For many people who come to AirVenture, the Homebuilts area is their happy place. With a variety of types from seas of RVs to singular standouts, it's easy to see why.
In Why We Fly
Flying with Draco and the Cowboys!
EAA took a visit to Utah and stopped by the Flying Cowboys to see what they were up to. While there, we got to fly with DRACO! Weather prevented any mountain flying and cut the trip short, but it was a blast! Backcountry flying is where it's at!
Midwing Special - It Used to Be a What?
Believe it or not, this airplane used to be a Super Cub. Ben Anderson, EAA 1032615, bought the one-of-a-kind Midwing Special from air show pilot Ned Surratt about three years ago, and spent a couple of years restoring it before bringing it to #OSH17.
Getting Away - Javron Super Cub
Bill Rusk, EAA 350098, built his Javron Super Cub for a specific mission: Alaskan bush flying. Hear the story of the airplane and the mission from Bill himself, and get a look at the incredible scenic views he enjoys from his Javron Cub.
National Aviation Day
It’s National Aviation Day on August 19! We not only celebrate our freedom to fly, but we reflect on how far we have come since Wilbur and Orville Wright took to the sky in 1903. We hope you have an aviation-filled day!
Taking Off Together - Flying Clubs
Flying clubs are a great way for pilots to get more affordable flight time, but they also provide a window into aviation for the surrounding communities. Hands-on experiences around the hangar and flight training opportunities are all benefits.
Finding the Spirit of Aviation in the Backcountry
There might be more dust, playa desert, and cowboys in Nevada than in Wisconsin, but the atmosphere, camaraderie, and love for aviation felt all over the dry lakebed at the High-Sierra Fly-In had quite the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh convention feel!
