Go to the Batavia Rotary Club Fly-In Breakfast and tour new airport terminal
The Batavia Rotary Club has announced that its 2016 Fly-In Breakfast will be held Sunday, June 19 (Father’s Day) at the Genesee County Airport, 4701 Saile Drive, Batavia, from 7 a.m. to noon.
Rotarians will cook breakfast for more than 1,500 guests, as well as dozens of pilots who will fly their aircraft to the Batavia airport that morning.
Tickets are $8 for adults; $5 for children ages 4 to 12; and free for children under the age of 4.
Residents throughout Western New York are invited to enjoy breakfast, meet the pilots, and view their aircraft. The Fly-In Breakfast menu will feature sausage, eggs, pancakes, and beverages. Over the years, the volunteer Rotarian-cooks have become known for their “any-way-you-want-them” omelets, which will once again be available. Tickets for the event may be obtained from any member of the Batavia Rotary Club or at the door.
Saile Drive is located just north of the City of Batavia and the Batavia exit of the New York State Thruway, off Route 98.
All proceeds from the event benefit the Batavia Rotary Club’s programs for youth and community programs. Last year, the Club donated more than $100,000 to charitable causes.
Fly-In Breakfast Co-Chair Edmund Leising said that the airport’s expanded facilities may attract more guests this year.
“We’ll have a record number of volunteers hosting and cooking the morning of the 19th,” he said. “Guests will have the chance to talk with pilots, view their aircraft, and see all the changes made at the county airport.”
