Chapter 790

Lake In The Hills Airport (3CK), Lake In The Hills IL.

                                              

Welcome to the website of the Lake in the Hills chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association 

 

Our Next Event - Young Eagles Rally At Lake In The Hills Airport Saturday, June 2

Chapter members will once again be donating their time and aircraft to provide introductory aircraft rides.  All kids between the ages of 8 and 17 are eligible. Registration forms are available at the rally, and must be signed by the child's parent or legal guardian.

Registration begins at 8:00, and flights are normally conducted from 8:30 until noon.  As available slots tend to fill up quickly, an early arrival is suggested. 

Our ability to fly will be weather dependent.  You can check on the status of the rally by calling (224) 484-7163 on Friday evening.

Tom LeGates  3/6/18

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.

From Ole 6/20/2017......

I flew to Milwaukee’s Timmerman Airport today with George Haupt and George Roby.

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.
