EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 application, presented by Textron Aviation, is the official mobile app for AirVenture attendees (and is now available for iOS and Android devices). Whether you come to fly or come to watch, when you visit EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, you experience the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.
Just in time for AirVenture, we rolled it out of our maintenance hangar after a major overhaul to simplify and streamline navigation, improve battery life and accuracy, and squash some bugs.
The EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 application makes it easy to plan your travel to Oshkosh and maximize your stay. Use the map to navigate the grounds, discover more than 1,000 attractions, workshops and forums, visit over 800 exhibitors, and never miss a moment with features like “Near Me” or “Happening Now."
The official EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 application is now available as a free download on iTunes (supports iOS version 7 or higher) and Google Play. (supports Android version 2.3.3 or higher)

The persistent navigation bar will allow you to quickly explore the different features.

My Plan and Notes
Use the “My Plan” to easily organize your personal schedule that you bookmarked from the “Attractions” area, and never miss a thing by setting reminders for when events begin. You can easily keep notes on what you hear, see, and learn by using the “Notes” section on each event.
The interactive map will use the GPS on your phone to show your current location on the grounds and also features a quick menu to identify attractions or points of interest like our different neighborhoods (Homebuilts, Ultralights, Vintage, andWarbirds) or the nearest food vendors, water fountains and restrooms. Use it to show you where an attraction is located or just find the easiest route to your next event.
“Near Me” and “Happening Now”
If you ever find yourself wondering where to go or what to next, this combined feature will use your map location and the time of day to provide a list of attractions happening now and surrounding you.
Stay on schedule by setting notification reminders for any of the attractions or events. You can also choose to get notifications to let you know what is going on around the grounds including weather, activities, schedule changes and more.
NOTE: To ensure that the app displays the most current information regarding schedules, etc., and to receive notification reminders for events saved in your plan, please be sure to enable notifications upon download of the app and accept app updates when you receive a notification. If you chose not to receive notifications, you can update manually by going to Preferences on the navigation bar and tapping Update Content. We'll be making regular content updates from now through the end of the event so be sure to stay current!
