The 2022 Chicken Drop has been scheduled for Sept 29th - October 2nd, 2022. The Chicken Drop briefing will be at 1000 Saturday morning October 1st. You MUST attend the briefing to fly in the drop. You do NOT have to be FAST qualified to fly in the drop.
The event fee will be $25/person. Almost all the other costs for us have been covered by donations from the local populace. At the last Chicken Drop the team spent almost $10,000 on food and booze. I expect this year to be just as good! They plan to have free smoke oil, first come, first serve. We also have a new wagon delivery system with an electric pump. There will be discounted prices on 100LL.
