For This month's breakfast fly-out, we plan to fly to Tri County Regional airport at Lone Rock WI. The Identifier is KLNR, it has a runway 9/27 with 5000’ of good asphalt, and a much shorter crosswind runway – 18/36 with 1850’ available. Distance from Lake in the Hills is 103 NM on a 313 track.
Maxwell Hagberg is our $1,000 Scholarship Winner. Max was chosen from a list of five excellent candidates through a blind system of 2 votes for first choice and 1 vote for second choice by our Board members. (Paul’s idea and it worked out very well). Max is a member of CAP and has shown school leadership as well as currently taking Flight Instruction at Blue Skies. Max is pursuing a career in Aviation Flying. The Scholarship funds have been paid directly to the Flight Training facility Max has chosen. These scholarships are funded by our annual Pancake Breakfast. CONGRATULATIONS MAX!
Do you still need to add ADS-B capability to your aircraft? The rebate is BACK!
The FAA on Oct. 12 reopened the $500 rebate program to support Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out equipage. The program that had ended in September 2017 will now close Oct. 11, 2019. The agency is making $4.9 million available under the new rebate program, which will help to fund 9,792 new ADS-B Out installations.

On our monthly fly-out in November to Watertown, WI, we discovered the Perkins restaurant adjacent to the airport is closed. There is a nice restaurant called 'The Spot' which is about 1 mile north on RT 26. In nice weather a nice walk from the airport, or use the crew car if available.

The FBO there now charges a $ 10 parking fee, - they call it Ramp Fee – this is new, never did that before. The fee is waived if you buy at least 10 gallons of fuel. Present price is 4.28 per gallon.
