EAAer to mark 20 years of flight at Oshkosh

Twenty years ago next year, Mac Swindell, EAA 618280, earned his Private Pilot Certificate and he plans to celebrate that milestone in style - he's bringing the family to Oshkosh next July 27-August 2 for EAA AirVenture 2009.

This happens to be Swindell's turn to pick the family vacation destination, so he decided they'd make their first trip to AirVenture Oshkosh. That decision was made even easier when he read about advance tickets becoming available online in the October 30 edition of e-Hotline. Swindell wasted little time logging on and buying five tickets for he and his wife, Taylora, and their three sons ages 7, 10, and 12. In fact, he was first in line at the AirVenture cyber window.

"As soon as I saw they were available, I went ahead and bought 'em," he said. "We're looking forward to all of it, the entire week - the airplanes, the vendors, the air shows. I can't wait!"

The Swindells will camp throughout the week in their pop-up, which means they'll drive to Oshkosh from their home in Piedmont, Oklahoma. "I'd love to fly up but can't figure out how to tow the trailer behind the airplane," he joked. Mac flies a Beech A36 Bonanza.

This is the first time ever that tickets to the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration are available for purchase before the holiday season, which has aviation enthusiasts everywhere dreaming of a Flight Christmas.

Tickets purchased in advance include discounts of $2 for daily admissions and $5 for weekly admissions. Join the Swindell family at Oshkosh this year, and order your tickets today!
