Fly-in pancake breakfast on May 17
MAYFIELD TWP. — If you or your children have an interest in aviation, the morning of May 17 would be a great time to visit the DuPont-Lapeer Airport for its annual pancake breakfast.
Visitors can enjoy breakfast and an up-close look at a variety of aircraft including a “working” crop duster.
This year, Lapeer Aviation and Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1303 are excited to announce that the University of Michigan Survival Flight helicopter will be on hand for visitors to check out.
For more than 30 years these life-saving helicopters have been used to safely transport more than 57,000 patients to and from accidents and hospitals throughout our area and all over the state of Michigan. It’s a fine example of aviation serving our communities. In addition, a Lapeer Fire & Rescue truck will be on hand along with “Sparky” the fire dog, and a Lapeer County EMS ambulance and transport van will be there too. Because the event is fly-in or drivein, visitors will have plenty of opportunities to watch small aircraft take off and land at the airport, which is always an exciting sight for the younger crowd.
The breakfast takes place from 7:30-11:30 a.m. and costs $7 for adults, $4 for children age 5-10 and kids under the age of 5 eat for free. DuPont-Lapeer Airport is at 1232 Roods Lake Road in Mayfield Township. Call 810-664-6966 for more information.
