authors, experts, and legends - who share their accumulated knowledge
with all who attend. It is the most comprehensive collection of aviation
knowledge available anywhere, and it’s all in one location, EAA
AirVenture Oshkosh. Learn
Homebuilding gets to the heart of EAA, and

Yellow Ribbon Honor Flight
Be among the thousands saluting veteras as they make their emotional return from a daylong tour of memorials in Washington, D.C. - a welcome home reception that many did not receive for their service and sacrifice - at the conclusion of Friday's air show. Learn
An outstanding roster of aviation personalities is slated to appear
every day, telling their personal stories throughout several locations
at the world-class EAA AirVenture Museum. Over 100 Speaker Showcase
presentations provide an opportunity to hear first hand from a variety
of aviation legends and historians. Learn
Author's Corner is open daily at the EAA Wearhouse. It’s not just about great aviation books - though there are
plenty from which to choose. Author’s Corner is more about
special places where people from around the world drop by to converse
about flight, patriotism, and friendships.
Throughout the week of AirVenture, the Federal Pavilion will include exhibits, aircraft from the various government agencies, live radar and weather monitoring demonstrations, and interactive displays, including the Wright Flyer and NOAA Hurricane simulators.
