Want your eggs scrambled or over easy? Shown are Noah and his dad Doug Smith. They’ve been cracking eggs during the Canyon Pilots Association breakfast for several years and are planning to do so again this year.

The Canyon Pilots Association Memorial Day Weekend All-You-Can-Eat Fly-In Breakfast is Sunday, May 29 at the Grand Canyon Regional Airport at 112 Runway Road, Wellsboro, PA 16901. The breakfast is open to the public and will be held rain or shine. Parking is free with handicapped parking available.

Pilots in various types of full-size aircraft will fly to the airport for the breakfast, weather permitting.

“People who attend are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to join family members and friends outdoors to watch airplanes land and takeoff while they chat,” said Tom Freeman, an association member.

On the menu are ham, eggs, buckwheat pancakes, coffee and orange juice. Requested is a donation of $10 for adults and $5 for youngsters ages 3 to 8 years old. Children 2 and under will be admitted free.

During the breakfast, visitors can try out the airport’s Redbird TD-2 flight simulator for free in the terminal. Software for all public airports in the United States, including the Wellsboro airport is installed on the simulator. It can be configured as a simple single engine airplane up to a complex, high performance aircraft.

Members of the Canyon Country Ultralight Club will assist with the breakfast and have a display of ultralight aircraft outdoors.

The Mountain Modelaires will display radio controlled airplanes and helicopters.

For more information about the May 29 breakfast or flight instruction scholarships for youth, 16 and older, email Tom Freeman at av8slow@gmail.com.
