Representatives of 15 government agencies from the United States, Canada, and the Bahamas met at EAA headquarters this week to plan AirVenture's International Federal Partnership (IFP) activities at AirVenture 2011. This will be the 21st consecutive year IFP agencies will gather in the Federal Pavilion, which is located on the flightline next to the Sky Shoppe.

Throughout AirVenture, the Federal Pavilion features several exhibits, display aircraft, informational demonstrations, and interactive displays. Visitors can attend forum presentations and live demonstrations, as well as learn more about the various missions of the government agencies.
