hundreds of the world's leading aviation authorities delivering close to 1,000
individual presentations at nearly 45 locations spread throughout the expansive
EAA convention grounds, planning your week at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2008 can
be, in a word, challenging. Fret not, eager aviation enthusiasts, because you
can plan your visit to The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration with EAA's
integrated presentations and workshops schedule database, and the preliminary
version is now available at www.AirVenture.org/forums.
The database will include all the venues,
subjects and topics, and presenters from not only forums and workshops, but
also Warbirds in Review, KidVenture, Museum Speakers Showcase, Authors Corner,
Theater in the Woods, special "at the aircraft" presentations on
AeroShell Square, and more. Simply put, if it's on a schedule, it'll be here,
allowing you to create custom searches to conveniently preplan your AirVenture
"We've worked hard at making the online
scheduling tool easy to use so AirVenture attendees can easily find exactly
what they're looking for, 24/7," said EAA staff member Mark Forss, who
coordinates the schedules. "It's impossible to see AirVenture all in one
day, but hopefully, through use of EAA's integrated presentations and workshops
schedule database, we can help you make the most of your visit."
added that his team is in the process of confirming schedules, making
modifications, and adding new presentations and will do so probably
through early July. "It's being updated daily, with changes and new
presentations being added all the time," he said.
The online schedule allows you to search for
activities by date, interest level (such as Aerobatics or Homebuilding), name
of presenter, location, or simply by keyword. Because the database is updated
daily, you will have the most accurate information available regarding changes,
additions, or cancellations.
During the convention, printed schedules will be available
in the EAA AirVenture Info Guide.
