EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS Feed Patty Wagstaff to Address Educators at AirVenture Teachers Day
Patty Wagstaff will address educators at AirVenture's annual Teachers Day.

June 12, 2013 - Three-time national aerobatic champion and Aerospace Hall of Famer Patty Wagstaff will speak at Teachers Day on Tuesday, July 30, during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013. Teachers Day is sponsored by Build A Plane, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), and EAA.

"We cannot tell you how excited we are to have the first lady of aviation come to our program and share her experiences with teachers from all across the United States," said Build A Plane's executive director, Katrina Bradshaw. Wagstaff is a six-time member of the US Aerobatic Team and the first woman to be named national aerobatics champion.

In addition to all of her airborne achievements, Wagstaff spends much of her time in East Africa, where she voluntarily trains pilots for the Kenya Wildlife Service, who protect elephants, rhinos, and other wildlife from poachers.

The fifth annual Teachers Day provides teachers with ideas and insight to use aviation to motivate youth to learn more about science, engineering, technology, and math. Teachers Day is free, and open to any educators who would like to participate. EAA provides teachers who attend with free admission to AirVenture, free parking, and a free lunch on the day of the event.

Teachers wishing to participate need to register online. Contact Bradshaw at 804-843-3321 for more information.
