It’s Oshkosh AirVenture time again – and I mean the real Oshkosh AirVenture – not the watered-down version we had last year. Of course, ANY AirVenture is better than no AirVenture, but like comparing lite beer to the real stuff, there’s nothing like the original.
With all that in mind, this Oshkosh 2022 promises to be as big and exciting as the best of them all – at least as far as the airplanes go. With upwards of 100,000-plus airplanes on-site, 600,000-plus fellow airplane geeks, and countless product displays, there’s just so much for me to see and do – all while keeping my job.
All that, and we still have the vast array of special events, celebrations, and fly-bys that the EAA team puts together each year.
According to the current schedule, along with the daily airshows, Oshkosh 2022 promises to deliver an amazing selection of aircraft and demonstration flights, including the U.S. Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey, U.S. Air Force U-2, F-35, Navy EA-18G, and F-35C.
Not to be outdone, on the commercial and GA side, you’ll see fly-bys by the Airbus A330-900, Boeing 777, Vans RV 50th Anniversary formation flights, and so much more.
If you’re excited about the idea of an electric airplane or eVTOL, both the Ampaire Electric EEL and Lift Aviation Hexa are scheduled to put on flying demonstrations. I must confess I’m excited to see what they can do.
Stop by the Gulf Coast Avionics Booth 2029 in Hangar B.
Don’t forget to leave time to stop by our booth, say hello, and check out the incredible AirVenture 2022 deals from the top avionics brands. There’ll be deals too good to miss.
We’ll also have the GCA “panel experts” on hand to answer any questions you have about the latest avionics, availability, features, installations, or whatever. If you have any questions about creating your dream panel for an experimental or certified airplane, Gulf Coast Avionics is here to help.
Of course, if you can’t make it to Wittman Regional Airport this year (too bad for you) and have questions about our AirVenture deals or new avionics, I’m here to help you in any way I can. Just give me a call at 863.709.9714 (ext 112). Just a reminder, though, if you call the week of July 25th – I won’t be here, but another member of our avionics team will be happy to help you out.
Onward to Oshkosh!
Until next time, fly safely and have fun,
