Exhibit Hangar…E?

If you’ve attended EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in the past, you’re probably familiar with the four large exhibit hangars (A, B, C and D) located just west of AeroShell Square. Offering everything from the latest avionics and gadgets to fashionable attire for the recreational pilot, these exhibit hangars have continued to be a favorable destination among aviation-oriented companies and EAA AirVenture guests alike.

This year, the U.S. Air Force opted not to use the former central exhibit building along the AirVenture flightline for a major exhibit, which gave EAA an opportunity to open more exhibit space in that area just north of the old FAA control tower. The building, appropriately named "Exhibit Hangar E," which longtime EAA AirVenture attendees may recall as an exhibit building until the late 1990s, offers exhibitors additional space to showcase their products and give this year’s attendees another location to shop.

"We’ve been pretty happy with the number of people we’ve seen walk through," said Bryan Smith of Brightline Flight Bags, an exhibitor at the new building. "As word spreads of this new exhibit space, we expect things to pick up even further."

Sponsored by Carrier Air Conditioners (so you know it’s cool inside), Exhibit Hangar E has excellent proximity to the outdoor homebuilt display area, the forums pavilions, and the new "Affordable Flying Center." So if you’re in that vicinity and feel like shopping, talking to a few exhibitors, or just taking a break from the sun, stop by and check out EAA AirVenture’s latest exhibit building.
