- based at Dry Creek Airport
|On Saturday, November
2010, the Skinner Road Airport Community Association (SCARA) once
more hosted its annual open house for the people in our community.
gives our neighbors the opportunity to learn about aviation, the
airport, and meet the people who fly and live here.
Drinks and hot dogs were provided, the weather was just about
picture perfect! Once again
quite a few people turned out. There were free airplane rides for children 8-17 (with parental signature)
through the EAA Young
Eagle Program plus many Static Displays with several warbirds to
see, including some different ones.
An all-time record of Young Eagle flights was set for us this year (96 flew)!
Many kudos need to go to our wonderful staff who streamlined the
sign-up and aircraft/pilot assignments. It was a huge job handling
96 excited youngesters!
The stuffed animal drop once more proved popular for the younger children not
eligible for airplane rides.
We also need to thank the Cy-Fair VFD this year for bringing the
fire truck for display. The firefighter in full gear also proved to
be a popular photo-op with the kids!
