EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012 starts next week!
The 60th annual edition of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh will take place July 23-29 at Whitman Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Known as “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration”, Airventure is EAA’s annual membership convention, that celebrates the spirit of aviation and brings together more than 500,000 recreational pilots and aviation enthusiasts from more than 60 countries - all in one place.
For Anyone with a Passion for Aviation...
EAA – Experimental Aircraft Association - was founded in 1953 by a group of individuals with a passion for building their own aircraft. Today the organization welcomes anyone with a desire to share the spirit of aviation - in all its forms - and includes members with a wide range of interests and backgrounds who wish to share their love of flying, building, and restoring recreational aircraft.
EAA has grown into the largest organization of aviation enthusiasts worldwide; offering a global network of organized chapters, activities, events and educational programs to its members.
The World's Largest Event of its Kind
Launched in the same year EAA was founded, AirVenture Oshkosh has grown exponentially. Open to both EAA members and non-members alike, AirVenture Oshkosh has something for everyone, from the aviation novice to the seasoned pilot -- and for all age groups – who will find countless displays, performances and activities provided to entertain, educate and thrill AirVenture attendees.
A Family Event
From daily air shows and aerobatics to forums, workshops and demonstrations, from a Fly-in theater and week-long ‘KidVenture’ activities to an opening-day concert starring the legendary Steve Miller Band, AirVenture 2012 will be a crowd pleaser - with entertainment the whole family can enjoy.
“With its variety of attractions and entertainment options, EAA AirVenture remains one of the great family friendly destinations at an affordable price,” says Rick Larsen, EAA vice president of marketing.
