Experimental Aircraft Association. I used to be a member and have been to Oshkosh in the past.

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

Yes I am going http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I will be there for the whole week this year, and I am stoked. Camping on the grounds with a bunch of old engineers and pilots is always a great time. This is the first time I'll be there for the entire week, last 3 times I've been (the only 3) I've only been there for 4 days max.

Looking forward to it, my flight leaves Monday morning at 6am. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Some of the many things I'm looking forward to seeing:
Masters of Disaster (http://www.airventure.org/2004/news/040420_franklin.html)
SuperConnie (http://www.skydive182.com/pages/fun/about/air_craft/s_connie.htm)
Scaled is Rumored to be bringing out something big from what I hear. (Scaled = SpaceShipOne, Whiteknight, think X-Prize)
The Flymarket (Aviation Related Flea Market)
Jimmy Franklen and his jet powered Waco Biplane (think a prop + jet @ 4500lbs of thrust @ over 2000HP) http://www.airventure.org/2004/performers/jimmy_franklin.html
Lots of Warbirds (Flights of 12 to 36 P-51s and even larger flights of AT-6s and T-28s have happened in the past)

Lots of famous guest speakers/forum leaders etc.

And many more things I'm forgetting I'm sure.


If you are a fan of aviation in any form, you owe it to yourself to come out to Airventure Oshkosh someday. It's absolutly the best week of aviation I've ever been involved with. There are airshows everyday, starting at 3:30pm, and 1pm on the weekends. There are many many forums and workshops on every aspect of flying. There is the great EAA musuem. There are acres of planes. And a lot of damn fine pilots and people.

Gonna be a great week. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
