Reminder: Plan for AirVenture’s Chapter Morning Sessions

July 12, 2011 –  Be sure to make plans to attend a few (or all) of the Chapter Morning Sessions during AirVenture. Each mini-forum will be held from 7:30 to 9 a.m., Monday through Friday, in the EAA Welcome Center located near ConocoPhillips Plaza on Celebration Way. 

The sessions are designed to get your day off to a good start without interfering with all the other activities going on throughout the day. We promise to have you on your way by 9 a.m. A light breakfast will be served starting at 7:30 a.m., with a program to follow at 7:45.
