Representatives of the International Federal Partnership (IFP) met in Oshkosh Thursday, May 8, to make plans for the Federal Pavilion at EAA AirVenture 2008. This year's slate of participants includes 15 agencies from the United States, Canada, and the Bahamas, including a new participating agency this year, Canada Border Services (the equivalent of U.S. Customs). They're all housed in the Pavilion, located along the flight line north of the control tower. AirVenture visitors can visit the pavilion and ask questions of the participating agencies, as well as attend demonstrations and presentations held there throughout the week.

"The meeting was a success," said Aaron Sauer, public affairs officer for the IFP, and an investigator with the NTSB. "We're all looking forward to an exciting week at AirVenture 2008!" To learn more about the IFP and participating agencies, visit the AirVenture website.
