Let’s turn it out for Gerald!

Every other Sunday since 1938…

…pilots and aviation enthusiasts have met for breakfast at an airport somewhere in South Carolina and a few surrounding states – missing only events during World War II when aircraft fuel was not available.  Pilots are a resourceful bunch and figured out how to fly by running their airplanes on car gas. The Breakfast Club resumed meetings two years later and continues to this day.

Take a look at our 2018 Schedule.
We may be at an airport somewhere near you!

(Aircraft on our banner is a Cessna O-1 Bird Dog owned by Rick and Kathy Hegenberger based at KJZI.)

How It Works

There are no dues and no meeting requirements.
Attend once and you are a member for life.
The only rule is to fly safe.

Breakfast is around $6 – $10 per plate, is ready about 9am, and there is always plenty.

Fly in or drive to the airport, belly up and talk aircraft, aviation, or anything else,
to your heart’s content.

Pilot or non-pilot, everyone is welcome!
