Advance purchase of AirVenture 2011 admission and camping is now available on the AirVenture website, and this year you can pre-purchase camping at AirVenture's Camp Scholler for all arrival dates. The 59th AirVenture takes place July 25-31 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
With rates remaining the same as last year, EAA members and non-members can make pre-purchases via a secure website, allowing ticket holders to speed through the admissions process. Both daily and weekly admissions are available, as is the ability to join EAA and immediately receive the best possible admission prices available only to EAA members. Discounts are available to those who pre-purchase AirVenture tickets online before June 15, 2011, including $2 on daily adult admissions and $5 on weekly adult admissions. Click here to get started.
Camp Scholler opens on June 24, 2011, and those who make advance purchase for camping get the convenience of express registration at the campground entrance, including specially designated lines on peak arrival dates.
Advance admission ticketing is made possible through support from Jeppesen.
"Camp Scholler visitors can now conveniently pre-purchase, no matter when they plan on arriving," said Rick Larsen, EAA vice president of marketing. "Our objective for advance purchase camping continues to be delivering a faster check-in process, so attendees can get to the fun even faster."
Also new for 2011, attendees can pre-purchase flights on EAA's 1929 Ford Tri-Motor and avoid the lines before taking a ride in the first mass-produced airliner. AirVenture flights aboard EAA's B-17 Aluminum Overcast will again be available for advance purchase.
"Tens of thousands of aviation enthusiasts have enjoyed the greater convenience and discounts advance purchase has provided since it was introduced in 2008," Larsen said. "We continue to look for ways to streamline and improve the purchasing and admission process, enabling attendees to get the most out of AirVenture every year."
Advance purchase EAA AirVenture tickets also make great Christmas and holiday gifts, and allow recipients to enjoy many months of anticipation prior to their own Oshkosh experience. The advance-purchase option is also a unique gift idea for aviation enthusiasts. While buying admission tickets and camping, online purchasers can also select from limited edition AirVenture merchandise.
EAA AirVenture 2011 has been classified a Tier 1 event by the U.S. Navy as it celebrates the Centennial of Naval Aviation throughout next year. Several top-level attractions and events will commemorate this notable anniversary as well as 100th anniversary of air mail service.
