When Paul and Audrey Poberezny founded EAA in 1953, they had no idea
what it would become. Oshkosh became the prime choice for a new location 50
years ago because of the unusual airport layout, the availability of land around
the grounds, and the support of airport manager and legendary race pilot Steve
Wittman. Since that time, our annual convention has grown to be the largest
aviation event of any kind, what we call the World’s Greatest Aviation
Celebration. Things have changed since that first Oshkosh fly-in, but the
culture of EAAers – that indefinably perfect mix of passion, can-do spirit, and
camaraderie – has only grown stronger and more vibrant with each passing year.
