Scheduled For Waupaca Municipal Airport, July 24-26
The Cessna Flyer and Piper Flyer Associations are inviting all
Cessna and Piper pilots to fly in to Waupaca Municipal Airport
(KPCZ) in Waupaca, Wisconsin for the associations' Annual
Gathering. The Gathering will be held the weekend preceding EAA
AirVenture Oshkosh, July 24-26, 2009 at the groups' headquarters,
better known as "The Blue Hangar."
"This will be the fifth year we've held a fly-in for our members
here in Waupaca," explained Trevor Janz, the organization's vice
president and co-founder. "It's a casual, fun weekend, but we also
want to make it very informative and educational. Giving our
members information they can use to get more enjoyment out of their
airplanes is our associations' primary goal."
The educational sessions will be held on Saturday and Sunday
mornings from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The current lineup of
presentations includes representatives from GAMI Injectors, Forward
Vision infrared technology, and Dr. Bruce Chien, AME.
"Holding the presentations in the mornings gives attendees and
their families the afternoons free to enjoy golf packages, spa
packages, antiques shopping, fishing, fly-outs or just to relax
here at the Blue Hangar," Janz said. "The Gathering is a great time
to get to know other members and share experiences. It's hangar
flying at its best."
"Landing at Waupaca also gives our members the opportunity to park
their airplanes here and take our motor coach into Oshkosh Monday
through Wednesday," Janz added. "The attendance fee includes
shuttle service to and from the airport and to local hotels."
Registration for this three-day event is the same as last year-
just $85. Janz said the registration fee also includes dinner on
Friday night and lunch on Saturday and Sunday. Aviation movies with
popcorn and beverages will be offered on Friday night. The social
highlight of the weekend is a real Wisconsin Brat Fry and Corn
Roast on Saturday night. Janz added that discounted rates for
hotels and under-wing camping reservations are available. Rental
car delivery to Waupaca Airport can also be arranged.
