Canyon Pilot's Host Labor Day Breakfast at N38
The Canyon Pilots Association, based at the Wellsboro Johnston airport in Wellsboro Pa., hosted their annual Labor Day fly-in breakfast Aug. 31 2014. According to one source who has was involved in the original fly-in breakfast held at the airport, the breakfast has never been rained out in its 47 year history. Mother nature came close to challenging that record today. The pilots prevailed over the weather and served approx. 600 guests their famous buckwheat pancakes, eggs, ham and service with a smile.
Umbrellas were in order as the crowd wandered the ramp on a warm, wet, last day of August.
These two pilots were the only guys who arrived by airplane today. Rumor has it that they are still sitting in their Cub somewhere near the airport waiting for some VFR weather.
The Mountain Modelairs RC Club were busy talking to attendees about their aircraft and club. They have some pretty cool aircraft.

A good crowd, not a large crowd, but a good crowd considering the weather

Make plans now to join us for the fun on Memorial Day Sunday 2015. We will have airplane rides, helicopter rides, lots of inbound aircraft all weather permitting but one thing we will have for sure is great food, friendly faces and good fellowship. Invite a friend and join the Canyon Pilots Association for a unique experience in Pennsylvania's Canyon Country!!
