Wrens Georgia Fly-In Sept 16

Postby Sandy170 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 2:13 pm

This Cessna 170 owner and fellow members from EAA 172 of Augusta, Georgia, are participating in the Fall Fly-In at beautiful Wrens Memorial Airport (C5J) CTAF 122.7 on Saturday, September 16th. Many gyrocopters will be on display, too!

Peach State Rotorcraft organization lists this event beginning 11:00am on Friday Sept 15 through midnight on Saturday Sept 16. On Saturday there will be a Bar-B-Q lunch which will start serving around noon and run until about 1:00 pm. The donation for this delicious meal will be only $6. Refreshments available the remainder of the day.

Though the main activities are on Saturday, you may come earlier in the week if you wish. On Saturday there will be food vendors on the field. Packing-up day on Sunday. Pattern for the asphalt main runway, is left-hand pattern for runway 29 and right-hand for runway 11 at 1450' MSL (1000 ft AGL) unless flying an ultralight or rotorcraft which should use 950' MSL (500' AGL). The parallel grass strip will have a right-hand pattern. CTAF/UNICOM 122.7 mhz. Runway lights on from dusk to dawn. Field elevation 450 feet. GPS: N33° 13.36' W82° 23.02'. Runway 11/29 is 3000' long. No fuel available, so plan accordingly.

Airport has comfortable pilot lounge with refrigerator, microwave, couches, two restrooms, and hot shower. Motorhomes are welcome. Five restaurants and a motel is adjacent to the airport at the end of runway 29. Note that those places that are "adjacent" are really adjacent! Pilots often taxi past the end of runway 29 and park in a plane parking area. Then they walk to the adjacent places. For example, the Ingles supermarket and Deli is only 300 feet from where they parked their plane.

FLYMART -- During the week. No charge to display, just bring your stuff and sell for $$$
• Saturday, September 16: Food vendors with delicious snacks and drinks.
• Sunday, September 17: PACK UP AND LEAVE DAY for those who stayed overnight.
