The Sun Lakes Aero Club completed its first fly-in breakfast of the year on January 18 when eight members and guests flew to Ryan Field. Pilots and their passengers included Eldon Smith in Ken Carpenter’s Grumman AA-1B, Jack Hite in Mark Weiss’ Piper Archer, Paul Beeks in his Bellanca Cruismaster, Hank Beliema and Joe Igelmund in Dick Simmons’ Cessna Skylane and J.R. Scheidereiter in Gary Vacin’s Grumman AA1.

The club has scheduled a fly-in to Eloy in February and is planning field trips to Casa Grande to visit Gosshawk’s aircraft restoration company and possibly a tour to Luke AFB this spring.
