Yep, they can spell out anything at EAA!

EAA AirVenture is the World’s Largest Fly-In! What CAN’T you experience here? This year, they’re celebrating 50 years in Oshkosh, with extra celebrations all around!

EAA stands for Experimental Aircraft Association, and it’s a total blast. Whether you come to fly or just watch, you experience the world’s greatest aviation celebration. Warbirds. Vintage. Homebuilts. Ultralights, even the Blue Angels!

Enjoy all kinds of planes, aerobatics, hands-on workshops, and celebrations. AirVenture draws flight enthusiasts from across the globe, briefly turning Oshkosh’s Wittman Regional Airport into one of the busiest airports in the world.

Aerial firefighting will be a major theme at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 with support from the U.S. Forest Service and other aircraft operators and manufacturers. EAA will also be working with the U.S. Forest Service and other entities to bring various firefighting aircraft to AirVenture to allow visitors to see them up close.

The annual fly-in convention kicks off Monday with free admission for Oshkosh residents and an opening-night concert featuring pop-rock band The Fray.

Throughout the week, a ton of other activities will take place including a tribute to World War II flying ace Bud Anderson, the 50th anniversary of the Boeing 747, and a celebration of 50 years since Apollo 11, featuring astronaut Michael Collins.
