiliation with the Experimental Aircraft Association, which offers flight lessons, training camps and other opportunities nationwide. For more information, visit Chapters.Eaa.org/Eaa1267.
