Spring 2016 Fly-In


The Spring 2016 Fly-In dawned cold, bright, and clear and Saturday February 2016. The YJFC, Clemson Flying Club, and Auburn Flying Team descended on Cherokee County Airport starting around 9:30 am. After everyone was parked we gave the welcome speech and then gave the Fly-In quiz. After a great lunch of hamburgers and brats, grilled by the Grill Master and Interim YJFC President Coty Pinckney, we started the spot landing and balloon drop competitions. After a challenging afternoon or crosswinds and downdrafts we concluded with the group picture and then parted ways until the following semester.
