Saturday’s Fly-In & Breakfast gave the opportunity for 79 children and chaperones to soar over Grant County.
Four seasoned pilots, Bob Bagett, Frank Stinett, Robert Watt and Doug Ferguson of Grant County Air Search provided 33 flights in all.
Tom Berry, also a longtime pilot with the air search crew, showed visitors his plane, discussing airplanes and aviation.
Ron Lundbom flew his ultralight over the event with a candy drop for the children, and Dave Traylor did a flyby in his powered parachute with the United States flag.
Children also had the opportunity to examine a Blue Mountain Hospital District ambulance.
The Forest Service opened their helicopter simulators for exploration, and Oregon Department of Forestry conducted a water drop from one of their helicopters pouring out 343 gallons of water.
The Snafflebit Dinner House offered a breakfast menu.
“We had a great turnout this year, and the weather was perfect for flying,” said airport manager Haley Walker who organized the event.
