Rain on Thursday offered an additional challenge to ground preparations for AirVenture, but those challenges are being met and arrivals continue to be accommodated at the grounds at Oshkosh.

“There are challenges every year when preparing for and during Oshkosh,” EAA chairman/president Tom Poberezny said. “The advantage of nearly 60 years of fly-in experience is that plans are in place to meet situations such as this. We are making the necessary adjustments based on current conditions.”

The bulk of camping aircraft will not arrive until the weekend, so there is plenty of parking to accommodate early arrivals. In addition, drive-in camping units continue to arrive at Camp Scholler.

“People have been very patient and appreciate the extra mile our volunteers are going to help them,” Poberezny said. “Those volunteers and EAA staff are doing everything necessary to be ready for the opening of AirVenture on July 26.”

EAA will continue to update conditions to provide accurate information and assistance to all those traveling to Oshkosh for the event, which starts July 26. AirVenture aircraft parking status is also available online here.

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