Finance Solutions Administered by National Aircraft Finance Company EAA Experimenter 7 IN THE DEAD OF winter with the holidays fi rmly in the rear-view mirror, life can get pretty gloomy in East-Central Wisconsin. Thank goodness for EAA's annual Skiplane Fly-In, which brings together aviation enthusiasts for a day of hangar fl ying, camara- derie, and of course, potentially dozens of skiplanes. This year's event is scheduled for Saturday, February 7, at EAA's Pioneer Airport. Most of the airplanes arrive (weather and runway conditions permitting) mid-morning and stay until mid-afternoon. In case weather or snow conditions do not permit aircraft arrivals at Pioneer Airport, other activities will continue as planned, including complimentary chili lunch and cake to celebrate the 62nd anniversary of the fi rst meeting of the Experimental Aircraft Association, January 26, 1953, at Curtiss-Wright Field, Milwaukee. Pilots who wish to participate still have time to register, but must receive approval and fl ight briefi ngs from EAA prior to landing at Pioneer Airport. Contact EAA's Olivia Rasmus at 920-426-6599 or at orasmus@eaa.org for more information. The Skiplane Fly-In runs from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is free of charge to the general public. Signs will direct visitors to the skiplane area upon arrival to the museum. Shuttle services will also operate from Basler Flight Service for those landing at Wittman Regional Airport. Regular admission rates apply for guests visiting the museum itself. Skiplanes to Descend on Pioneer Airport February 7 Photography by Jason Toney
