Last month, students from Joseph Charter School presented a slideshow at the Wallowa County Pilots Association Banquet. At this event pilots and people who love flying began to plan the 2017 Wallowa County Flyin and Pancake Breakfast at Joseph Airport on August 12.
The Flyin is growing into a fundraiser for the North East Oregon Aviation Education Foundation, which financially supports Wallowa County education in aviation that will lead to careers in that industry.
At the banquet, we enjoyed videos of last year's Flyin. But the two students pictured above really made our hearts soar with their presentation. A slideshow of educational activities at the Joseph Charter School, with students machining sheet metal and building drones, brought excitement and smiles from the audience about this new endeavor.
Here are a few photos from the WC Flyin. Mark your calendar: August 12, 2017. I hope to see you there! (Photos below are courtesy of the Wallowa County Flyin.)
