Advance purchase admission tickets and camping are now available for the 60th annual edition of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. The week-long event will be held July 23-29 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
EAA members and non-members can purchase daily and weekly admissions. Discounts are available to those who pre-purchase AirVenture tickets online before June 15, 2012, including $2 on daily adult admissions and $5 on weekly adult admissions, according to EAA officials.
New for 2012, EAA member spouse and guest admissions have been streamlined into the adult EAA member rates, officials note. In addition, all EAA member spouse tickets will include a $15 merchandise credit for a weekly ticket and $2 merchandise credit for a daily ticket. This credit can be used at any official EAA merchandise location during AirVenture 2012.
Advance purchase camping for Camp Scholler, which opens on June 22, 2012, provides the convenience of express registration at the campground entrance, including specially designated lines on peak arrival dates, officials add.
Additionally, attendees are able to pre-purchase flights on EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” or a vintage Ford Tri-Motor.
