EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedNew AirVenture Website Launched
  
EAA 's redesigned AirVenture website is live, reconfigured to bring you all the information and interactive features of the 2009 convention and fly-in - whether you're experiencing the event in person or following it from home.

With more Wi-Fi capabilities throughout the convention grounds, more visitors are heading to the Internet to find out what they need to know about AirVenture events and activities than ever before. But if you can't get to Oshkosh, the redesigned website will also allow you to experience the convention in real time.

The new site is easier to navigate and will allow all viewers to quickly see the top news at a glance. It features five tabs - News, Twitter, EAA Radio, Quick Pix, and Community - that allow you to find what you're looking for fast.

News stories will be added and updated throughout the day, while Twitter will carry immediate bursts of information about changes in the schedule, can't-miss activities, or news you need to know, such as when aircraft camping is full or when a special unplanned flyby may take place.

The EAA Radio tab allows you to listen live, or hear featured programming archives like the air show or Theater in the Woods presentations. EAA Radio is streaming live 24/7 already and will continue throughout the week of AirVenture.

Quick Pix is just as its name implies. EAA's photographers will post pictures on the popular photo website, Flickr, also in real time. For example, when VMS Eve is doing fly-bys above Wittman Regional Airport, EAA photographers plan to capture images on their iPhones and upload them directly to Flickr before the mothership even reaches the ground.

The Community page will allow you to comment on stories and events, creating a conversation among members and other aviation enthusiasts via the newly established Oshkosh365 free online social network. With Oshkosh365 you'll be able to connect with people, share knowledge and information through message boards, join or start special interest groups, follow your favorite aviation blogs, podcasts, and more.

But that's not all. The remodeled website will also include AirVenture videos and photo galleries highlighting various activities each day. Plus, you'll see a Flickr tab on the home page that will allow you to submit photos and/or see AirVenture photos taken by other visitors.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
