Saturday, December 21st will be a special day in Everglades City and at the airport.
Beginning at 10AM Chuck Gretzke will be hosting a free pancake and sausage breakfast until noon.
Afterwards the FAA Safety Team will present a program on water survival featuring Amy Laboda an ATP licensed, CFII-MEI will hold an safety seminar on Water Survival and how to prepare for overwater flights. Ms. Laboda actually lost an engine in a single engine aircraft while flying to the Cayman Islands and ditched her aircraft South of Cuba. Her story along with the course materials should make for an interesting presentation. Chuck Gretzke ATP, CFII-MEI will be there at 10 with a free pancake and sausage breakfast for all attendees at the Everglades City Airpark.
Later, you and your passengers can rent a bike to ride to the airboats or call a restaurant for pickup or just tour the town and maybe stick around for the annual boat parade down the Barron River and ending up at the Oyster House Restaurant, just down the road from the airport. You may even want to rent a room for the night and join in the post parade party with food, drinks, and a DJ until 11PM.
