The Kingdom Pilots Association is sponsoring a pancake breakfast Saturday at the Fulton Elton Hensley Memorial Airport.

David Hollabaugh, treasurer of the Kingdom Pilots Association at the Elton Hensley Memorial Airport, said the association holds a breakfast every year with the exception of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is the 31st annual pancake breakfast and fly-in at the airport.

The event runs from 7-11 a.m. and is open to the public.

The breakfast is all you can eat, including pancakes, sausage, eggs, coffee and orange juice. Donations at the event can be in any amount; all donations benefit KPA student pilot scholarship fund.

"The proceeds go to awarding scholarships for flight training for area youth," Hollabaugh said.

Scholarships are each in the amount of $1,500, and if a student chooses to take their lessons at Jefferson City Flying Service, JCFS matches 10 percent.

Hollabauh said one to three scholarships are awarded.

There will be a flour drop competition starting at 11 a.m. and a silent auction.

Hollabaugh said flour is dropped out of an airplane to try to hit the closest target. The closest to hitting the target wins.

Aircraft will be on display, and there will be yard games.

Depending on the weather, Hollabaugh said there will be airplanes flying in, the Staff for Life helicopter from the University of Missouri and a Fulton Fire Department truck at Saturday's event.
