EAA Radio celebrates 12 years

On the grounds and around the world, EAA Radio brings AirVenture Oshkosh to you 24/7 at 1210 AM, on 100.5 FM, and www.AirVenture.org/radio/. Now in its 12th year, EAA Radio allows you to be a part of The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration even if you’re half a world away.

Live programming starts each day of the convention at 7 a.m. CDT/1200 Zulu and includes interviews with a variety of guests from all corners of aviation. In any given hour you can hear a conversation with a famous test pilot, the last word on air traffic control etiquette, the newest innovation in homebuilt aircraft, or the deeply personal journey of an amateur builder. Programming concludes on Sunday, August 3, following the conclusion of the last air show.

Along with studio interviews, EAA Radio field reporters cover the convention grounds to meet interesting people who make the event unique.

EAA Radio also provides coverage of important AirVenture events as the Meet the Administrator forum, new product announcements, and the daily showcase and air show. Each evening, EAA Radio brings you Theater in the Woods live with its colorful lineup of presentations, speakers, and entertainment. For AirVenture attendees, EAA Radio is a mobile source for convention information including events, weather, information on EAA services, and twice-hourly announcements of upcoming forums and presentations.

EAA Radio continues to diversify its programming, and this year it will have added several new daily features, as well as unique on-air programming that can only occur at AirVenture.

AirVenture University (11:30 a.m. CDT/1630Z daily)

It started with the popular House Subcommittee on Aviation and Meet the Administrator forums. Now, EAA Radio will broadcast live one forum each day in its entirety so that those who wished they could be there can still be informed and entertained.
