2014 SCBC Schedule

Our Santa Fly-in for 2013 was yet another success!

Santa arrived right on schedule and took his seat at the head of the room. After calling each child by name and presenting them with a gift, something they had on their list, everyone went home happy and we had completed the task we set out to accomplish. This event has become one looked forward to by many families in the area with people requesting information in early November. With food and hot chocolate to fill their tummies, the excitement of Santa's arrival and Christmas music in the background, kids really have a great time. This was the 6th year we have sponsored this event and from the crowd we have each year it will probably continue to be a hit in the coming years. If you haven't attended one and live close the area, plan to attend the 2014 event. Besides, who said we had to be a kid to enjoy Santa??

Thanks to all the members that made this event possible. A special thanks to Kurt for being "Rudolf" in the BT-13 leading Santa safely into OGB, to Augusta Fiberglass for providing the Citation for Santa to make the trip in and Richie and Carroll for providing pilot services for this trip. Most of all, thanks to "Santa" and all his little helpers. Without the "main man", none of this would have been possible!

See you all again in December of 2014!! Have a great year!

In the constant rush of today's world, we all seem to lose contact of our priorities. Read the story of 1000 Marbles and maybe it will help put things back in order!


The Experimental Aircraft Association is an organization that promotes all forms of recreational aviation. It was started in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antique and classic aircraft, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters and commercially manufactured aircraft.

This organization brings people together with an interest in recreational aviation, facilitating social interaction and information sharing between aviation enthusiasts. Many of the services that EAA offers provide valuable support resources for those that wish develop and improve various skills related to aircraft construction and restoration, piloting, aviation safety, and aviation education.

EAA is a national organization with local chapters all over the world. Information is shared through various publications, chapter newsletters, websites, air shows, and numerous other programs. .

You don't have to be a pilot or aircraft owner to be a member of EAA. You can find different ways to fulfill your aviation interest, whether it's visiting the world's premier aviation event . . . EAA AirVenture Oshkosh or participating in EAA's Young Eagles (which has given one million kids an airplane ride.)
