EAA AirVenture 2006 Provides Great Value as 'The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration'
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. - (January 16, 2006) — EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration, also remains as one of the aviation world's great values in 2006, with a growing number of activities and no increase in camping rates from 2005.
The 54th annual edition of EAA's fly-in convention will be held July 24-30 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, with an unmatched lineup of aircraft, personalities, and events.
"Planning and hosting EAA AirVenture is a massive, complex undertaking, but EAA is committed to keeping the event a great value for those who attend," said Tom Poberezny, EAA president and AirVenture chairman. "If a person would try to see the major features and attractions of the event separately, and experience everything that makes AirVenture unique, it would cost five or six times as much, not counting the travel necessary to reach each venue."
EAA members pay the lowest admission rates, more than 33 percent below non-members prices on daily admission and nearly 50 percent less on weekly passes. EAA members also enjoy special pricing on merchandise and other items. Complete admission fee schedules and other details about AirVenture 2006 are available at the event's comprehensive www.airventure.org website.
"The bounty and depth of activities at EAA AirVenture allow a person to make the event as large or as intimate as they want," Poberezny said. "Factor in the value of all the one-of-a-kind experiences found at AirVenture and you reach the conclusion, 'You're just got to be there!'"
