EAA Chapter 790

Lake in The Hills Airport (3CK), Lake in The Hills, Illinois

Chapter 790 Event Calendar

June 2021 Events

  • The June monthly fly out will be on the 19th. There have been a few changes to the fly out schedule with more short trips to make scheduling easier. This month we are planning to venture about 42nm north to Palmyra, WI (88C) to visit one of the nicest grass runways out there. Plan to meet at Palmyra at 10am. There is a little diner called the Edge of Town Cafe which is a brief walk from the airport. 

    Josh Cannata is trying something a bit different to organize RSVPs via a Google Form that you access here. If you have any questions let him know and he'd be happy to help. Also, there's a field where you can add your comments/concerns/complaints/jokes if you want to voice your opinion or just test if we'll actually read the replies. Please RSVP by Friday morning if you can!

  • Our June member meeting will be held on the 22nd.  We will be meeting in Ted Lipinski's hangar again (P60), and grilled items will be available after 6. Our presenter will be chapter member Mike Perkins, who will discuss ideas about firewall foreward designs for aircraft safety. This meeting will not be hybrid, so plan to join us at the LITH airport for some good food and conversation. Formal meeting begins at 7.

2021 Coming Events - Tentative Schedule

Member Meetings - 4th Tuesday at 6:30 PM unless otherwise noted

For the next few months, meetings will be held over Zoom (February) or may be hybrid (Zoom/live) until May, when we will begin our food service at the hangar. Food service starts at around 6:00 p.m. with the meeting to follow at 7.

 Board Meetings

Held at the Lake In The Hills airport office unless otherwise noted, alternate months beginning in February at 6:30 PM. Alternatively, some meetings may be virtual via Zoom.

Young Eagle Rallies

Held at Lake In The Hills Airport on the first Saturday, May through October, beginning at 8:30 AM.

This year's rally dates are 5/1, 6/5, 7/3, 8/7, 9/4 and 10/2,

Rallies are weather dependent, and our schedule may also be impacted if further virus concerns arise.

Breakfast Fly-outs

We try to fly-out on the third Saturday of each month, with details announced shortly before each event. Josh Cannata and Taylor Thompson are leading our monthly fly out program this year.  They have some really great ideas on places to fly and things to do....once of course COVID is behind us.  So, until then we know attendance will be light and our destinations are also limited.  Below is our proposed schedule for 2021.
