Jerry Griggs is having a Fly-in (Kansas)

Jerry Griggs has been a supporter of our lady taildraggers organization for a long time – practically  since I posted the first lady taildragger pilot (that would be me!!).  Jerry’s a cool guy and sent an email inviting all the lady taildragger pilots to his fly-in on Saturday, October 8. If you’re anywhere near Goddard, Kansas please stop by and say hello to Jerry – and grab something good to eat while you’re there!

Please join us at Lake Waltanna Airfield for pancakes, hamburgers and brats.  The Griggs-Mardis Fly-in will be on October 8th starting about 8AM until sunset.  Fly, drive, walk or bicycle but please come. 

  • Lake Waltanna is SN65 in your flight planning software
  • GPS coordinates are N37.5900 W097.6000
  • 2100′ grass
  • Right traffic for runway 17
  • Left traffic for runway 35
  • Monitor 122.9
  • If driving, we are at 17 Lakeridge Drive, Goddard, KS. 67052
Jerry once sent me this picture and note, “ If you ever come through Kansas, let us know.  I could arrange for a flight in a Learjet simulator for you.  Sorry, the Learjet’s have nosewheels.”

I told you he was a cool guy!! I gotta get my butt out there!!

    What a bummer, Jerry but you still had a nice turnout. Odds are with you for next year and I hope to be there!!

    We’ve been praying for rain since March & we finally got it on the day of our fly-in. Wisely no one flew in. Storms with hail were only about 12 nm west. But we did have about 50 people show up driving in for pancakes and/or hamburgers. So it was a qualified success. Better luck next year?

    ‘Lake’ sounds nice. I’ll have to look it up online.
