Partnership gathers at Federal Pavilion

For the 18th consecutive year, U.S., Bahamian, and Canadian government agencies will form the International Federal Partnership (IFP) at EAA AirVenture’s Federal Pavilion, located along the flightline north of the old control tower.

Throughout the week, the Federal Pavilion will include exhibits, aircraft from the various government agencies, live radar and weather monitoring demonstrations, and interactive displays, including the Wright Flyer and NOAA hurricane simulators. Display aircraft include a vintage Fairchild aircraft that served with the U.S. National Park Service, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Cessna 206 amphibian airplane, a National Guard Counterdrug Program OH-58 helicopter, and several other amazing aircraft.

In addition to the displays and exhibits, several forums are scheduled, presented by the various government agency representatives. These forums include live demonstrations, interactive presentations, and information regarding the missions of the government agencies.

The partnership will also be hosting EAA’s 15th annual AirVenture Make-A-Wish day on Saturday, August 2, where IFP representatives provide a fun-filled day for special children and their families through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The day includes a flight in EAA’s Bell 47 helicopter, and numerous other exciting activities.
