Places to Fly: Stanstead/Weller


Stanstead/Weller Airport in southern Quebec will hold its annual fly-in Sept. 9. Also known as Weller Farm, the airport is privately owned and welcomes visitors to the farm all summer. Last year, the fly-in attracted more than 30 aircraft. Aircraft arrive starting about 10 a.m. there is an organic corn boil and burger picnic available for $15. At 1:30 there’s a group discussion on the concept of creating an open border between the U.S. and Canada like the European Shengen Area, in which 26 member countries allow free travel among themselves with no border or passport inspections.
