EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedAirVenture Live was Virtual Seat on the Flightline
The AirVenture Live Web portal was the key intersection for many who could not attend the convention. News, videos, photos, and archives of the daily AirVenture edition of e-Hotline and AirVenture Today were all available in one place. EAA Videos was accessed almost 350,000 times during the week, yet the truly active area of AirVenture Live was the streaming Runway Cams, EAA Radio, and LiveATC.net.

EAA Radio: The Voice of AirVenture
In its 16th year EAA Radio's 45 volunteers were very busy through the eight days of live AirVenture programming. Broadcast locally on 93.3 FM and on the Internet, nearly 9,000 people listened to the webstream for an average of 23 minutes. Every live morning interview slot was filled throughout the week as the EAA Radio hosts talked to scores of people live in The Studio in the Sky at the Bill Fobes Broadcast Center along the flightline. More than 160 interviews were recorded.

"The schedule filled up early this year, which was unprecedented," said Co-Chairman Thomas Balisteri. "However, we anticipated this and many additional interviews were recorded off-air."

Runway Cams Expand Coverage of AirVenture
In 2009 the Blue Dot Cam was an experiment by EAA Radio volunteers to see if the runway cam concept would work, and Oshkosh365 members responded with overwhelming approval. Blue Dot became the most viewed part of Oshkosh365 in 2009. This year three runway cams were available: the Blue Dot, Runway 9-27, and AeroShell Square. About 7,000 EAA members watched the runway cameras from 52 countries. If you have suggestions for next year's runway cams, join the discussion on Oshkosh365.

Online Community Hosts Perpetual Town Hall Meeting
This year, more than ever before, EAA staff, volunteers, members, and visitors shared their experiences online. In addition to the nearly 800 forum posts in the message boards, the webcams hosted on Oshkosh365 saw more than 120,000 hits by visitors from more than 50 countries around the world. Revisit the online AirVenture 2010 community again at Oshkosh365, Facebook, Flickr (OSH10 tag, sorted by most recent), and YouTube.  Read Hal's summary about the AirVenture online community experience here.

AirVenture Today Continues Pulp Legacy, Goes Digital
2010 was the first year AirVenture Today was offered in a digital magazine format. Readers were able to page through the newspaper in a similar fashion to the digital version of EAA Sport Aviation. The digital version had the ability to zoom in, and had thumbnails of each page available at the bottom so users could jump to specific pages if desired. Nearly 11,000 people read the digital version of AirVenture Today during AirVenture. The entire AirVenture Today 2010 archive can be found here.
