Friday Lunch on the Fly

What’s better than food and airplanes? Maybe lots of food and lots of airplanes? From April to October every year, join us on the 4th Friday of the month between 11 am and 1 pm (Central).  In 2019, we averaged 85 people and 18 planes each week! There’s no cost, but a $5 donation is appreciated. Check back in 2020 – and get a Lunch on the Fly schedule. Every week there’s an airport in the Northern Indiana area that hosts a Lunch on the Fly.
