EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedSPOT Announces Exclusive Offer for EAA Members Attending AirVenture
Free satellite messenger unit offered to all EAAers at Oshkosh
  
EAA members attending EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2008 will find their membership even more valuable this year, as SPOT will be waiting for them on the grounds. EAA members are eligible to receive a free SPOT Satellite Messenger through an exclusive offer from SPOT Inc. available only at Oshkosh.

SPOT Inc. announced that their SPOT Satellite Messenger (a $169.99 value) will be available to current EAA members free of charge when they subscribe to a one-year satellite service package, ideal for pilots, for $149.98 at AirVenture.

SPOT is the world's first satellite messenger that uses the GPS network to pinpoint a user's location, then transmits that information to friends, family or an emergency response center over a separate satellite network. SPOT works where cell phones don't and communicates like GPS devices can't, making it a real asset to pilots and their loved ones. Users can even track and share their flying adventures online using Google Maps.

"EAA members and their passion for aviation have made EAA AirVenture one of the world's great aviation events, and a place where businesses know they can receive straightforward feedback from pilots on innovations," said Rick Larsen, EAA's vice president of marketing. "SPOT wanted to reach out to EAA members with an exclusive offer for its new technology that works whether you're just checking in with the family or need emergency assistance."

This exclusive offer is available to current EAA members whether they join or renew prior to arriving at AirVenture or join at the event.

"EAA members come from around the world to enjoy all the activities at Oshkosh, and SPOT can offer them the assurance that they are never out of touch," said Darren Bassel, Director of Marketing for SPOT Inc. "Since EAA AirVenture brings together more aviation enthusiasts than any other gathering, we came to EAA to make the innovative SPOT technology available to them."
