The cockpit crew from US Airways Flight 1549, involved in one of the most riveting aviation events in recent years, will share their experiences at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2009, held at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh July 27-Aug. 2.
On Jan. 15, Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and First Officer Jeff Skiles successfully executed an emergency landing of an Airbus A320 airliner in the Hudson River in New York City.
“These two pilots have told their story to the world since the remarkable events of Jan. 15th, but at EAA AirVenture they’ll have the opportunity to talk in person
with fellow aviators on how their training, planning and airmanship skills were tested,” said Tom Poberezny, EAA chairman and president, as well as AirVenture chairman. “There is perhaps no place better than Oshkosh where an audience would understand the decision-making process that took place in the cockpit that day and learn the lessons from these two pilots’ experiences.”
