Planning is already underway for next year’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, slated for July 25-31 at Wittman Regional Airport (OSH). Slated to be celebrated next year is the Centennial of Naval Aviation, as well as the centennial of the air mail service.
After its debut this summer, the AirVenture night air show is also scheduled to return and be held in conjunction with fireworks on Saturday, July 30.
“The planning for events at AirVenture never really stops. We just catch our breath for a few days after the end of each year’s fly-in,” said EAA chairman Tom Poberezny, who continues to serve as AirVenture chairman.
On the grounds, site improvements that began in 2009 will continue over the coming months. Some points of emphasis include improving drainage in areas that were submerged during record-setting rains last July prior to AirVenture 2010. Exhibit areas, aircraft parking, and the drive-in Camp Scholler are among those areas receiving priority attention.
