EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedOhio EAAer Wins Oshkosh365 'Ultimate Oshkosh Experience'
Gerry Hornick will experience Oshkosh in "ultimate" style this year.
A couple weeks back, Gerry Hornick, of Chardon, Ohio, was in Virginia picking up his Cherokee 180, which had just undergone an engine overhaul. Back home his wife took a call from EAA headquarters that Gerry was the winner in the Ultimate Oshkosh Experience contest conducted through EAA's online community, Oshkosh365.

"It's the first time I've ever really won anything of value," said Gerry, EAA 724125. "I can't tell you how happy I am." Gerry and a guest will receive airfare, weekly admission, exclusive access and more to make this the VIP trip of a lifetime.

The drawing was held among the 36,000 people who had signed up for Oshkosh365 by the end of 2009. Gerry signed up in the EAA Welcome Center at AirVenture, and Oshkosh365 has since grown to more than 48,000 members.

Gerry took up flying after he retired about 10 years ago, and soon joined EAA. He made his first visit to Oshkosh three years ago and had planned to return this year. His son, Steve, will accompany him to Oshkosh, where Gerry plans to look at several light-sport aircraft.

"I'm really looking forward to it," Gerry said.

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