EAA Chapter 328 hosts seventh annual Colfax Fly-In sponsored by Port of Whitman

COLFAX — The seventh annual Colfax Fly-In and Pancake Breakfast will take place 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, September 24, at the Port of Business Air Center, 707 Flight Line Drive, in Colfax. 

The free, family-friendly event features a myriad of aircraft displays – from experimental to antique, a civil air patrol flight simulation and classic car show. In addition, the Colfax Rotary Club will serve a pancake, sausage and scrambled egg breakfast for $9 per person.

Since its inception, the event has seen about 240 airplanes and helicopters and an estimated 1,450 visitors, according to Fly-In Coordinator Barney Buckley. After the event was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, about 160 people and 40 aircraft turned out for last year’s Fly-In. 

The event is organized by the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 328 of Lewiston, Idaho and sponsored by the Port of Whitman County. As the owner-operator of Port of Whitman Business Air Center, the Port supports opportunities to educate the community about aviation and its value to the region’s multimodal transportation system. During the Fly-In, Port will have an informational display on planned improvements to the Port of Whitman Business Air Center.
