July 27, 2009 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin - I’ve been chairman of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh for more than 30 years. Without question, this is one of the finest lineups of airplanes and programs we have ever presented to EAA members, their families and guests, and the worldwide aviation community.

“Oshkosh” has become aviation’s buffet. There is something for everyone, and everyone leaves with something they will remember. For firsttime visitors, I hope your visit exceeds expectations. For Oshkosh veterans, it’s a chance to renew friendships and enjoy the wide variety of airplanes on the flightline.

We are proud that Oshkosh is recognized globally as one of aviation’s premier events. We maintain a unique niche in the aviation-event community because Oshkosh represents aviation’s “big tent.” All aspects of aviation innovation and technology are brought together for one week in Oshkosh, but the impact extends throughout the year. This weeklong celebration serves as a major economic catalyst for the industry while making it possible for people to act on their dreams by providing an opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills that turn spectators into participants.

People, planes, participation, and passion…it all comes together here. Thanks for being a part of the “Oshkosh Experience.” Enjoy!

Join the discussion!

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
