Growing demand has brought an increased supply of homebuilt aircraft parking and camping spots for AirVenture 2012, in an area that has become more and more popular since it first opened about a decade ago.

More than 75 parking and camping spots for homebuilt aircraft owners and pilots will be added adjacent to the current homebuilt camping area, immediately north of the P-1 taxiway. This new parking area was formed by the annexation of the former Red Lot auto parking area and closure of a secondary admission gate.

"Among the ideas we've heard from EAA members and homebuilders is to expand the parking and camping areas that are near the Honda Forum Pavilions and the homebuilt exhibitors, and give the homebuilders the sense of community as we see in other AirVenture aircraft areas," said Chad Jensen, EAA's homebuilt community manager. "This marks the third time that homebuilt aircraft camping areas have been expanded since they first opened about a decade ago. It creates more specific homebuilt aircraft parking area than ever at Oshkosh."

Homebuilt aircraft parking will also continue along the AirVenture flightline all the way to the entrance to the Phillips 66 Plaza showcase ramp. That will include parking areas near "show center" for the AirVenture Cup race aircraft that arrive on Sunday, July 22.

Among other projects in support of homebuilts at AirVenture 2012 is the remodeling of the Homebuilders Hangar building, an expanded "Homebuilts in Review" presentation series that focuses on a particular type of homebuilt, and a new AeroInnovate hangar with special displays and presentations that center the latest innovations in sport aviation.
