July 18, 2013 - For the third year, Sporty's has created a free EAA AirVenture Oshkosh app for Apple iOS and Android devices (phones and tablets, including Kindle Fire), and both versions are now available for download.
With the Sporty's AirVenture app, you'll have convenient access to all the information needed to get you ready before and during The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
"With literally thousands of exhibitors, airplanes, workshops, forums, talks, social gatherings, and displays, you have to approach AirVenture with a plan," says Sporty's Vice President John Zimmerman. "Spend some time organizing your visit, stick your phone in your pocket, and you're set."
Sporty's free AirVenture app includes all the maps, times, locations, and schedules for The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration in one place. Use this data to build your own experience with "My Schedule." It's easy and fun to make an hour-by-hour itinerary, with only the events you want to attend.
You can also access EAA news for last-minute changes and updates, Twitter feeds, and EAA Radio. The interactive exhibitor list and grounds map is a user favorite capability, allowing you to pinpoint the exact location of a display and group your must-see events and attractions geographically. The app also includes driving instructions and detailed parking information. You can even purchase admission in advance via the app.
The complete EAA AirVenture NOTAM is included for arrival and departure procedures as well as a convenient Understanding AirVenture ATC Guide and even special FBO offers.
