EAA AirVenture Safety Protocols
Last updated May 10, 2021.
- EAA members now have the option to receive admissions credentials including wristbands in advance through our Express Arrival program. This is offered at no extra charge when you purchase your tickets online and eliminates the need to go to an admissions building.
- Masks will be strongly recommended if you are unable to social distance (roughly 6 feet or 2 meters).
- Proof of COVID vaccine will not be required to attend.
- International visitation is dependent on current international travel regulations and mandates in the U.S. and individual countries of residence.
- Increased physical distancing will be encouraged in all areas.
- EAA is adding significant numbers of sanitizing facilities and working with industry-leading companies for continual disinfection throughout the grounds.
- Theater in the Woods, forums pavilions, and other outdoor venues will operate with reduced seating capacity, with social distancing opportunities on the open grounds at that location.
- There will be fewer exhibitors in each indoor exhibit building, creating more walkways and separation between exhibitors. Additional venues on the grounds are being re-purposed to accommodate indoor exhibitors that are moved this year.
- Wherever possible, ventilation will be increased in tents and indoor facilities.
- Several annual events where physical distancing is not possible will not be held this year, including the Monday night concert; the EAA Lifetime Member Dinner, International Visitors Dinner, and Young Eagles Volunteer Award Dinner; the Runway 5K run/walk; the WomenVenture social; the Seaplane Base's Watermelon social, and large corporate events and receptions.
- High-demand forums and presentations will be scheduled more than once to accommodate demand while allowing for distancing.
