NASA Administrator Michael Griffin

NASA Administrator Michael Griffin has confirmed that he will participate at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2008, which will be held July 28-August 3 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. Griffin’s participation will be part of the activities commemorating NASA’s 50th anniversary during the 56th annual edition of EAA AirVenture, “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.”

Griffin has served as NASA Administrator since 2005 and will be making his first visit to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in that role. Griffin, who holds a flight instructor certificate with instrument and multiengine ratings, also has a long career in space sciences and education.

“We are very pleased that Administrator Griffin will be participating at EAA AirVenture this summer,” said Tom Poberezny, EAA president and AirVenture chairman. “It’s fitting that his visit coincides with EAA’s observance of NASA’s 50th anniversary and all the agency’s achievements over the past half-century.”

EAA AirVenture has long been a destination for NASA Administrators, particularly during several NASA/aviation industry joint research initiatives in the 1990s. Griffin’s schedule at Oshkosh is still being finalized, with any public presentations to be announced as they are confirmed.

“I’m looking forward to being part of the world of flight that comes together each year at Oshkosh,” Griffin said. “EAA has long been a supporter of NASA, as we have a shared passion for innovation and flight.”
