View 2016 Skiplane Fly-In Photos
One of the area’s most colorful events of the season returns for its 25th year. The annual EAA Skiplane Fly-In, will be held on Saturday, February 18, at the EAA Aviation Museum’s Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh.
This special winter event, which has welcomed more than 30 skiplanes in the past, celebrates the unique flight segment of skiplane flying as well as the anniversary of the first-ever meeting of the Experimental Aircraft Association on January 26, 1953.
The event begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 1:30 p.m. and is free of charge to the general public. The majority of skiplanes will arrive (weather and runway conditions permitting) mid-morning and stay until mid-afternoon. Guests are welcome to enjoy the sights and sounds of Pioneer Airport while enjoying a warm bowl of soup or chili and a sweet treat. There will be kid activities and fun for all ages!
Signs will direct visitors to the skiplane area upon arrival to the museum. Shuttle services will also operate from Basler Flight Service for those landing at Wittman Regional Airport.
Pilots who wish to participate must receive approval and flight briefings from EAA prior to landing at Pioneer Airport.
Please contact EAA’s Olivia Rasmus at 920-426-6599 or at email@example.com to participate in the fly-in or to address any air operations questions.
