The Spanish Fork Airport Manager, Cris Child, not only manages the airport for Spanish Fork, but he is also a pilot and aviation enthusiast.

He is always thinking of ways to promote the airport and of course the biggest public examples have been the annual Airplanes, Trains, and Automobiles event.

That event will be renamed Wings and Wheels and is now scheduled for Sept. 26.

Child has come forward with another idea, a monthly airport breakfast for pilots, airport users, and aviation enthusiasts.

This idea was put on hold for a few months due to COVID-19  and the social distancing guidelines.

With social distancing policies loosening up, a breakfast was held June 20. Local EAA Chapter 753 cooked a breakfast of pancakes, scrambled eggs, and bacon.

The breakfast was free, but donations were welcomed.

The aviation enthusiast community was ready to mingle with one another and share their passion for flying machines.

Sixty-five people showed up for the breakfast. Donations exceed the cost of the food, and the excess $100 will be donated to the Gail S. Halvorsen Aviation Education Center proposed by the local Civil Air Patrol Squadron. (Helmick is a Serve Daily contributor.)
