With a little bit of luck weather-wise we will start the season of fly-outs every third Saturday morning by flying to Mount Hawley Aux field NNE of Peoria on April 21st.

Mount Hawley identifier is 3MY, it has a runway 18-36 with 4000’ of good asphalt, and it is situated just inside the Class C ring of Peoria. Distance from Lake in the Hills is 103 NM.

The attraction there is Firehouse Pizza just 0.3 miles from the airport, they open at 11 AM on Saturdays, so let us plan to arrive at 3MY at about 10:30 AM, that should give us enough time to get the airplanes squared away and walk to the place. For the last 1/3 of the route you could follow the Illinois River and do a bit of sightseeing.

The FBO is Mt. Hawley Airport; 100LL price is presently $ 4.50 – do plan to buy some fuel there.
