Sunriver Resort to Host Wings & Wheels Airport Fly-In

The 19th Annual Wings and Wheels Charity Fly-In will take place on Saturday, July 27 at the Sunriver Airport from 7:30-11:30am.  Antiques enthusiasts, airplane aficionados and pancake connoisseurs of all ages are invited to the local fundraiser, which features a no-admission antique car show, specialty airplane showcase, biplane rides, helicopter tours, aerial demonstrations and many more family-friendly activities.

Airplanes showcased at past Fly-Ins include a 1955 T-34 Mentor, 1941 Interstate Cadet, 1943 North American T-6, 1953 Cessna 170, 1929 New Standard Biplane (rides available!) and a 1933 Waco. Featured among the 100 antique cars on display will be a 1929 Essex, 1928 Ford, 1923 Dodge Roadster and a 1956 Ford Thunderbird.

The event is free to the public, with tickets to the Special Recipe Pancake Breakfast (beginning at 7:30am) available at a cost of $8 for adults, $5 for kids ages 11-16, and free for children 10 and under.

More than 2,000 guests are expected, including participants from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Nevada, Hawaii, Canada and beyond. The Pancake Breakfast benefits New Generations Child Care, raising thousands of dollars annually for the Sunriver child care center, which provides grants and support for area low-income families.
