2017 Fly In Pancake Breakfast
The Bancroft Flying Club held it's annual Fly In Pancake Breakfast at the Bancroft Community Airport on Sunday, July 9th. We had 40 aircraft fly in and we served 503 pancake breakfasts with sausage and real maple syrup. This was our first Fly In Pancake Breakfast since all the renovations were completed to the Terminal Building. We received a lot of positive comments and praise for the work we had accomplished.
The weather co-operated with few clouds but a good breeze from the west made for a bumpy approach to runway 30.
The flow of guests for breakfast was steady throughout the morning and there was little or no waiting in line for breakfast including the pilots and their passengers who flew in and had their own dedicated line for breakfast.
There was plenty of parking for our drive in quests on the airport property and plenty of parking for fly in guests.
Following are a few photo's from this years event.
