Central Texas Squadron, Chapter 1347, of the
Experimental Aircraft Association and the host airport,
Fayette Regional Air Center, jointly prepare a BBQ
luncheon/fly-in on the first Saturday of every month for
the local area residents and pilots from all over the
weather days, as many as 70 aircraft of different types
fly to La Grange for the fellowship and excellent BBQ.
At various times during the year, car clubs from Austin,
Houston and Dallas also attend to show their prize
vehicles from the Model T to the Ferrari and form the
Corvette to the T-Bird.
Regional Air Center is a county/city operated airport so
there are no fees or charge for admittance. However, a
$5 donation is suggested for the luncheon. Serving is
from 11 am to 1 p.m. for BBQ brisket, sausage, beans,
salads and all the condiments, as well as ice tea and
donations and gifts go toward funding scholarships for
local students entering into aviation-related studies.
Thus far, $15,000 has been awarded through this unique,
fun flying-related activity. Mark your calendar and
come out and join us!
